SYLG’s 3,000th Post!

By Wyatt Earp | June 12, 2008

Unfortunately, this post will probably as droll as the first 2,999.

I started this blog by writing about a post a day. As my readership grew, I started to pump out (heh, heh, “pump out”) more and more posts to keep everyone happy. Now, I am at a fairly regular number of four posts a day. Some have been terrible, a few have been great, but I still think that the majority have just been okay.

To be honest with you, blogging is a lot of work. Well, good blogging is a lot of work. Any schlub can throw a post and a photo together (See also: SYLG). It takes talent to write interesting posts that other people want to read.

And now, a completely irrelevant photo of Katherine Heigl:

That doesn’t mean that I don’t try.

And despite what RT may tell you, I don’t have that talent. Don’t get me wrong, I get readers - more readers than I ever thought - but, in the grand scheme of things, I am the blogger equivalent of a rodeo clown. People read SYLG to see what stupid thing I will do or write next.

And now, an irrelevant photo of Christian Bale for the ladies:

For the record, this is not a plea for compliments. That’s not my style. I plea for hits. I plea for links. I do not plea for compliments. I am my own worst critic, and no matter who tells me that I rock royal, I will disagree. So don’t waste your typing skills.

Of course, this is not meant as a bitch post. I love blogging - more so now with the new site; it reinvigorated me - and I love knowing that some of you are entertained by my antics. I know I say this a lot, but without you good people, I would be nothing. I would be the Keith Olbermann of the blogosphere. No talent, no readership. It would suck ass.

So, this post (and the photos) is just another excuse to thank you all for showing up and (hopefully) reading my blog. It’s not much, but it’s all mine. Thank you for being a part of it.

    Sweet… Thanks for the Christian Bale. And y’know, the relevant stuff too. Does a link from my blog count for anything, really? I’m so far down the D-List that I may need a new letter.

    Thanks for the link!

    You make me laugh (and think, sometimes).

    You’re special. Short-bus special, but hey, it is still a special specialness.

    Entertaining is right. A snarkfest most of the time. Keep it up and you may be a bull rider some day.

    If you are a rodeo clown I am down there around bull dung somewhere.

    Thanks for that picture of Bale. Yum!

    I like you, and I keep coming around because you listened to me whine about my experience on the I-95!

    Plus, you know, if I ever get back to Philly, it’s nice to know I’ll, you know, know someone - and a cop to boot - who can help me order a sammich.

    Oh yeah! Thank’s for the picture of Christian Bale. Such a good actor, and a yummy piece of eye candy. Makes me wish I was a lot younger……..

    Keep on pumping them out Wyatt…uhhh…or something like that. lol
    You’re a good writer Wyatt, that IS why people come back. And of course your sarcastic sense of humor, which growing up with Goldbloom, I am used to.

    If you have Dan Patrick, being Keith O. isn’t that bad.

    On your own though …

    Dorkelina - A link from your blog is worth a lot to me. With that cool new logo, it should be worth a lot to everyone!

    RT - Hey, I’ll take short-bus special!

    Admiral - Nice to know I’ll have a friend when the bull throws me into the crap.

    GroovyVic - Yep. Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms! *ducks*

    Earl - Hard work does not always equal relevance, my friend.

    Ky person - I saw Indy 4 last night, and they showed the trailer again. This will be the biggest movie of the summer.

    DL474 - Sarcastic? I’m not sarcastic! (Was that sarcastic enough for ya?)

    Marvin - Easy. big fella. You’re overstimulated and confused.

    Momster - Bunnies are cute. What were we talking about?

    Rick - (Cue Joe Pesci voice) How am I funny? Like a clown, funny? Am I here for your amusement???

    Doghouse - You got that right. All the entertainment without the liberal lunacy.

    3000 posts in 3 years? Damn, you’re like an online version of a Chatty Cathy. But feel free to keep babbling, I’ll keep reading.

    John D - Chatty Cathy. Now there’s a name I haven’t heard in years!

    I don’t like looking at pictures of Christian Bale. He always looks like a big, tall person. But from what I hear, he’s like an inch shorter than me…I’ve been told I’m short.

    MMP - Oh yeah, and you wouldn’t give him the time of day because of his height. :P

    Should we try reverse psychology on you Wyatt and tell you that you stink?

    Well, I can’t do it. I enjoy your blog, I usually get something out of it- even if it’s just a giggle. So rattle out another 3000 would ya? I need some serious giggle therapy.
