About a month ago, on Groundhog Day even (which is also my birthday & I did see my stupid shadow), the DB celebrated its 1 year anniversary of bloggage, by not posting a darn thing. In 12 months I’ve had awesome readership with 72,000 page hits and have posted 95 Theses (I mean posts- this is #96)! I’ve posted parts of my book The Domesticated Bachelor and have added several new parts, like bachelor profiles of such guys as Sherlock Holmes, Vincent Van Gogh, and Mad King Ludwig.
But I’m still not a Domesticated Bachelor.
I made a blueprint for becoming a DB called “11 Steps To Becoming A Domesticated Bachelor” in which I developed a checklist for how I, and other dudes, could be more awesome, drop the self-loathing, and suck less. It hasn’t happened yet. I’m not domesticated. I’m still a half-wild ManBearPigGoatDude. I could maybe check off half the items on that list (with some stretching), but still feel sub par (though I guess sub par is actually
good if you’re talking golf, but I’m not). There’s still work ahead for a failed perfectionist with ADD & sloth. I’ll reach my DB goal yet or make a fool of myself trying (ooh, success on one count).
In the meantime, there will be more shameful bloggage and I’ll keep trying to improve myself in great acts of futility. If you’re new to this site (or haven’t yet read), check out the posts listed in the right hand column. Under the list of the most recent posts, there’s a list of the most popular posts, including some of my favorites like Logan’s Run and Population Control, Sound of Music Death Match!!! Liesl v Maria, Celebrity Crushes: The Girl Next Door, and GOOGLE-Stalking the Ex.
Thanks for your awesome readership and feedback and I look forward to another great year of the Domesticated Bachelor!
Happy February Birthday to my mom who had a big birthday this year on February 10! Love you mom!
The secret word is futility.
