Patterico's Pontifications


My Biggest Blogging Error in 2011 (Patterico)

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:00 pm


Second biggest error: not blogging.

Or is it the other way around? Sometimes I can’t tell.

My New Year’s Resolution: to avoid both errors.

  1. Also starting the sockpuppet thread late yesterday. That was a pretty big mistake.

  2. We know that! We told you that yesterday!

  3. Looking forward to seeing how you accomplish that Resolution… 😀

  4. I promise to comment when you don’t blog, but I’ll avoid commenting when you do blog.

  5. Or maybe I mean the opposite.

  6. to blog or not to blog… that is the question?

  7. it’s a paradox… kinda like when people call Wall Street Romney a conservative

  8. the recent comments says there’s opposed to be a sarahw comment here and a Dana one too

  9. oh it’s cause of you used the same title

    I didn’t know that was allowed

  10. Proposal to avoid duplicate thread titles. Do I hear a second?

  11. Blog owners do get a little uppity sometimes. I mean what’s this with stealing some body else’s already being used thread title and all? Yes. I Second happy’s proposal. Blog etiquette must be maintained.

  12. it makes sense I guess cause sometimes people have posts they do over and over like “quick takes” or whatever

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  13. OK, OK, I changed it.

    Mine had capital letters, so you should have been able to tell them apart already. :)

    Patterico (1c6e81)

  14. but yeah it renders the recent comments into a confuzzling uselessness like when you lose the chocolate box lid

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  15. oh. good show now all is right in the world again

  16. Unleashing confusion. Very meta.

  17. I thought your biggest blogging error was not telling your readers that I was always right.

    steve (254463)

  18. I dont know what’s reall anymore.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  19. I agree, Sarah W…how do we even know this is the real Patterico talking??? I’ve never known him to be very conflicted about anything online… and to be conflicted about blogging, no less….and I’m still in the dark as to why AW no longer posts here! Confusion reigns…

    Dana (4eca6e)

  20. It’s probably the fake Patterico or the hacked Patterico.

    I’m conflicted about whether I’m conflicted.

  21. I am in awe that you can keep this blog going at all, with your tremendous commitments in other areas, plus the nastiness you have to deal with sometimes. Thank you, Patterico, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Brother Bradley J. Fikes, C.O.R. (35eeb9)

  22. You don’t even know you are not the Real PATTERICO so how are you supposed to get anything right??


  23. Hmmmm …

    So our distinguished blog-host plans to not blog in 2012 and also plans to not not-blog in 2012 …

    Is this the birth of the SemPiternal SockPuppet pSeudoPatterico ?

  24. My New Year’s Resolution: to avoid both errors.

    So, are you claiming the power to make a rock so big you can’t lift it?

    … cause that’s a pretty bold claim. 😀

  25. Keeping the creative juices going is the most difficult part of writing. To write well, it must be done with passion. There are times when you need a break to recharge your batteries. But then there is the time to climb the hill again.

    I hope I can read more of your excellent analyses in 2012.

    Oh, I don’t know; I do that all the time.

  27. Does our esteemed host have a lot of sock-puppet admirers, or are they just groupies?

    The Dana who isn't Patterico (f68855)

  28. I don’t think Mrs. Patterico allows groupies.

  29. AD-RtR/OS! #28 – not even when they are for Mrs. Patterico ?
