Sudden Inspiration

10 02 2011

Well, I didn’t get much of a response following my last post, but honestly, I wasn’t really expecting anything. So don’t worry, I’m not mad at you, Internet. If you didn’t read my last post (It’s literally right below this one. Scroll down, you lazy bastard), I basically admitted that I have no idea what to write about anymore. But then I realized something. When I started this blog, I didn’t plan for it to be about anything specific. I didn’t just want to write movie reviews, or lists of inappropriate children’s programs, or recipes for the best apple pie you’ve ever shoved down your face.

This pie tastes like Elton John singing in your mouth and then slapping you for thinking you deserve it.

Right from the start, I had no idea what I wanted to write about. My writer’s block was nothing new. Hell, I only started this blog because some friends of mine started some of their very own. So I got to thinking, “If I want to have articles with random subject matter and a constant source of such matter, where should I look?” And it hit me. The answer had been right in front of my face the whole time, in the form of my second-most-visited website: StumbleUpon. (The first was facebook, if you couldn’t figure that out.)

So from now on, I’ll get my inspiration by Stumbling. I’ve already got something in mind for my next post, so it should be up in the next few days. I’ll still take requests or suggestions from anybody out there who has them, so feel free to send ’em my way.

You stay classy, Interwebz.

Twitter? TWITTER!? Twitter.

Sooooo, I haven’t written anything on here in what some might call “a long time”. I can’t promise that this will change much anytime soon. However, for no discernible reason, I’ve made a Twitter account for this blog. Don’t get your hopes up; I don’t write much on there, either. But hey, if I get enough followers on the ole Twitbox, maybe I’ll feel obligated to start writing again. You can find me here: http://twitter.com/#!/T_O_B_Tweets. If you’ve got any ideas for interesting articles, or for horribly offensive articles, or for articles that don’t really make any sense, send ’em my way, either here or on Twitter. If I’m bored enough, I just might turn your idea into a poor excuse for literature.

fail whale

Though this is just as likely.

So yeah, follow me, talk to me, give me some ideas. It’s not like I have anything better to do, people.

Before I put up my next post, I’d like to go ahead and say that, if anybody has anything they’d like to read about, learn more about, or just hear my opinion…..about, I’m open to suggestion. Wink, wink. Seriously though, if you have any ideas, let me know, and there’s a good chance I’ll write about it. I don’t really have any morals, and nothing is off limits. Well, almost nothing. I’m on the fence about Macho Man Randy Savage. I trusted him and he hurt me and I’m not sure if I can forgive him for it.

He knows what he did.

So, if you’ve got any ideas, either leave a comment on this post, or email me at thatoneblogger@gmail.com. NOT thatoneblog@gmail.com. That’s someone else. I don’t know who. You can do it anonymously or, if you give me your name, I’ll give you credit for your idea. And don’t think this means I’ve run out of ideas myself. I’ve still got, like, one. Yeah.





The Return

16 05 2010

Once upon a time, I made the decision to start a blog. So I did. Because I’m not the kind of guy who says he’ll do something and then not do that something that he said he’d do. But, apparently, I am the kind of guy that’ll give up on that something after a brief and half-assed stint. For that, I apologize. I won’t try to excuse my disappearance with stories of job opportunities, travels abroad, or bastard offspring that needed to be taken care of, since, well, none of those things happened. I just got lazy. But fear not! I’ma give this a try…again. Maybe this time around, I’ll be able to dish out more than one post before I pull a Chappelle and disappear to Africa. You know, metaphorically.

Aww, I can’t stay mad at him.

Anyways, stick around. You never know what I might write about. Hell, I don’t even know what I might write about. But I’ll think of something.

Hello and welcome to That One Blog. When several friends of mine decided to start making their own blogs, I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon. I mean, really, what says college better than a big ol’ helping of peer pressure?  So I took a walk down some of the back alleys of the Internet, found the cheapest domain in the blogosphere’s seedy underbelly, and -a few bad decisions later- this blog was born. At first, I couldn’t stand the sight of him, but damned if the little bastard hasn’t grown on me. Guess I’ll stick around for a while, but don’t expect to see me at any recitals. No blog of mine plays viola…..

You may be wondering why I went with such an ambiguous and impersonal title as “That One Blog”. Well, I’ll tell you why. I’ll tell you, because I’m not the sort that would leave you to wonder. I’ll tell you, because, when faced with a simple inquiry, I wouldn’t simply dodge the question by changing the subject or rambling on without any regard to what you wanted to know in the first place. I’m just not that kind of guy. If that’s the kind of guy you’re looking for, you’d be better off looking somewhere else. Not here. Now, where were we? Oh, right, you wanted to know why this blog is titled as it is.

Enjoy.
