It’s rare to for me to dedicate an entire love post to another blogger’s work. As a blogger, I do have a certain amount of pride and self-induced pressure to generate interesting, provocative and not awful work. But as a strategist and observer of culture I have to give a shout out to Stuff White People Like. It’s already a top blog on WordPress so it’s not exactly a secret, but it does have the secret sauce.

Well-written and without a trace of irony, it successfully sends up a lot of things that white people hold so dear. Especially middle- to upper-class white people who live in urban environments. Who can argue that white people don’t love expensive sandwiches?

I discovered an interesting little widget on my travels around the blogosphere yesterday: The Blog Readability Test. Type in your blog’s url and presto! It gives you a nifty little digi-sticker with your blog’s reading level on it. But it gets better– it works on regular websites too! Since I’m a nerd I looked up presidential candidates’ websites straight away. This is what I found…

DEMOCRATS: – College, Post Grad – Genius – Jr. High School*

REPUBLICANS: – High School – Elementary School – Genius** – High School – High School

When reading these results, keep in mind that half of America is below average at everything, always.

*which may explain the crying. Junior High can be a nightmare.

Can I Get Out of Work Writers to Write My Blog For Awhile?

TV writers, I miss you and I want you back. I’m not just talking about just the good writers either, if you work for CSI you can come back too.  I’m tired of watching A Daily Show, Fraiser reruns and the Nature Channel, and I’m tired of being pissed off that LOST is going to stop halfway through the season with the longest To Be Continued ever.  The least you can do is come over and write my blog for me.  We can promote your cause, let you show your skills and show everyone what they’re missing.  Think about it, let me know.
