Others Work So That We Don’t Have To

Here’s the deal — Jill Monroe is supposed to step in and return this blog to a higher level of discourse (education of youth and stuff). Due to browser issues (use Firefox, refresh cache, save the world from our rants, not that we’re offering advice or anything), she’s unable to get to our reliable system. Until she does, you’re stuck with us. Ha!

But we are lazy and without shame. For instance, we could discuss the issues of the pre-published. If we understood what that term meant. Monica Jackson, whom we never met but is a member of the WordPress cult (Matt’s way too cute and way too young), has her own definition and offers a few bits of advice. This is the beauty of blogs: being incestuous means never having to rant in the dark.

Why are you entering all these contests if they are going to discourage you? They cost money and they are crap—yes, I said it, CRAP! They are only worth a damn thing if you win and that’s a crapshoot. These are the SAME people who vote for Scott over Nadia on American Idol.

    No, it’s just me. Jill runs things when I dare to take a vacation to places without Internet access. And she’ll throw up a post every now and then (hence the category “Jill’s First Blog”). I promise that you can tell the difference. She’s nice and she uses spell check. She’s also really funny.

    hmmm….if you say so. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine.

    So does this mean you’re off to an exotic locale? Wendi

    Only if one considers Culver City to be exotic. This is just a drive-by by Jill…provided she can get into the system. I’ll still be around to irritate people for a long while.

    Heading over to your place!
