In December I was beyond thrilled when a radio announcer in Minneapolis gave my blog a shout out on his morning radio show, which I wrote about here. In that post I mentioned how my thought process changed over time as I began to get positive feedback from people. It went from, "I'm have a pathological need to share the funny shit I see everywhere and if a few people I know get some enjoyment from it then that's just icing on the cake" to "I WANT ALL THE READERS, EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME, TO COME TO MY BLOG!". It turns out that the role of a megalomaniac ("a person who suffers delusions of their own power or importance") fits me like a glove.
My posts with the highest views ever are, without a doubt, the ones about actor Brenden Coyle blocking me on Twitter. I'm still blocked by the way.

If his behavior helps to bring me new readers then it's all good.
