Blogging about Blogging, Part 3

Even I realize how painful this topic is getting, but I feel the need to finish what I originally set out to do. When we last met, I was extolling the virtues of the blogs I read (or try to) every day. My next task is try to emulate them so I can get more readers. After analyzing why I like them, there are a few take home messages:
  • I need to be more witty. (This could take some work.)
  • I need to be more introspective. (Is it even possible I could be more introspective? Doubtful)
  • I need to convince Twin Six to produce cool cycling garb with my blog name on it.
  • I need to take more interesting photos, preferably by moving someplace with better aesthetics than Lansing, Michigan, as opposed to trying to actually obtain any skills in this arena. (Unlikely, since I can't seem to move away from my mommy)
  • I need to become more hardcore, train a lot and enter epic races that stretch my skills to (or past) their limit. (This may be possible?)
  • I need to become good at racing. (Likelihood questionable)
  • According to some stellar advice Danielle left on my blog, I should try to include keywords that seem to make her site popular. The ones I'm most likely to actually use are "poop" and "ass."

So, it looks like I've got my work cut out for me. I think I'll start by going to Traverse City this weekend and taking some more interesting photos. (BTW, the photo at the top of this post is the face G-dog makes when I start packing.) In conclusion, I'd like to say poop and ass.
