Two things occurred to me recently:
1. I need to write a new blog entry, but I don’t want to do a lot of work.
2. I know of at least a couple of people that just started reading my blog and who are new to the wonder that is my writing.
An idea struck! I should do a “Best of the Blog” blog entry! Minimal work for me, maximum enjoyment for you! Win-win! Plus, this way I don’t have to talk about the Superbowl. Goddamn Giants.
So, in no order, some of my favorite blog entries:
A Mopsy Proposal: This is one of the highest viewed entries on my site for some truly terrible reasons. I get a lot of people searching for pet rabbit related information (“bunny habitat” being a popular search term) and then stumbling across this post. Probably not my best foot forward for gaining new fans.
Quittin’ Time: I wrote this blog entry ten days after I quit smoking and I was feelin’ it at that point. A huge part of why I even wrote the entry was to help keep me on track. So yay to not smoking.
Retail Employee’s Lament: I wrote this during a dark time in my life. I had transferred to Borders Downtown Crossing after closing the Back Bay Borders (which was the second store I closed) and I was dangerously close to burning out. I think a few weeks AFTER this post, I found out that the whole company was going down and I would be closing my third and final Borders store. Please be nice to retail, you have no idea what they’ve been through.
Isolated Moments on a Long Road: This is probably one of my favorite blog entries, because it came the closest to what I had in my head and it was especially important that I got it right.
Don’t Know the Words: Another popular blog entry. I was really bummed out when I wrote this, as you can probably tell. It still drives me crazy that I’m better with words when I’m writing than when I’m talking.
In Defense of Eve: I rarely write about religion, but I had a bee in my bonnet about this. Eve is awesome. If you don’t agree, read my blog post.
A Long Walk: Last entry, written when I worked at the Borders at Chestnut Hill during the snowiest winter in years. Good times.
I hope you new people enjoy the entries. Those are among the best ones I wrote and cover a wide range of hilarious to insightful to hilariously insightful.
Addendum: This took as long to write as a real blog entry. Hell’s bells.
