Stop adding me to your stupid newsletters


Unless someone asks to be added to a newsletter or email chain don’t add people just because you have our emails off our blogs. That isn’t a good kind of self promotion, it is annoying as shit. Don’t be that person. I block those people for being idiots.

10 Reasons Terrorists are Angry


1. They are forced to live in a cave with a bunch of men for extended periods of time and they are probably sleeping on the ground. That just doesn’t sound like fun to me. Camping to me is staying at the Holiday Inn.

2. They have all these wives that they never see and thus never get the physical benefit from, but we have to assume they have email, telephones, and ways to talk with their relatives daily. So they get to hear all the bitching, complaining, moaning, and groaning and get none of the good things out of marriage like sex. Yea… I’d want to shoot something too.

3. They get called into the commander’s office and sat down to talk about a “really important mission” and they get all excited until they turn to page 73 which reads “and then you explode.” When patted on the back and told “don’t worry you’ll get X many wives after death” they are never given an explanation for why they can’t just get more wives now and not blow up. That is a raw deal.

4. Your weapons have stayed the same since your grandfather was fighting and everyone else gets new toys each year. It is like a country without Christmas.

5. They said grab your stuff we are going on a trip. That was ten years ago.

6. Your team name keeps changing each year. How can you not have a favorite team? I would be pissed off too.

7. Every time you go to the airport the guard just shakes his head, laughs, and tells you to turn around. How rude!

8. You keep getting added to a new list with a new color each year. You are starting to feel like a rainbow and you hate rainbows.

9. All you want is a Number 1 combo from McDonalds.

10. Almost everywhere you fight is a desert and the desert is hot as hell.

I have writers block. Not right now per se, but I get it often. I get it because I have a fear of failure. I’m a perfectionist although I’m working on it thank you very much. The fear of failure is something we all experience to a certain degree, in our work, hobbies, everyday life. We always get scared of screwing up at some point; and it’s okay. We need to be reminded we aren’t machines, we aren’t programmed to always succeed and we are not to be replaced when we make a mistake because we haven’t fulfilled our purpose. We are human. We fail. We succeed. We do it all over again. It’s part of the circle of life.

Now there are people who want to/ try to distance themselves from the possibility of failing, which I completely understand. It’s not necessarily the best way to deal with an…

Opinionated Man:

Good stuff! It is never a bad thing to study your stats and really find out what works with your blog. Many bloggers consider that “lame,” but I personally see it as doing necessary homework. Nice post and best of luck on your next milestone! -OM

The graph looks like it’s on its way up but I need to see darker shades of blue than the “sky” ones … I need to attract more visitors

Well, I visit the “Stats” from time to time not really making heads and tails of it. I just know that it counts everything happening in my site but have not thought much of what I can use it for.

After 3 months of being in the WordPress community I am not feeling bad with my stats. In fact the graph looks like I’m on my way up but of course I like the darker shades of blue higher than it is now. Don’t you?
The Darker the Blue the better it is for my site — it means more of you are reading my blog and hopefully don’t just click the “like” star but leave…
