Right so where HAS all my shit gone and why haven't I posted anything for weeks and weeks? Well my lovlies ~ in short it was all gettin much here so I split it all up to three sites - then i neglected ol sink the rock because of having two new sites to play with - which are:
The Crescent - has moved to http://www.CelebrityGossipPodcast.com so it has it's own proper site and isn't getting in the way of my other bullshit and making me look bad when the 6 latest posts are not from my blog. Also I hilariously lost almost all of our four thousand subscribers by moving teh feed address - lucky for us we couldn't give a shit and we just pretend we still have loads of subscribers so our vanity does not suffer and we can keep showing off like nobodies business...
Dear Janit - Janit now has her own site as well where I am rewriting the letters one by one so they don't have spelling mistakes and the grammar is ever so slightly a little bit less wrong. Every letter is illustrated by my sister now as well so it actually looks liek a proper blog - MEOW
Sink the Rock - remains the worst blog ever with no clear direction or coherent focus, low readership, questionable taste and less than frequent updates.
...well happy birthday to me really - seeing as it is MY birthday not Sink the Rock's birthday.
I love birthdays don't you? I think I prefer them when they are not mine though - I'm not being a misery > promise. In fact thinking about it my absolute favourite bit of birthdays is when your colleague knows that you absolutely fucking love it when all the people who sit near you in the office come and stand around your desk and make you eat some fucking cake so he goes and buys some cake and tells everyone so come and stand round your desk. Dave isn't in today though and no one has mentioned the birthday thing so I might get away with it > but of course - facebook exists - so maybemaybeMAYBE someone else will have taken up the mantle in his absence omgomgomg fingers crossed > I can hardly contain my apathy.
The other thing about birthdays is you get to go out, get really drunk and make everyone fully aware that you are the centre of attention - but I do that about three nights out of seven anyway - so not really a super-killer USP.
ho hum what a miserable cunt - ho ho > it's just for fun you know - not real misery.
ANYWAY > in other more important news I am ranked 7th out of thirty million on Google for worst blog ever - because of the plumber's tap worst blog ever post and me consequently writing worst blog ever in the site title - I wonder if i can get to number fucking one with some links? I don't think the competition is very hot - if you link to my blog in your blogroll or whatever and wanted to help me in my vanity project - you could put 'worst blog ever' in the text or title of the link - nice one > oh > that would be good and nice birthday present from you - thanks everso x
...for ease - here is the code:
<a href="http://www.sinktherock.org" title="worst blog ever - Sink the Rock">Sink the Rock - worst blog ever</a>
P.S. thanks for all the social media birthday wishes
so, a couple of weeks back i had a looksy at my blog > it's shit. It's the plumbers tap what always drips ~ I'm (by all accounts) a 'web professional' so it is daft that my personal blog should be a such a limp cock, it's rubbish, it's the worst blog ever, it's full of links to god knows what, bollocky, irrelevant secondary content, voting buttons and little adverts for blog directories that i signed up to in some vain and vain attempt to drive people to read my shit by following some tosser's 10 things to do to get your blog noticed. It's got stupid widgets that make people's browsers hang and crash and it's still run on Drupal 5, eighteen months after the upgrade was released.
Pumped after inspiration from think visibility > and reading this post from Tom Smith's the other blog, coupled with the shock of over a hundred visitors in one day (oh em gee) instead of the usual eight or so, I set to it. Tom asked himself what makes a good blog >
"I think that the best blogs are ones that, like a film, or like an elevator pitch for a film, tells a story or at least starts a story, or even better an Impossible Quest. A memorable blog has built into its concept a trajectory - it’s going somewhere!"
Well that's me fucked then > So then i did some extensive research on the first result on page 1 of google search for 'what makes a great blog' and started reading this post but it was about writing and engaging with the audience and i got bored and went and did something else for a bit.
Then i thought fuck it > Sink the Rock is just a collection of shit, a record of stuff, it doesn't sell anything or even need to be read. It's mine, it's my journal, it's my record, it's my football and I'm going home.
So I re-un-designed it > I upgraded it to Drupal 6 (at last), got rid of all the voting and ranking bullshit and widgets and extra shite popped in a vanity block for most read content and bob's yer pervy uncle this is what is left.
ah sure would 'preciate some comments from y'all... > too stark? - anything i should add? or take away?
