Unedited at 100
Just over a year ago I posted my first blog on Andy Unedited, stating that “to write a blog, you need to have an interesting personality or provocative opinions. I have neither.” I’m still not sure I have either, but in this, my one hundredth posting, I do know I’m having fun.
Here are some highlights from the first 100:
Mistiest Watercolored Memory: Vice President of Looking Out of the Window. It brought back lots of found recollections about my dad.
Most Controversial: The Serial Comma and the Plagues of Egypt. Who would have thought the lowly comma could arouse such passions?
Most Whimsical: Dear Santa. Old St. Nick brings out the wish list in us all.
Title with the Cleverest Rhyme: Do You Itch for a Niche or Are You on the Leash of Your Niche? Actually, it was the only title with a rhyme.
Truest Confession: Trashing a Book. Guilt still hangs over me for this.
Most Opinionated: Grammar Was Made for People, Not People for Grammar. I guess I do have some opinions after all.
Biggest Grammatical Error: Publishing that Lasts. I'm afraid that first sentence was not a case of breaking the rules on purpose, as my loving wife gleefully pointed out.
Post That Made My Staff the Most Nervous: "I Love to Fire People." There was really no need to worry. I haven't fired anyone . . . yet!
