introduction to blogs for beginners

Blogs are coloring books you can scribble words and dribble paint into.

Blogs are good for you, and they taste rather like chicken.

Blogs are big scary monsters that bite corporate ankles.

Blogs are what naughty people do in their pajamas.

Blogs are ugly-worded, mini-web sites, of very little significance or consequence, if you're 109 years old.

Blogs fly around at night, like owls and bats. This is an owl blog.

Beginning bloggers should, most of you, indeed almost all of you, please stop.

Calm down, please, and patiently reconsider what you're doing and the level of dedication required to be a blogger, and quit. Delete your blog.

You either have nothing to say, you can't write well enough, or you are articulate and poetic, but you're just boring or insane.

Take up roof gardening or hand stamp collecting if you must have a little hobby.

Blogs are

Blogs can

Blogs will
