For Your Information

Posting on a blog every single day is no easy task. At least for me. I know a few people that post every day and have been for a long time. At least one of those persons manages to write substantial posts that are not only long but are well organized and well written. I appreciate that effort but it also pisses me off.

I'm on Day 8 of my New Year's post daily resolution (although I have amassed at grand total of 10 consecutive posts in 10 days, counting this one). Chug-a-chug-chug. I feel like the Little Engine That Could. Running out of steam.

It's not that I've run out of topics. I can talk/write forever. It's that I really care about what I choose to write about and writing it well. (OK, no comments from the peanut gallery on my success or lack thereof) My problem is that I'm a slow writer. And a really shitty typist. I tend to skip over words when I type. They are there when the sentence is formed in my head but somehow they don't make it to the page, so I always have to go back and reread what I've written for the missing words (sometimes it's just letters - I just added the 'a' to 'wht'). And when I reread I find myself rewriting. Looking for a better way to say the same thing.

Now that you know my (lack of) process, I'm going to ask you a few questions that will surely set myself up for failure. Why? Because most (almost all) of the people who are nice enough to stop by and read my words or look at my pictures never leave a comment. And the questions I'm going to ask require people to comment. Asking questions of people who don't like to comment = FAILURE.

So, let's call these the failure questions:

What do you want me to post?

Do you have any questions (no holds barred) you'd like me to answer?


Anybody out there?

Picture of the Day:
Just so you know, when I opened this picture I wanted to reword the questions. Add more details. But if I do that, I'd have to take a new picture. But then you'd never know I did that, would you? I'm so tempted. Somebody get me some handcuffs. Nevermind. I'm strong. I'm not even going to reread this post. Feel free to point out the errors.

Post what you like. I come for the rock star porn and your sardonic wit.

Mostly the porn.

Tell us about your day to day, and if that brings up a story, all the better. Throw questions out to us. Tell us about your passions, what inspires you. Show me more good food pics like that tri tip sandwich..Mmmmm
