The Ultimate Blog Post


Recommended Posts

Found this on Wired via digg: The Ultimate Blog Post.


I can't decide what was funnier, the "tips" on making your blog more popular:


Creating your own blog is about as easy as creating your own urine, and you're about as likely to find someone else interested in it. One popular technique for building readership is to send e-mail to more well-trafficked blogs offering to exchange links with them. One popular response from those blogs is to laugh derisively and hit the Delete button.


Another approach for advertising your blog is to mention it as much as possible in conversation; you'd be surprised how many people are fascinated to hear you have a blog and want to know more, especially if you were expecting the number to be greater than zero.


Or his "sample entries" from some popular blogs:


Boing Boing: Crocheted replica of subway map cracks DRM on collection of old video games.


FARK: Drunk frat boy in Florida has sex with underage donkey, sues Strong Bad for negligence. Still no cure for overused in-jokes.


Slashdot: AMD, SCO patent MP3 over TCP/IP, sue ATI, EA. Microsoft probably responsible somehow.


Joystiq: Will Wright to design first-person Warcraft shooter for the Wii. Jack Thompson responds with aneurysm.

That's Lore Sjoberg (sp?) he's had some really funny columns and a blog. Here's my favorite column:


WOW: The Text Adventure


> Go NE


A small ramshackle house sits atop a hill, apparently abandoned. At the foot of the hill is a large field. The field is swarming with kobolds, their tails swinging seductively in the breeze.


> Kill kobold


You kill a kobold. You get a kobold tail.


> Kill kobold


You kill a kobold. You get two pieces of silver and a kobold tail.


> Kill kobold


You kill a kobold. You get three pieces of silver and an apple.
