Ratboy's Top Ten List of Blog Rules

(Thanks, Ratboy!)

1. If the majority of your wardrobe is black, you enjoy cloves and incense, and/or you like to write poetry about the blackness of your soul, don’t start a blog. Teh intarweb is safer without you.

2. Nobody cares about what you ate for breakfast.

3. Internet quizzes are fun and all, but you have to say other stuff, too. A 1-for-1 content-to-quiz posting ratio is the bare minimum.

4. Don’t speak in 1337. Ever. If you do, I'll be forced to kill you with my brain. (Ya big 14mz0r)

5. No, you’re really not secretly a dragon.

6. Even if you were a dragon, you can still get AIDS. Also, get professional help. Seriously.

7. A blog is not the place to get validation from your parents. They probably won't even read the thing, unless you point out your blog's existence to them, in which case, why not just talk to them directly? Anything else is just kinda pathetic. And not in the classical sense of the word.

8. Think first, then write. If, after long consideration, you decide you don't want anyone reading that entry you've just thought up, just don't write the bloody thing. It's that simple.

9. If you don’t want people commenting on your blog, and you like having hissy fits just because someone decides to politely disagree with you, don’t include a comments feature on your blog. Dumbass.

10. Yes, after a fashion, when you write a blog entry you are writer, editor, and publisher, all in one. That does not mean you are God. Teh intarweb does not quake at your passing.


  • I was wondering when you were going to put this up. Thanks for spreading the good word!

    (I should really blogroll you... I keep visiting, after all.)

  • The one and only rule for blog readers:

    1. If you don't like my blog don't read it.

  • Another rule should be: don't put coloured fonts on coloured backgrounds. People who want to be read should cause their readers to go bind! Fun stuff.
