Vandal SEO Poser

I'm about to officially become a freelance writer (I am making this sound like a much bigger deal than it is), and as such, I wonder about the future of print publishing in the age of the blog. See, I know about the agonizing process of submitting material to various journals, magazines and publishers, and I know how it's an uphill climb, the hill in question usually rising at an 80 degree incline (unless of course, you're a vapid ex-junkie professional celebrity, in which case you don't have to do anything but be related to someone). However, when everyone in the universe has a blog, will that mean that the door to print-publication (and I'm not talking about self-published stuff, or low-rent, quickie-mart porno mags) becomes even tinier and more elitist? Talk amongst yourselves.

Anyway, adding to the growing list of bloggers is my good buddy and bandmate, Kerry. Kerry works at the same place I do, and he works on natural search engine optimization. Or, what the rest of us refer to as MAGIC. Kerry writes about his SEO journeys here. He recently caught MSN cheating at SEO. So go to his site. It's pretty funny.

Celebs don't even have to do whatever it was they do to become celebs in the first place. Now all they have to do is walk down the street to the store, or a (not so) reality show. I don't get it, its like they are being paid to not work. And don't get me started on actors, I been tripping on that lately, people who get paid to not be themselves. Weird. That is a job? To not be yourself.
