Maverick Blogger Pioneers World’s First Blog Post Reboot!

Seeing the new Batman movie last night, I had this exciting epiphany about blogging.Blogging is enormously demanding of time and energy. You have to turn out a completely new post at least every few days. For some bloggers, it's a new post several times EACH  DAY.But sitting in the theater and looking around at the happy faces, movie-goers content to see yet another Batman movie and plop down $9.50 for the privilege, I thought about reboots. … [Read more...]
