1. The things you’re blogging about aren’t worth blogging about.
Instead of pulling that monk aside and blogging about this fascinating conversation you had with him where your view on suffering was completely changed, you’re showing us pictures of yourself outside a temple making a double thumbs up. Or you’re smiling outside the gates that say, “Arbeit macht frei.” The bus ride was just totally crazy too — there was no air-conditioning and a woman singing some type of karaoke was being blasted on the television at the front of the bus.
Wow. Talk about worthwhile reading material. Just…wow. There are a million angles that you could’ve taken, but you go ahead with the one about you having “a fantastic day.” If your blog were a person, it would be the kid who opts for PE when he needs a philosophy credit to graduate. That kid had plenty of friends, but we all knew he wasn’t going anywhere.
