We are doing the renovation thing.
You know. Tearing out the carpet, putting down hardwood. The kitchen is being gutted this summer while we are on vacation.
Thankfully. I don’t think that MLW could exist with someone taking a crowbar to her kitchen. Unless he let her help.
As we are doing all of this renovation, we are also in the market for window treatments. Blinds need to be chosen, and then ordered. I am leaning towards verticle blinds in the living room. Of course we all know how much my vote is worth.
I went off on a wild content tangent the other day on my other blog. I read so many blogs on a regular basis, and each one of the writers seems to have the same lament.
They don’t have enough to write about. Or maybe that isn’t fair. They don’t have enough interesting things to write about. So some of them do the Meme thing. Which drives me crazy. I don’t like Memes. They are, to me, stupid. I would much rather read an interview with an interesting person.
In keeping with the content theme, I was talking to a co-worker on Wednesday (which I kept thinking was Thursday. Must be wishful thinking, because I am leaving for Arizona on Saturday.) and I asked him why he reads my blogs. And he told me that he doesn’t read to learn anything in particular other than my view of the events that go on during my day. I was flattered. Of course, he has the same sarcastic sense of humor that I have so it is an easy match. But other than scary clowns, retail etiquette rants seem to be the biggest reader draw. That is interesting, and scary all at the same time. Interesting because I want to know what it is about these rants that folks are finding so appealing. Is it the words used to describe the situation? Is it that they can relate to the situation? Or is it that they want to see someone in a difficult situation? It’s scary in that there seem to be more and more blogs popping up talking about this very same thing. And yet the behavior continues. You would think that with more information being shared, that negative behavior would change. And it isn’t changing. Hmmmmmm.
But content is what keeps people coming back to my little slice of heaven. And content is what I am going to give you. I will be on line during my time in Arizona, talking about my fun in the sun. And when I get back I will be talking about the new beer that I will be bottling, along with the new beer that I will be making and putting in the fermenter. Some things never change, do they?
Keep a warm thought out for Spring. It has to come soon. Remember that March 9th is the day that those of us in the Eastern, and Central time zones turn our clocks ahead 1 hour. Spring ahead, and Fall behind. Remember that from school?
That all being said, I will be reaching out to some of my fellow bloggers requesting interviews with them. Small interviews. 5-6 questions to keep it simple, and we will see where it goes from there. If you like the idea, tell me so. If you don’t like the idea, tell me so and give me a better idea. I am open to what you might have to share. I am an open kind of guy.
