Commas are your friend. Not just your friend, but the friend who stops you from cannibalism. And don't we all need one of those?

Lets eat, Steve.

Lets eat Steve.

Lets, eat, Steve.

Okay, the last one makes no sense, but eh. It gets points for extra comma-ness.

K: You're not on my troll radar, get over yourself. :P

I'll keep the forum posts at a nearly 1:1 ratio with EXP points. That'll force me to write more, better and faster, so's I can continue to post interesting and informative (and only a little bit mocking) posts on threads.

E: Damn you Quillsy! And damn you people asking coding questions. Lets try for a 2:1 ratio

E: FUCK IT. 5:1

There will be some swearing. There will be some violence. There will be graphic descriptions of gruesome things. There will be black humour.

Thoughts on blogging? on 7/28/2017 9:31:14 AM

The amount of blogs, in relation to the amount that make money, is fairly dismal.Ditto webcomics, youtube, streams, twitchplays, etc. You might go from zero to decent audience numbers in months, or never. So there's the downside.

Speaking with people who do have a social media presence, and use software to track the numbers, clickthroughs and where the traffic comes from, your biggest hope is to be interesting, amusing and come to the notice of someone with a solid audience. Think of a Colbert bump, or a Penny Arcade wang. If that happens, you've got a solid boost.

So, if you make blogposts about gardening, be prepared to toil forever. Gardening Wars, an AU of Transformers, and you may get lucky. As for what to do, and how to write, think of your own favourite authors, and see how different their styles are. Whatever works, works.

http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com.au - worked and wrote for months, I believe, before achieving anything like fame. And yet, is fairly well-known, because of some eminently relateable posts and images ("Do all the things?")

http://www.27bslash6.com - Ditto. MSPaint pic of a 7 legged spider? Fame and fortune!

Enyclopedia Britannica *5 - tinder, and something to shit with

Hitchhiker's guide collection - to read while shitting

The preicse name eludes me, but along the lines of "Speculative history of the future", to give me the shits. It is by far, the most useful book of my life. I have used it to:

  • Hold up a wobble table
  • An extra few cm for a monitor stand
  • Drilled a hole through it, attached a bit of 2-by-4 and dowel, and plugged a catflap
  • As proof positive, that nobody is as dumb who calls themselves smart, without a smattering of self-insight

Year 1 would be the building, getting proficient at farming, fishing and hunting year. Ditto 2.

If by 3, Im not dead, huzzah! Now, madness sets in. The cult arises, dark shadows move.

6, all the chickens are named Bruce, and hold a parliament.

7, reasoning that more chicken = more votes, I eat all the chickens.

8, still pretty full from Chickenocalypse.

9, the clouds of feather and death dissipates, and time to wander off.

My apologies if being critical of your actions hurt your feelings. I was raised to treat people like adults, not coddle in wool and nice words.

Simple truth, is you like the attention, good and bad, and you enjoy having people fawn over you. Ere might be something of real skill and talent under that empty praise, but I cant see it through clouds of, to me, meaningless drivel.

Cheerio ducky, remember that introspection and honest assessment arent swearwords, but useful tools to any writer. Or mod. Especially meh ones.

As has been mentioned, you provide a valuable service, keeping the WC clean of WC. Less valuable, is the martyrism, but hey. It's something.

Not opinion, kinda objectively true. Feefees were hurt, there was flailing. And now, a thread with the express purpose of worshipping someone who, can occasionally click a button, delete a thread or game. Not hard, or deserving of respect.

So am I. It was, whiny, passive agressive, whiny, twatwaffles, and whiny. Perfect CYS drama over nothing.

Sounds entralling. Nothing says good fun like Vikings. Food, drinking, women, songs, honest merchants honest! They have it all, even bluetooth.

Cards Against Humanity on 7/23/2016 1:53:16 AM

Feefees. Feefees get hurthurt and sooksook. And other childish words, cause when you're dealing with a child, need to use appropriate language.

Dish, but not take. And even the dishing is a measly meal, of wormy statements that bore.

Thanks Steve, I forgot to highlight, underscore and bold this point, and naturally it got missed.

Nothing, would be worse, it's true. But two very mediocre games, are hardly a tickertape parade of recommendation either.
