I blog, therefore I am a donut!

Ok. A discussion came up over the weekend... 'Why do you blog, jimm?"
Huh!? For a moment I thought they expected an intelligent answer, then I realized that they really did know who they were talking to and an intelligent, thoughtful answer was the last thing in a response that they expected.

"Cause I like to." I said. "It's your turn to buy a beer."
"That's not much of an answer."
"That wasn't much of a question."
"But who reads your shit, anyways?"
"It doesn't matter. I wrote shit for years on little yellow tablets with a #2 pencil, and no one read that shit, either. I don't care. I like to. 'n' it's still your turn to buy a beer."
And that's the truth. I don't care. Not really. The accrued benefit is what I am all about.

What Benefit! Ha! Take this! and stick it in your MicroSoft!!

The deal is.... for no money down... without a home computer.... without a clue...for no reason whatsoever&stuff... I can connect to people I like, or think I like, or like the things I like, and likely or not, it seems that a few of them like me. Whoa! go figure that one! But I have no concern about comments, or reads or hits or Technoratzi..... I just like doing this. Done&Done!

....So.... there it is! And along those lines.... of doing what I want, just because I want to.... I am posting a link-ee to Gumbo Pages
and Chuck's Weblog, Looka. It was the first blog I ever visited, about three years or so ago. I just wanted a seafood gumbo recipe and what I found was..." cocktails, food, New Orleans culture and music." I think his description is mild. There is fantastic food porn photos, cocktail photos, the continuing adventures of Chuck&Wes....and lotza good music revenues and information and much, much more! I never comment at Looka.... I don't think Chuck cares one way or another, either. He is just doing what he likes..... and has been doing it for ten years. Now in bloggy years, that is like, wowsers, forever.
So, I don't care who reads me.... but my Pick of the Day is Chuck at Gumbo Pages.

Thanks for blogging! I appreciate it so just tell them you are doing it for me if doing it for yourself isn't satisfying enough.

I too am happy that you blog.

Hmmmm... too bad I didn't meet you 20 years ago! A man that loves donuts and peanut butter is right up my alley. (so to speak :O )

Humans need to communicate.

So do dogs, squirrels, mosquitoes, whores, rent boys and my bowels.

Life is wired to communicate with other life. So we blog.

I'm glad you do too. I feel much the same but you have a much better way with being funny. That counts for a lot.
