The Fourteen "Blog"mandments
It has come to my attention that there are now fourteen "blog"mandments, not twelve, as previously reported. "Blog"mandments, for the newcomers among you, are like commandments, except they are for "blogs." And they make you a better "blogger"! We usually include a hilarious picture of Moses with each "blog"mandment update, but we are just so tired. We're phoning it in. We're like a soulless automaton, or "blog"tomaton, as we call it in "blogging" circles. But don't let our ennui diminish all the value you can get from the "blog"mandments: 1. Simply "click" on a highlighted word or phrase to be sent to a "link." 2. The internet is full of information. Check it out. 3. Check your favorite "blog" often or you might miss something. 4. It's okay for friends to disagree! 5. Remember: Cyclopes is the plural of Cyclops. 6. Life is not always about "blogs"! 7. Ask yourself before "blogging": How would Webern "blog"? 8. Get some Webern! 9. Use the word "blog" to create new words containing the word "blog." Think of the Smurfs and you will know what to do. 10. Support the arts! 11. It takes all kinds. 12. The depiction of a vice does not imply endorsement on the part of the depicter. 13. People are complicated. 14. It's good to blow off some steam!
