I’m not inspired to write anything funny right now.
I’m feeling a little under the weather and my last post was such a buzzkill, so nothing is really funny to me at this moment.
I’ve decided that I’m going to resist the urge to revamp this ridiculous blog though.
I considered turning it into something that people apparently really want to read instead of a bunch of tripe about what I’m wanting to write.
I’ve not posted anything for a few days and I’m still getting more views on my most recent sad post each day than I have on any of my usual type posts ever.
Ever by a long shot!
I don’t want to embarrass myself by admitting how few views I actually get on my blog, but my best day before last week was exactly 200 views.
This most recent post had a best day of nearly 1700 views for that one post alone.
I didn’t do anything differently, but a couple of friends did share it on Facebook (which is rare) and it took off from there. I guess that’s the power of social media.
It’s been viewed almost 2500 times according to this WP stat site, and that’s a lot for one of my posts, even if it isn’t when compared to others out there.
In three days, it’s been viewed 10 times more than the next closest post I’ve written.
So, thanks to those of you who shared that post with others. I ended up reading it a couple more times myself, and I guess it was a nice perspective that most normal police officers wouldn’t probably share, even if they thought the same thing. It’s not manly to show feelings or something like that.
So I was thinking, briefly, that if I just wanted to get some traffic to my blog and not worry about writing what I felt like writing, I could share tales about mocking the homeless and the elderly, kicking puppies or drowning kittens.
I mean everyone likes the elderly!
Yeah, the one on the left is the grandma who was a dick one night.
Oh the uproar there’d be in the blogosphere were it learned that somebody was posting about dead kittens!
Single women everywhere would stop checking for nonexistent messages in their online dating site inboxes to read about dead kittens on my site while snuggling their own Mr. Sprinkles and having a good cry.
My views would be through the roof!
Alas, that’s not me; I don’t want to write about kittens,
even especially dead kittens.
So, this post is more of a getting myself back into the swing of things number. I hope to be myself again soon.
I did try to drum up some funny content by leaving the house.
I even took the kids to the zoo. We made the in-laws tag along to ease our burden. Oh, and we love them and enjoy their company, too, of course.
Uh, where’s G$? We said that alot!
There he is! He was off on a bench cramming raisins down his throat.
I thought surely one of the kids would bless me with something funny that I’d just have to write about, right?
Instead, we just had a nice time with the animals.
See. We saw some elephants.
And some ass.
And more ass.
And many other critters too.
This fella or dame, maybe, is a capybara. It’s like a giant guinea pig or something.
The new seal exhibit was pretty cool, too.
Then we colored some eggs and called it a day.
