Happy Blogiversary to Me

12 years now. Nothing new to say. I didn’t get any official notification from WordPress that it is today, but my Facebook memories told me that last year was 10 years on WordPress. My math is good enough to theorize that today would now be 11 years. 11 years of babbling about nothing. Before that…

What to Write Right Now?

I have not written anything new here since Sunday. It’s hard for me to think about doing a new post now. Anything I have to say seems petty and insignificant right now. I had a post written after this sentence and it seemed whiny and petty compared to what’s going on in the world right…

Setting: The North Pole, Santa’s Compound It is going to be hard to infiltrate Santa’s bunker. His intelligence department is one of the best in the world. They see you when you’re sleeping. They know when you’re awake. Trying to take down Santa could be a big mistake. Luckily, the Happy Holiday Alliance had a…

Tater Talks Blogging

I will begin this by saying that I am a nobody when it comes to blogging. I have no following. I feel like it is a success if I average 20 views a day. That is peanuts when it comes to blogging and I don’t see it ever changing. So, what I’m saying is that…

Blogging Resolutions

I know it’s not the beginning of a new year or anything, but as I thought about posting this morning and had nothing pop in my head, I decided I should probably reconsider how I do this. So, the following are some things I will try to do to make the blog better(it can’t get…
