  1. Glad to now new content is on it’s way. I love reruns as much as anyone, but all those pop culture references to the Macarena and Friends are starting to feel a bit dated.

    • Yeah when I first started doing the blog I had to paint it on cave walls. Then tie a message to a pterodactyl’s leg to “Tweet” to people that it existed. Though mostly people just ran away before they could get the message.

  2. I’m particularly looking forward to “Everything You Know About Blogging is WRONG!” and also “Here We Go Again: What are the most common themes in literary fiction?”. They

    I’m a little scared by how prolific you seem to be, Rogue. I think you may have a problem…

  3. I’m amazed you can write them in advance.

    Your pterodactyls (Ptweets?) would have worked better with hashtags. Or hashptags.

    • The whole time the blog was in reruns I kept a list of possible topics and then I’d write one or two when I had the time. Or when an idea popped into my head. The scheduling is pretty easy with WordPress too.

      I should go find Seth MacFarlane’s email and go send the Ptweets joke in to use in “The Flintstones” reboot.

  4. *AHEM” I meant to say above that those 2 headings are particularly interesting to the likes of me. That’s what happens when I get interrupted by people who don’t realise I am involved in the heady business of commenting on someone’s blog.

  5. You over-productive bulldog you. I’m going to find an over-achiever blog award and make sure that it gets passed on to you with like fifteen requirements and an online meme.

    That’s quite a list! And the titles are pretty catchy too. I’m lucky if I get two posts scheduled in a month so the whole damn thing is impressive to me before I’ve even read any of them. In the words of Arnie, I’ll be back.
