How not to write a blog post.

Can you fall in love with a t-shirt? It seems that you can. Since fingering this up at the shops this week, I cannot stop thinking about it.

But I am fairly sure that I would be served with divorce papers if I sprang $160 bucks for it. Shop it here. (And if you buy it, please don’t tell me. Because jealousy is not an attractive trait.)

What else have I found around the traps? THE BEST BODY MOISTURISER EVER! I jumped on board the IN SHOWER BODY LOTION, and could not get on board. As a friend said, it came off looking like “jizz in the shower.” And I like my shower jizz free!

Isn’t this turning out to be a nice post!

Anyway, this is the business.


Winter scales on legs be gone! Get it at the supermarket or here.

Over at The Hoopla today, I am discussing why I don’t think I will ever get divorced. TOUCH WOOD and click here.

Ok, so an old mate of mine has started a business, turning your instagram shots into greeting cards. Cute for invitations, thank you notes and other social niceties. Cheap too, all done here in Australia.

What else is news this week?

Oh yes. Do you remember the episode of the Simpsons where Bart forgets to vote for himself to be school captain? Well I felt the same when the Finalists were announced this week at they Australian Writers Best Blog Competition. This is the one that you actually want to win as it is based on content and not on popularity. I meant to enter it, or have my fictitious personal assistant Consuela do it for me. But it was not to be, because of senility. But click HERE to visit the finalists and hopefully, discover some great new reads.

Speaking of blogging, I mentor a few bloggers here and there. I think the secret to succeeding in blogging is to identify what success looks like to you. For me it is about the story telling and sharing. I love opening up a fresh page and watch my fingers go ape shit across the key board. I don’t get frustrated. It is like brushing your teeth. Just do it! I spoke about it recently at a workshop, and I hope my [insert wanky corporate term here] “takeaway” that people got from my rant was…

“It is your blog. Write whatever you want!” or “Haters? Fuck em..”

I mean, look at this post. We started out talking about a t-shirt. And jizz in the shower.

Ok, lets try to wrap this blog post up in a sensible and intelligent way…..


There is no way to sensibly and intelligently wrap up this blog post.

What do you think of blogging competitions?

Should I fire Consuela?
