My Mom Said I Should Start a Blog

Updated on February 8, 2012

Here is my first blog....I hope my mother is happy

Yep. My mom said I should start a blog. That’s what she said. Right after she asked, for the 30th time, “What is that internet thing again? Do we have the internet?” And I tried to explain it to her, like for the 30th time, that, yeah, we do have the internet.

Then she said that some lady she works with at the hospital has a daughter with a blog. So I spent about 20 minutes trying to explain what a blog is. Then she said, “You should start a blog,” and went on to talk about what a great writer I am—all because in the 4th grade I won this writing contest thing. She always acts like I threw my whole life away, just because I didn’t pursue a Pulitzer after my famous 4th grade essay, “How Chipmunks and Squirrels Are Different.” Yea. I bet Popular Science would be all over that.

So, I figure, at least if I am down here in the basement and making tapping noises on the computer, maybe she won’t nag me about getting a job anymore. If she asks about blogging or the internet again, I can tell her, yes, I’m blogging, and I’ll make it sound like it’s work, and she’ll probably just assume I’m getting paid.

Even better, I am gonna get other people to write blogs, and then I can tell her that I am a “Blog Editor.” That sounds pretty damn impressive, if I do say so myself.

So stay tuned for entries into this, my new blog. I figure it will be years before my mother even comes close to figuring out the internet and can figure out how to read this crap—as long as I make computery noises, she’ll never be the wiser, and I’ll be living rent- and nag-free…..

      Don't follow my example. My mother was the same way, then I helped her get her "feet wet" using the 'net...

      Boy was that a terrible decision! Now she been absorbed into internet money-making schemes and is addicted to spam! (seriously, she gets about 2 million emails a day - and still tries to "catch up" on reading her email!)

      Anywho, terrific job - fooling your mom and all, wish I'd done the same...

      I'd love to read that deciphering of aboreal rodents myself, btw!

      Lol and take care!
