I blog on WordPress.
I really like WordPress. And I liked them before they picked my blog for Freshly Pressed, although…wow…that was fun and it did make me like them more.
Yes, my affections can be bought. I prefer to call it “a flexible, consumer-based orientation towards relationships.”
For a price list, leave your email address. Indicate clearly how much affection you’re interested in. Packages are available starting at the “Pen Pal” level and go all the way up “Desperate Internet Stalker.” Premium packages include gushing tweets a lá any Justin Bieber list.
But back to WordPress. (You people really need to do a better job of keeping me on track here. You KNOW what my attention span is like.)
A week or two ago, I noticed a new button near the scheduling calendar in my dashboard.
It says, “This post is super-awesome.” Next to it is a ticky-box.
I haven’t clicked the ticky-box yet. I don’t know what will happen.
Will my blog light up and start to blink like the Vegas Strip?
Do I get a secondary title that says, “THIS BLOG IS SUPER-AWESOME. THE AUTHOR REALLY THINKS SO. THE AUTHOR CLICKED THE SUPER-AWESOME BUTTON. BUT IS IT REALLY SUPER-AWESOME? YOU BE THE JUDGE.” And then maybe it installs some nasty poling system that everybody but me gets to use.
But, I can’t stand the curiosity any longer.
I’m going to click the ticky-box.
ALERT: This is a test. This is only a test. This a test of the “super-awesome” broadcast system. In the event of true “super-awesome-ness” you would be laughing hysterically and promising yourself, “that will never happen in my house!”
