The Lead Balloon Of Blog Posts
The minute I hit the "publish" button on yesterday's post, I thought, "This isn't very good." My cute little request for audience participation even prompted one reader to write, "Sal, I think it's time for you to take a walk and get some air."
I don't think the reader's comment was mean-spirited, but it did help precipitate the already bad feelings I had with the post. It's not easy doing this everyday. EVERYDAY! The ideas don't always come. For instance, what I really wanted to post yesterday was a story about this woman in my neighborhood who sells two dollar sweaters. (See?)
As it turns out many of you submitted entries, so the response made me feel a little better.
As for the all of the musical rip-offs/homages suggested, there are many to sift through, but I think I can piece together something worthwhile.
Thanks to everyone.
And apologies, if an occasional post is not quite up to snuff. You should see what I don't publish.
