Warning: blog wonketry follows…
The other day, ProBlogger Darren Rowse recommended a video by Tim Ferriss, the author of The 4 Hour Work Week, talking about how to be a successful blogger.
I know how already, but I get a kick out of stuff like this, and occasionally pick up a good tip.
So of course I watched it, or tried to.
I turned it off when Ferriss said something like, “Blogging is all about living and loving and laughing and learning.”
Hey, **** you, Tim, with your big book contract and speaking gigs and Princeton degree and more likely than not two-parent family with a dog and a house with a pool! What a typical Gen Y Dave Eggers messenger bag hemp wearing “I pretend to love tofu and those weird green soybeans cuz it gets me laid” emo bore. He probably uses bamboo toilet paper or something.
It ruined my whole day.
So: I was surfing around today and found my way here. Even if you don’t know any of the “players”, this will delight you.
(I’ve done Step 2 since the first day of nursery school and highly recommend it.)
This woman has no time for Ferris, who turns out to be an Elmer Gantry style operator, big time, just one wearing Urban Outfitters “retro” “ironic” “distressed” t-shirts.
Anyway, last month I recommended another post by this woman.
That’s it: I’m buying her damn book now, dammit.
