How Blogging is Just Like Eating Frosted Mini-Wheats
Blogging is a lot of things.
It is communicating with your invisible, imaginary peers. It is expressing yourself to an emotionless, un-feeling, un-caring computer screen. It is an outlet for feelings and thoughts and ideas that your invisible, imaginary peers can stare at through their emotionless, un-feeling, un-caring computer screen.
It is also just like eating Frosted Mini-Wheats.
Frosted Mini-Wheats come in a box. So does your computer, which eventually runs software that will allow you to get onto the web and post entries in your blog.
Frosted Mini-Wheats are sweet. So is the taste of revenge as you write entries about all your ex’es, and their habits and hairy backs and horrific manners and annoying personality quirks.
Frosted Mini-Wheats come in numerous, tiny cubes of tightly-packed wheat. Your blog contains numerous entries, tightly-packed together with text so small I need a microscope to read it.
Frosted Mini-Wheats can be purchased in a store, just like you can be bought by those linking to your blog. Mini-Wheats are also fragile, like your ego when you don’t get enough comments on a post. Mini-Wheats are a second-tier cereal, which has yet to really take the world by storm…but the manufacturer continues to make those commercials with the animated CGI talking Frosted Mini-Wheat…much like how your blog isn’t the most popular, yet you continue to sell it as the most popular around.
Frosted Mini-Wheats are white, brown, light and dark. Just like you.
Let this be a lesson to you all.
