THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!
We bloggers have all been bullied by The Great "Goo-Gaul" Gods into posting, posting, posting, ad nauseam. You see, according to the "Gooroos" (acolytes of the Great "Goo-Gaul" Gods) "Content is King" and posting once a day is not enough now. Posting twice to thrice a day is obligatory if you want that all hallowed "page rank".
I had happily been posting my little retro pop culture stories, a rant or two here, a martini recipe and a "tiny food" recipe every few days, skipping down Blogger Boulevard, happy as a kid in a candy store. Then one of those acolytes burst my bubble with a spam "buy my how to get rich yesterday" email telling me I was never going to be on the first page of a search engine if I didn't post my fingers to the nubs.
I panicked, I fretted, I posted half my story in the morning, half my story in the afternoon. I pirated videos from YouTube (oh, okay I still do that) and wracked my festering brain for MORE CONTENT! I woke up at 3 a.m. wondering, "OMG, what will I post tomorrow?"
Then I got pissed off because The Great "Goo-Gaul" Gods and their toady purveyors of constant content had taken the joy out of my blogging. Yup, just like any other religion, They took all the fun out of it!
The Seven Commandments of Blogging for Ranking?
- There shall be no other Search Engines Before Us.
- Ye shall not take the name of thy Search Engine in vain.
- Ye shall not spill Pepsi on the Hosts of the Keyboard.
- Ye shall not commit Yahoo.
- Ye shall not covet the top 100 blogs.
- Ye shall honor the Search Algorithm for it is Holy.
- Ye shall never have fun.

ON THE UPSIDE: I said it before and I'll say it again - if I ain't got nothin' to say I ain't saying nothin' - I shall write no post before it's time - or when I have a new piece of art to sell.
P.S. Here's some of my new Martini Art!
