Walk A Mile In Another Person’s Shoes

This is a poem that I called “Why Must It be This Way?” and in writing it I tried to imagine what it must be like for an innocent girl on her first date, how she could react and hopefully how she in the end she should react. Perhaps my perspective of this is tarnished ever since I became the father of a daughter even though I do not recall ever acting in such an uncouth manner. It sort of brings to mind the Joe South classic made famous by Elvis Presley, “Walk A Mile In My Shoes”. Perhaps if we could physically do that before making rash judgments that lead to one person hurting another, the world could start to become a better place. Anyway without further ado I present to you Why Must It be This Way? When you asked me out that day I thought it too…

The Meaning Of Life In A Poem

A blog for me is more than just a means to make money, it is also a way of expressing myself. One of the ways that I may choose to do this is through poetry. Don’t get me wrong as I am not a poet in any manner of shape and form, but I do like to dabble in it every now and again. I don’t write many poems and I reckon the reason for that is because I need to be inspired and that doesn’t happen all that often. When it does happen though the words seem to flow fairly easily and I am usually fairly pleased with the results. This is one of those times. I call this one. The Awakening As I lie on the ground Gazing at the myriad of stars Thinking how insignificant I am What am I, but a mote in the universe? I…

Man’s Struggle To Control His Urges

My last post got me to thinking that I should start up another category where I could put all my ‘fun’ posts into. I’ve decided to call the category Just For Fun and the sky is the limit in regards to what I actually post into it. Now I know I am not a particularly good poet, nowhere near the standards of Kikolani or Inquest, but I still continue to churn out a piece every now and again and some of them may be quite crass, like the one you are about to read. Before you go onto read it a word of warning, some community blog sites actually deleted it because they said it offended some of their readers. I suppose that is one of the advantages of hosting your own blog, that you can post anything your little heart desires and take whatever lumps comes your way. Personally,…

Google Sucks And How Inspiration Can Help Your Blog

Inspiration can come in many forms, sometimes it can be because of positive things that happen to you and on other occasions it can be because of something more on the negative side. Take this little poem for example. It will probably never make it into a book of poems and that does not bother me at all because I had fun writing it. It all came about on that dreadful day not so long ago when Google decided to strip my PR4 blogs of their ranking and reduce them to PR0. I was not impressed, ergo the birth of this poem. Google’s like a woman As fickle as can be Use all The SEO you can She’ll crush you like a flea You read all the SEO tactics You apply it to your blog Then those Google pricks Give your Rankings a flog Women like to change the rules…

The F Word, When No Other Word Will Do

Image via Wikipedia You may have recalled from one of my previous posts how I said that hosting your own blogs gave you more freedom? Well this is completely true in regards to censorship. I’ve had many posts/articles deleted from community sites because there were some there who were offended or even found it distasteful. Heck I even had the word SEX censored to S*X! Nope I am not kidding, now you tell me how anyone could find sex distasteful? Hosting my own blogs gives me the opportunity to post what I want, but even so I would not post anything that I felt my readers would find ‘distasteful’ as I want to entice people to read my posts not scare them away! So even though I am able to use the ever popular F word, a word that Gordon Ramsay has made famous, I choose not too, as I…

Excuse me young man, what is a blog So many talk of it I am simply agog Is it something that I can eat Please tell me, that would be a treat No worries pop, it’s a diary of sorts Don’t get so stressed, don’t eat your shorts People record their thoughts and dreams Businesses may even take it to the extreme But why do they waste their time I’m sure they do not make a dime Why would you waste so much effort I am sure they sell themselves short Are you kidding me you silly old coot People like ProBlogger are makin the loot They make so much they quit their jobs They work from home to make a bob That makes no sense I am bemused Even more than that I am confused How can a blog make you money That’s like believing in the Easter Bunny…
