I do try, but I may not always be the most "reliable" blogger. Rest assured I would love to post at 8:03 am every weekday with a fascinating and witty new entry, so everyone could start off their workday being amazed by my superior intellect. Alas, that's not how it works.
So I thought I'd give you all link to another blog that I really enjoy: Ken Jennings's Blog. You probably all remember him as the Mormon who won a million times in a row on Jeopardy! and had ridiculous amounts of trivial knowledge.
Well, Amy H. pointed out his blog to me, and not only is it trivial but he's a really good, funny writer. And--he updates it every day! Like, he doesn't have a full-time job anymore because he's a gazillionaire so he really does update it every day! (Now watch—today will be the first day he doesn't.)
Anyway, it's highly entertaining and focuses (loosely) on the theme of trivia. Which reminds me of an interesting article I read recently about our obsession with trivia contributing to the downfall of modern society. But then again, doesn't everything? I still take pride in my Trivial Pursuit abilities!
On KJ's blog there's also a weekly trivia quiz that you can sign up to receive via e-mail. Amy H. forwarded it to me once and it's freakin' hard. But a great way to waste a whole day of work! So obviously you'd prefer to read my stellar blog. But if I'm slacking, visit Ken Jennings.
p.s. I had actually intended to give a shout-out to my readers who I know are bloggers and post links, but seeing as how most of them are updated sporadically (Amy K. I'm looking in your general direction), I was afraid it would seem more like a reprimand than a shout-out. But feel free to give your blog props in the comments!
