Merlin Mann says so. He lists out 9 points that he thinks makes a good blog. I shall prove to you how he thought my blog is good!
1. Good blogs have a voice.
I have a voice! I definitely have a voice! It’s annoying for the most part, but hey it’s a voice!
2. Good blogs reflect focused obsessions.
I’m obsessed! You know who and what I’m obsessed with, don’t you? Me! See, I’m obsessed!! Obbbssseeesssssseeedddd!
3. Good blogs are the product of “Attention times Interest.”
Being obsessed shows where my attention is most of the time – me! Same goes for interest by default. 😀
4. Good blog posts are made of paragraphs.
I make paragraphs! My posts are never paragraph-less, right? Not only that, I number them, like this one! How’s that for readability?
5. Good “non-post” blogs have style and curation.
I have style! I used to have the CSS upgrade and got loads of style back then, dammit. Nobody can say I ain’t go no style, okay! I don’t know what’s curation, but I’ve got curiosity. Same thing, right? Or not. Who cares?
6. Good blogs are weird.
I’m weird! When you’re obsessive you’re naturally weird!
7. Good blogs make you want to start your own blog.
Don’t I make you want to start your own blog?? What, you have one already? Don’t you need another blog then, because I make you want to start one? What? You don’t need one?? What about me? Don’t I make you want to start a blog?? SOB!
8. Good blogs try.
I try! I try damn hard, okay. Didn’t I just try to make you start a blog, or another one if you already have one? Don’t you dare say I don’t try!
9. Good blogs know when to break their own rules.
Hmm, I don’t have rules. I should make some… Okay, rule no. 1: be less obsessive and weird. Yay, I just broke the very first rule I made! 😀
Okay… I believe I’ve just decreased my reader count by the double digits.

This is my Twitter grade!
Hmm, look at my Tweet cloud. The words “my” and “trying” are the biggest. I’m possessive but determined!
Gentledove: Words that rhyme with Sulz

Evelyn: (I stole gentledove’s rhymes…)
A truer tale is seldom toltz
Than of our lovely lippy Sulz.
When some can’t act like sane adultz,
she quickly jolts the silly dolts
with dread insults she catapults.
Gentledove: and on their ass she waltz-oops
Evelyn: Sulz is more gorgeous than Eva Longoria,
And Roald Dahl would envy her Bloggerdygook.
It’s a witty and fun-filled phantasmagoria –
If you don’t believe me then go take a look.
Even sulz couldn’t have done it as lovely as them! Thanks guys. 🙂
