5 Reasons Why Blogging Is Better Than Sex (With Me)

Posted in Asides, Becoming a Better Blogger, Humor, Technology by engtech on February 16, 2007

NYC condom sexOr “Please Don’t Call the SPCA”.

  1. Reason Number One
    • Blogging: I can connect anonymously with thousands of strangers a day.
    • Sex: I can connect anonymously with thousands of strangers a day *IF* I move to New York City.
  2. Reason Number Two
    • Blogging: Technorati will show all the people who are linked to me and it doesn’t make me look like a big slut.
    • Sex: Six degrees of Paris Hilton.
  3. Reason Number Three
    • Blogging: I can get the cat involved without the horribly judging eyes of friends and strangers.
    • Sex: Fur is hard to clean.
  4. Reason Number Four
    • Blogging: Increased visibility means more page views and a larger audience.
    • Sex: Increased visibility means someone is going to call the cops.
  5. Reason Number Five
    • Blogging: Googlebot will crawl your pages quite often and share them with the world.
    • Sex: Googlebot never calls you back.

This would have been a great entry to my 5 Things contest.

    Pretty funny but I thought the bestiality joke was a little flat. An interesting comparison though :)

    Reason Number Six

    * Blogging: Reader feedback is appreciated.
    * Sex: Voyeur feedback is not appreciated (unless you [censored]).

    Hey engtech, check it out. The responder above my first response, sexy girl, is a porno site.

    Isn’t this spam? How did akismet miss this?

    @brent: I think that was a human generated link. Thanks for spotting it.

    New blog layout? I like it!

    Simplified more. Increased empty space / less busy.

    I’m trying to fight my impulses to make things more complicated than.

    “But I can create 15 different ways of viewing the content that would make things easier for users to access different things!”

    but no one else would know how to use them ET.

    I’m sort of confused by the navigation around the blog. It takes some getting used to. I’m more into a KISS philosophy myself.

    To each his own. It’s pretty.

  12. engtech said, on February 18, 2007 at 6:19 am

    @brent: could you be more specific? I keep on making my navigation too complicated and I could use some pointers on how to simplify.

  13. Brent said, on February 18, 2007 at 8:52 am

    Remember when I asked you for some pointers on CSS and making a tag cloud,and you basically told me to figure it out on my own?

    I sure do.

    Very funny, bro. 6 degrees of Paris Hilton, indeed.

    “Sex: Six degrees of Paris Hilton”

    …and on this day I declare myself celibate. That’s just too terrifying to comprehend.

    also, I think I can solve one of your problems: shave the cat.

    @brent: uh, that’s a REALLY interesting interpretation of this conversation: http://engtech.wordpress.com/2007/02/04/best-of-feeds-62-links-design-humor-funny-programming-tips-howto/#comment-17614

    You catch more flies with honey, Brent.
