Don’t get me wrong, the free pickles are great, but there’s a much more important reason I created this blog.
What? You didn’t get free pickles when you signed up for a blog? I don’t know what to tell ya. Maybe it was a November promotion because someone added a few extra zeros to the WordPress company’s weekly pickle order as a joke and the CEO was tired of maneuvering around cases of pickles in his office just so he could ask his assistant for a cup of coffee, a crueler and the MP3 of Steve Jobs’ unabridged biography as narrated by Ashton Kutcher … I don’t know. Anyway, that’s not important right now.
What is important is the reason I, who already maintains http://www.mattwritesanything.com, decided to create another vanity project/blog dedicated wholly to my favorite subject — floppy eared puppies!
Just kidding. My favorite subject is you. Don’t get upset. Look, I’m sorry. It was a joke. I didn’t mean it about the puppies. Of course you’re my number one favorite subject followed at a very, very great distance by floppy eared puppies.
The way I see it, like the Roman Coliseum or The Christian Church, WordPress will be around for a long time after I’m gone. Sure, it may be in shambles and a mere shadow of its former self, but I’m certain it will stand long after I’ve fallen for the last time.
So, without anyone to pay my hosting fees for http://www.mattwritesanything.com or my domain name renewal registration fees, WordPress.com is vital.
What’s that? Why do I care if my blog stays up after I’m dead? And If I really cared about longevity, wouldn’t I have chosen one of Google’s platforms?
Sigh. You couldn’t have said all this a few hours ago?
