State of the Blog: Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One

To paraphrase the poet:
I repeat myself? Very well, then I repeat myself.
The blog is large, and I forgot what I said.

In 2013, Lola and I won first, second, and fourth. That would be blue, red, and white for those of you in countries what do their ribbon colors the wrong way around. Since the American flag is red, white & blue, I made the comment,

What can I say, I was feeling patriotic.

In 2017, Robert & I won the same combination of colors. I made the same joke.

Robert is feeling patriotic.

Okay, so I repeated a one-liner. No biggie.

In 2012, I used a story about my father to make a point on inverse snobbery,

The idea that I am so cool I don’t have to prove to you how cool I am.
Cultural Commentary

In 2013, I told the same story at greater length,

Inverse snobbery means being so cool you don’t have to dress for the party.
Why I Drove a Beat-up Jeep to My Senior Prom

This was on different blogs. Excused on a technicality.

In 2016, I used a comparison between two barns to talk about how surroundings influence motivation,

The frog/pond ratio had altered dramatically.
Motivating Me

Imagine my surprise to find the same anecdote, told to the same purpose, four years earlier. I even used the pond analogy in the title. News to me.

It is better to be a small fish in a big pond.
The Fish/Pond Equation

The only solution is to go forth, do more, and have more to talk about. Onwards!

  1. Some things are worth repeating 🙂 And it’s not like any of us are going to remember that you did anyway. Most people do repeat themselves….
