Hey! Greg Pincus Hacked My Mac!

A funny thing happened on the way to getting this blog rolling, and it happened over on The Happy Accident. Greg wrote a post called “the Blahgs” about struggling to maintain momentum with your site. He makes some great points and offers ideas to get yourself back on track. It hit home with me, as I’ve been working up the will to build out this blog. But that wasn’t the funny thing. At least not in the ROFLcopter way. No the funny thing is that buried in a folder on my Mac is a file called “comic ideas” and it includes the following:

The Blahgs – funky, freaky, ironic and cynical looks at life in the online age

“What’re you blogging about?”

“The fact that I have nothing to blog about. I’m citing your post from yesterday about the same thing.”

“Cool. I linked to yours about writer’s block from last week in mine.”

“Yeah, my traffic totally spiked.”

“People just love posts about nothing.”

It’s true, when you’re stuck write about nothing. It worked for Seinfeld, it’ll work for you. And me, at least until I figure out what I’m really blogging about.


I don’t really think Greg hacked my Mac, but you should read his blog to pick up a lot of great social media ideas.

    You’ve let the world in on my secret! How dare you. 🙂

    That’s pretty funny, though I did find a few other mentions of blahg and blahgs around. Too “easy” I think. My first defined word at the Happy Accident, though, was confrustewilderation. Bet you don’t have THAT in your files!

    Thanks for the shout out….

    Now I have to search your blog for confrustewilderation, and maybe ask for a pronunciation guide.

    One of my claims to “internet fame” is macquisition over in the Urban Dictionary. Hmmm, I might have Macs on the mind.
