Putting up posters, figuring out what the light switches do …

Nov 06

So I’m still poking around with this blog.

As you can see from the front page spam, I’ve moved most of my old Starbucks content here, so I won’t lose those sweet unmonetized search result clicks. I plan to update the content and add more, maybe drink reviews, stuff from other coffee joints, stuff like that. If I didn’t have a day job I’d totally be an obsessive coffee reviewer.

But I’m also planning to use this to replace my old LiveJournal blog, which I’ve had for roughly a hundred million years. Way better interface, much more up to date, my own domain name, not owned by The Russians … what’s not to like?

That means I face the hardest question facing any person with a keyboard and an internet: what the hell do I write? Generally I look at my life and say, “pretty much nobody but me gives a crap about any of this.” But on the other hand, the internet is made of things nobody but the writer gives a crap about*.

Let me know what you think — and by “you” I mostly mean “the friends I will pester to look at my shiny new blog”, since the non-coffee stuff hasn’t had a chance to build any real traffic. What should I write about? Does this theme look nice, or does it smell like Ikea? What does the peach symbolize in “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”? Does my ass look fat in these jeans? Who does your hair? What will I do if my cat figures out he’ll never actually catch the laser dot?

    You should totally write about this kick ass show you’re working on.

      Ha ha, I should, shouldn’t I? But I wouldn’t want to spoil anything …
