I’m not happy.
I’m not happy that once again I have no reason to run naked and screaming from my caravan at a mere glance at the blog for review.
Practically Wisdom requires reading. Sigh.
Another out of the box blogger template, at least Joe has picked a few colours that make it easy to read, and not tried to blind us with flashing stuff.
The blog is a work in progress, you can tell Joe enjoys it and works hard at it.
He genuinely made me chuckle at a lot of posts, but I never once really laughed. That probably says more about the sewage I prefer to immerse myself in than any lack of cutting edge on Joe’s part.
I would probably blush should he say scrotal irritation or some such.
Joe is very self deprecating, which always makes for good reading. It was nice to see someone take their blog seriously enough to be putting so much effort in, but not take it too seriously as to be haughty.
His posts have evolved into an amusing and familiar exchange between himself, his train of thought, and his long suffering wife, or some other inquisitive soul.
You're not going to find anything earth shattering here, it’s all very nice, and clean fun. For the life of me I don’t know why I feel like they are dirty words around here, but the fact is, they are.
I feel like an utter disrespectful prick for saying the following to someone who has been married longer than I’ve been alive, but sometimes you need to sharpen up the posts.
Your streams of thought can have a lot of waffle in them, sometimes skirt around the point or punch line so much that I want to skip to the next post half way through. Edit a little. Just tidy up, re-read the post before you publish it, in those big blocks of text, there will be plenty you can trim to help make it punchier, sharper, and by default, funnier.
A little more structure in paragraphs or using the occasional blank space line wouldn’t go astray either. This makes your longer posts easier to read and sets a pace.
You definitely can do it, the ‘voice’ of your wife is a lot more to the point and is most often the one that delivers the punch line, coincidence?
You have good stuff here, I love how you set out to entertain and you hit the mark. You’ve not been doing it too long and you’ve improved in that time. I think you’ll be a lot better in 12 months again.
This is the best blog I have had to review.
With more to come with time and continued effort, Joe, for you this was an easy:
