- You regretfully told two co-workers about your blog in a misguided attempt to "save" an awkward conversation. Subsequently, you do not have the stomach to live in a constant state of anxiety about whether or not you will be mocked, fired, and/or served with a sexual-harassment suit after posting about any work related subject.
Note on regret: So many subjects are now out the window... such a waste...such a sad sad waste.
- It's apparently still what your wife refers to as "too soon" to make jokes about that.
- Tweetage Wasteland would probably do it better.
- Tweetage Wasteland has already done it, and in fact did it better.
- It's not "Casual" enough.
- Everybody already knows Steve Jobs has resigned.
Note on self-worth: You don't even own a Mac.
- Not controversial enough.
- Too controversial.
- Posting about that would technically be a hate crime.
- After tweeting an amazingly creative and provocative industry-shaking tagline, which you spent hours crafting and perfectly wording, you received exactly no responses, mentions, or re-tweets.
- You've come to realize the fact that "anything you can do, Ethan Marcotte can do better."
Note on self-confidence: This will always be true.
- This is only your second blog post and you should probably save the really "good" ideas for when your reader participation has expanded beyond "...pure charity."
