Here on wordpress, you know when you finish a post and you publish it you get a quote from some dead (or almost dead) writer guy (who was never a poet, let’s be honest, who probably wrote the most blandest simplest things in the world, let’s be honest) about how to be a good writer? I want to turn those damned things off, they annoy me to no end and I could care less about what any of these dead guys think on what makes good prose or good plot or good whatever.
And you know what else I want to turn off? That achievement crap – oh yay you made a million posts this week you special snow flake you! You unlocked the “I’m 42 and can finally dress myself” achievement! YAY! Here’s a cookie made with wuv and chocowat. I don’t need it, I don’t care, I don’t want my blog telling me all this stuff, I just want to do what I do and maybe one of you people out there will listen and hey isn’t that nifty.
