Frivolous Friday

August 21, 2009

Bit of a cop-out today. Again. But a fun one this time, I think.

First things first, though: it’s 2009, and ya gots ta do what ya gots ta do.

Ergo, you can now become a fan of the blog on Facebook or follow the blog (-slash-me) on Twitter. I hope you’ll do both. Not much going on in either place yet, but stuff will happen eventually.

Also, this blog now has an e-mail: BillDailySomething (at) gmail dot com. So if you’ve got something to say that you don’t want to share with (a tiny, tiny portion of) the world, send it there. Sometime soon I’ll have a box where you can access all that stuff. In the meantime, join the FB page and follow me on Twitter anyway.

Second: so I’ve been a fan of The Onion for something like thirteen years now. Just brilliant, funny stuff. And they were all over the baseball today.

First: I actually think their written stuff has declined a bit in the last few years, but this little number is pretty perfect. That’s baseball.

And where they’ve fallen behind in the written content, they’ve made up for with their marvelous fake-tv stuff. At least as amusing as the bit itself is how perfectly they’ve mimicked the ludicrous excess of Sportscenter:

Link of the Week or So: Navel-Gazing Division

July 9, 2009

Not much to say today.

But I’ve finally stumbled upon the single most appropriate (and appropriately inexpensive) BBREF player page to be the first one sponsored by this blog! (I mean, who else but me has ever put him on the all-time anything team?)

I haven’t been much of a self-promoter re. this blog, especially lately. Part of that is just who I am, and part is that I’m not convinced I’m doing anything worth promoting. As much as I love and appreciate all my current readers, I’m really just sitting here once a day and jotting down whatever pops into my head. I think it’s the knowledge that I could definitely do a lot better if I put in (or had) the time to really polish it and think about exactly what it is I want to say. I don’t know that I need hundreds of people to read my second-best.

On the other hand, maybe seeking more traffic will inspire me to actually do better somehow. And in either case, I’ll definitely do more of these; not only is it about the most targeted marketing possible, but it’s a way to support the best website in the world (not that they seem to need all that much support anymore). Let me know if you happen to stumble across any more particularly appropriate, unsponsored pages…
