Hey all, I am in a Blog of War competition, which I will post more about later today. Round 1 is reviewing another competitor's blog, so here's the post.
You can read about the contest (and case your vote) on this page. Voting = comments, so make sure to comment on his page. Thanks all!!
|It's WAR! Again...|
Al Penwasser's blog, Penwasser place, is a perfect example of good things that come in small doses. Al has been casually blogging since 2009, but has picked up his posting pace since December 2010. He just finished completing April's A-Z challenge, where, in my observations, he's done more typing in a month than he has in any other time.
Most posts are short and sweet. That Damn Barbie is a perfect example. It takes 10 seconds to read, and about 2 minutes to recover from the laughter. Some people that type 'quickie' blogs seem to have a version of typing ADHD, but with Al, his pictures speak the 1,000 words that he doesn't type.
Thanks to this post, showing a picture of a crosswalk sign, I'll always see a naked stick-man crossing the street. He only needed 15 seconds to warp my brain for life.
My only beef with him, if any, is the fact he's a Yankee's fan. Being an Angel's man myself, I have a nice seething disliking for the Yanks. The only good news for him is I'm in Idaho now, so I can't go to a ballgame and boo. The local minor league here, the Chukars, are a rookie-league team for the Royals, so I guess I kind of indirectly root for them now. Ick.
One recurring feature you have to see to appreciate is the 'Today's Vocabulary' sections, where he defines a word in his own special way. Some highlights include:
- The Crampon
- Fish Sticks (Kanye West, for some reason, is nowhere to be seen...)
- Polyvinyl (which may become a 'Freaky Friday' post over here)
- and much more.
Long story short, give this dude a look. There's a little over 100 posts, so it'll be a quick go-through, and I think you'll be happy with what you see.
