I looked through the raw html code and couldn't find anything that could be even remotely construed as a reason for my blog to be unpalatable to IE. I'm not giving up, I'm just saying that this could take a while.
Anyways, I said yesterday that I'd post about my Blogger rituals. No, this isn't a cop-out to get out of posting something entertaining, interesting, or insightful tonight... I swear...
As far as blog reading goes, I am not quite as expansive as others. Most of the blogs I read in a given day are the ones linked here, not only on the blog section but also those that are attatched to the webcomics. The others usually belong to people who post on my blog or the blogs I've linked. Occasionally I'll use the Next Blog button.
If your site blog has a comment of mine on it, congrats. You have managed the difficult task of sustaining my interest for more than fifteen seconds, and then, moreover, you've written something that catches my rather weird fancy.
As for the actual writing, the first thing I do is check the comments on my blog, and every site linked on my blog for updates, and furthermore search google news for anything interesting. However, what I actually decide to write about depends on what sort of mood I'm in. If I'm wired, you'll probably see something with maybe a bit of an edge to it, and sometimes in a Gonzo-ish manner. This will not be the time for philosophy, generally. If I'm responding to a news article, it'll probably something I'm riled up about one way or another. If I'm tired, but for some reason still choosing to stare into the screen and move my fingers across the keyboard, that is when the weirdness and the ranting, and occasionally the wild absurdity comes. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.
no matter what my mood, I try to write in a way that when read, feels like someone else is reading it to you. It's still something I'm working on as a writer, and I hope this blog helps me go further towards that goal
Above all, unless I'm really in a shitty mood, (and usually even if I am) I try to breathe humor into my posts, and try to keep it fun, because if I don't enjoy writing it, I doubt many will enjoy reading.
Well, until next time, Peace.
