This is the 102nd post on this blog. This is not the first blog I’ve owned. I used to have a blogspot blog about music, which rapidly disintegrated because my taste was so clearly superior to the average readers. I still have a blog of bad poetry. You can probably still find my MySpace blog. I had a Livejournal page for a while. I created my own blog during high school on AngelFire.com. All of these blogs have had various metrics.
WordPress is the easiest format to use, and so I am glad I switched to it. I was convinced to switch by Jess Glass, who doesn’t even understand the Interwebs. WordPress also has the easiest to understand metrics.
I meant to make my 100th post about some of the interesting metrics, particularly some of the popular search terms that lead people to my site. Brandon J. Carr was the first I saw to do this. I would link the specific hilarious entry, but am having trouble finding it. Anyway, I wasn’t paying attention, and my 100th blog was a list of rules on performing, which you probably didn’t read but should…unless you don’t ever perform, in which case you could probably skip it unless you like me, in which case you should read it. And comment.
So…what was I saying? Oh, metrics. I’ll get to that in a minute. There are a few blogs I read a lot: Discursive Words, Adam Whitley, Grace Unfiltered, Life as Amy Caton, You are What You Sing… I comment occasionaly, but I guess I should more since I like reading with you comment on my blog. I particularly like some of the discussions sparked on Grace Unfiltered…and yes, I think you can be a Christian and a democrat…and Discursive Words…though I think the ability to read at all is completely unnecessary. Wait…huh? I don’t see eye to eye with some of my friends’ opinion pieces, but that’s all good. I don’t like being made to feel like I am less than or not as good as someone else, but I’ll still read your thoughts, even though my opinions are obviously better.
Anyway. Read more blogs. They are fun. And dumb. What? No. What?
What you got in that case?
