It’s always a pleasure to get something unexpected in your email. Today, the 61st edition of the DNRC newsletter was released to me, and I must say, it was good. Along with all the other fun stuff that comes with it, I found that Scott Adams, the creator of my role-model and hero, Dogbert, has now started his own blog. You’ll see that I’ve taken the chance to add it to my blog role. Although I don’t personally know Scott Adams, his quotes, such as this one, make me feel as if he was my crazy uncle that no one liked me hanging around, but I did it anyway so I could learn how to make armpit noises and tell fart jokes.
People who are trying to decide whether to create a blog or not go through a
thought process much like this:
- The world sure needs more of ME.
- Maybe IÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ll shout more often so that people nearby can experience the joy of
knowing my thoughts.
- No, wait, shouting looks too crazy.
- I know ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢â¬Å IÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ll write down my daily thoughts and badger people to read them.
- If only there was a description for this process that doesnÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢t involve the words egomaniac or unnecessary.
- What? ItÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢s called a blog? IÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢m there!
The bloggerÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢s philosophy goes something like this:
Everything that I think about is more fascinating than the crap in your head.
It’s statements like those that make me smile that sort of evil smile you get by smashing a kid’s ice cream cone into his face so he’ll remember you for the rest of his life.
