We have a problem with The Whacko Blogs Halloween Ball, so as the benevolent dictator of The Whacko Blogs I need to change a rule in the voting for the Halloween Ball. This is not my fault and if it was I would be clever enough to blame them on someone else anyway. The result is that I want to make this perfectly fair anyway, so here's what I am going to change, and the reason why.
A few people submitted their costume picture and their writing on the same entry, so what I am going to do is keep the plus count for the writing that wins (currently Sheryl is spanking the rest of you like naughty children so you may want to get your New England Patriots on and cheat) but I am going to have a voting poll for the costume contest. Currently I have only three entries but they are all damn good!
You can see the costumes entries here ...

Not Everything Works As Planned
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
