Am I offensive??? YES. Am I brutally honest? Yes. But that’s why you read this blog. I don’t purposely try to shock. It’s just how I roll. Honesty, humor and in yo’ face with some shit. That’s it. That’s t-blawg. What am I babbling on about? I’ll tell you my loyal t-blawgians. WordPress is my blog publisher and WordPress has this feature called “Freshly Pressed”. Every single day they pretty much go around and pick and feature blog posts from bloggers on their homepage that they like. That the general public would like according to them. They have to be generic. They have to be nice. They have to have interaction from other down the middle bloggers. Basically, they have to be average. Well, as a reader of t-blawg you know that this blog is anything but average. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that it will never be “Freshly Pressed”. And you know what? I’m cool with that. I’ve said before that I write this blog to share my stories and opinions to entertain. To make you laugh, think and feel. So this blog is far from generic. Far from “Freshly Pressed”.
Is a t-blawg post even capable of being “Freshly Pressed”? I don’t know. I mean picture my “I Respect The Bro Code and You Should Too” post being featured up there next to blog posts such as these recently “Freshly Pressed” posts: “Pumpkin luminaries”; “Being a ‘Gleek’”; “Why I’m Anti-iPhone Because They are Anti-Google Voice”; and “The Joy of Baking Bacon and Cheese Biscuits”. Are you fucking serious?! Can you get anymore “run-of-the-fucking-mill” than this bullshit? I’m not knocking the bloggers for writing stuff like this because that is 99% of the blogs out there. It’s why they started blogging. To voice their opinion about things. To find an audience that can relate. Sure they’re not trying to be boring but they figure they have to be to get a following. Play it safe. To get “Freshly Pressed”. Not me. Not T. Not now. Not ever. Instead, I’m knocking WordPress for featuring shit like this. For taking the easy road. Nobody in history that has become something has ever taken the easy road. Generic=Cautious. Cautious=Lame. Innovation=Awesomeness. Awesomeness=T. You will find me in the latter obviously blazing trails and writing fucking fire every damn Monday!!!
Whether this stance means never being “Freshly Pressed” and not reaching a larger audience because of it, well then so be it. I’m no sellout. The people who read this blog read it because I’m everything opposite of those featured in “Freshly Pressed”. And there are now a lot of people reading this blog. A LOT. I can proudly say t-blawg is opposite of every damn blog out there. Because t-blawg is the anti-blog. The People’s Blog. I dare you to find another one like this. You won’t. Because there is only one me. And I like it that way. Go through my archive of blog posts. I can guaran-damn-T (pun intended) that you will find at least 1 post that made you laugh your ass off at work. At least 1 post that you tweeted. At least 1 post that you posted on facebook for your friends to see. At least 1 post that you emailed the link out to. At least 1 post that pissed you the fuck off. At least 1 post that made you subscribe. At least 1 post that made you comment. At least 1 post that made you say to yourself “Wow. He’s nuts but so right on with this one.” And that’s enough for me. So I say to you WordPress….You can freshly press this. And yes, I am pointing to my crotch right now in case you were wondering. t-blawg yo. And don’t ever forget it.
Until next time. Always take it there.
