Don’s recommendation of the day: Pointless Drivel

One of the best ways of not writing a blog post is to recommend someone else’s blog post. While this lacks some of the thrill of tinkering with your template – danger is, after all, kind of a rush – it has the advantage that your readers, if any, actually see what you’ve done. Spending hours on template hacking may run the risk of destroying your entire blog, but it runs an even higher risk of creating “improvements” that nobody notices. (OK, dear readers: look to the right and admire the fact that “Archives” and “Recent Posts” are now implemented as drop-down lists. My sidebar may still be incredibly long, but it’s shorter than it was. Worship me.)

So… here’s today’s recommendation: Read this post at Pointless Drivel – a consistently funny, well-written, and good-looking blog with even more stuff in its sidebar than mine has. Enjoy!

Thank you for the kind words my friend. Actually, all I do is write down what the voices in my head tell me to.

Hopefully they will continue to use their influence for good rather than evil.

Hey, Fab, I never said your blog wasn't evil. "Consistently funny, well-written, and good-looking", true - but all those are frequently aspects of the Devil's work.

Regards to the voices!

Thanks, Debbie. You can skip the noon sacrifice. (g)

Fab is almost certainly on the side of darkness, but it's easy to love him anyway.
