Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

10 Not-So-Random Things About The McVie Show

1. All of the episodes here are self-indulgent. This whole blogging thing is self-indulgent.

2. I write and edit every episode on Word. Then I cut-and-paste it in Blogger. Before I press “publish” I preview it; almost always I will discover a typo error, or a grammatical mistake. Or I’d reread a certain word, phrase, sentence or paragraph and decide it’s better written in another way. And after I publish it online, I still reread it at least twice. Almost all of the episodes here had reedits after I published it.

3. Just because a person reads, follows or links my blog does not mean that I read, follow or link his or her blog. Conversely, I may be interested in what someone has to say, but my thoughts may not necessarily interest him.

4. Ask me nicely and I’ll consider including your blog in my blogroll. My reason for including you in my blogroll can be quite arbitrary. So think of it this way: It’s. No. Big. Deal.

5. A non-inclusion in my blogroll does not in any way diminish the value of your blog. If I didn’t include you in my blogroll, it’s my loss, not yours.

6. I prefer a white background versus a dark background. Cleaner to look at and easier on the eyes.

7. One time I saw that there were 55 people following The McVie Show. A few days later the number dropped to 54. At first it bothered me. But when I realized that I too am guilty of failing to read other people’s blogs religiously, I got over it quickly.

8. I only follow around 6-7 blogs on a daily basis. The rest, whenever I have the time or I remember to check out their blog. Or if they’d post a lot more regularly.

9. This should be the last of this list shit.

10. I’m never tagging anyone.

I follow your blog because, like some people here, I find it funny and interesting. I also listen to fabcast (although not religiously)and it never fails to make me smile. I don't mind if you don't follow my blog... =) there's nothing interesting going on in there anyway.
