Many of you probably didn’t notice something above you, because it is so easy for people not to come to this actual website anymore. Most of my traffic isn’t rando’s that come from the internet, or people I actually know in real life from Facebook. Most of the people (or bots) come from WordPress. Actual bloggers that use Reader.
The problem with that is that WordPress has made it so easy to read people’s blogs without actually coming to their blog. The just read straight from Reader. I should know. I do it all the time. I don’t remember the last time I saw what a person’s blog looked like. It’s maybe 1 in a hundred that I actually click in their blog to read.
The reason why I say all this is because I changed my banner. Since I’ve changed it maybe 5 times in the whole existence of this blog, math tells me that I only change it about once a year. People might say, “Oh good. Change is good.” I say, “Nope it’s not.”
Change is terrible. Change is progress. Change is pain. Who needs progress? What has progress ever done for anyone? You know what the best thing for people really is? Staticness. Laziness. Sameification.
Seriously, name one change on the McDonald’s menu that has ever made any sense. The McPizza? The Hamburglur? The McDLT? The McSpaghetti? McHot Dog anyone?
How about Coke? The New Formula? How many of you are still drinking that stuff? Anyone still hoarding their Crystal Pepsi? You think change is a good thing, but you are wrong. How about all the changes ESPN is doing right now? Do you think all the unemployment that is causing is a good thing?
Oh, you say we made so much change by inventing the internet? Yeah, look at all the good that has given us. Wikipedia, something called the dark web, giving crazy people the ability to write things that everyone can read (and some do, judging by the traffic for this site).
Oh, we invented the car. Yeah, accidents. We invented the TV. Yeah, have you seen public access channels or the E! network?
Change is terrible and we all know it. That being said, I did a new banner and it is terrible and although it is new, it definitely isn’t improved. The only good Banner is Bruce Banner and the only good thing about Bruce Banner is that he turns into Hulk. And Hulk is only good because he is Bruce Banner.
And that is bad, just like any other changes we all try to go through.
