I’m funny, right? I can be sort of witty when I try real hard. Example: I’ve had at least 5 people this year tell me that my Facebook status updates crack them up. When they are having a bad day, they just hop on over to the FB and find my latest update, and all their worries and troubles go away.
Somehow that doesn’t translate to everything. Twitter? I can’t do it. Some folks are hilarious on Twitter. I’ll sit there, going through my feed, and laugh and laugh. They pack a pretty powerfully punny punch (you like my alliterations?) in a few short words. Twitter’s like the Mitch Hedberg of social media. Or tweeters are the Mitch Hedbergs… you get my point.
When it comes to writing something longer, like *cough cough* a post on this blog, my funny bone breaks down, jumps out the window, gets run over by a car….. and I don’t really find it again until I hop onto Facebook. What’s up with that?
So my LIFE goal for the short term is to find a way to be funny all the time. I should start writing my blog posts in spurts. I’ll write 2-3 sentences at a time, take a break for an hour, and continue on like that. It might take hours and hours, but it could be worth it. I could be famous one day.
I think that the best blogs are the ones that are a little bit silly, a little funny. And whilst I know that, I don’t really transfer it over to my bloggo. As soon as I click “New Post”, I get all serious and stuff, trying to be meaningful. People have enough meaning in their real lives. They hop on the Internet to be entertained! Last I checked, INTERNET is an acronym for I Need To Enjoy, Right Now, Entertaining Things.
For today though, I must be a serious professional and mold the minds of today’s youths. Wish me luck.
