At this point in my blogging history with the Times Union, I’ve achieved several records and marks in my five-plus years of blogging. And we’re not just talking about my consecutive-day-blogging streak here. I’ve crafted a blog post that had 1,000 words – none of which contained the letter “e”. I’ve written a blog post that was a thousand-word sentence. I’ve written at least one or two blog posts that were scanned typewritten pages; I’ve done blog posts that were nothing but an assemblage of photographs and intertitles. Heck, I even had one blog post where the letters were printed upside-down – making people actually rotate their computer monitors to read my post. Ha ha ha. This is what I call “fun.” So why do I do this? It’s more of a personal challenge, to see if I can use the framework of blogging, the metaphysics of meta-blogging, if you will, to create new ideas and new concepts. It’s almost like using toothpicks and chopsticks as painting implements, while using paint rollers and brushes to serve food. So after I’ve created these experimental blog posts, I’ve now decided that this current blog post will set two new marks in my TU blogging career … today’s TU blog post contains the longest title ever on this TU portal … and this blog post also sets a record with the shortest blog content…

ever.
