Take Back the Blog: Spam

This kind of pertains to me. Plus, I’m bored and I feel like writing a blog entry in advance. A whole week in advance… Anyways, today I’m going to talk with you about spam. As in, junk emails, not the mysterious meat product that comes in a can. Once when I was doing a campus clean up with Best Friend we found a can of Russian Spam in a parking lot. Anyways, I’m getting of topic.

My normal email account never gets spam. Unless you count Princeton Review recommending the same colleges to me once a week or so… I mean, I don’t get any Viagra, long-lost cousin the prince of Uganda kind of spam.

My blog email, however, is an entirely different case. I’m not sure how or why I get all the spam. The only time I enter the email is when I comment on blogs… It’s very odd. Anyways, the current subject lines in my box, and the kind people that send them to me.

  • Directory Submitter: Forget Asking For A Link Exchange
  • eBay Cash Machine: You have made $300
  • Uk Award National 2010un.: Ticket no:56475600545188
  • Blog Blaster: How would you like 2 Million Sites linking to your ad?
  • Feed Blaster: How would you like to put your ad right to the screens of millions in minutes?
  • Hit Booster: How to get free quality visitors to your website
  • Magdalena Brooks: US New Business Database- 4.8 million records all with emails
  • Directory Submitter: Submit to 2700+ quality directories
  • FOREIGN TRANSFER MANA…: (no subject) [Message preview: You have won 891934.00 pounds]
  • Top Seo Secrets: Top-Search-Engine-Optimization-Secrets

I’m lazy and I don’t have it in me to type up the rest, but basically they’re all about how I’ve either won money, or how to advertise my website/business. Both are appealing, but I’d prefer to not get a virus.

Do you get spam email? How much? What’s the best spam you’ve ever gotten? Do you eat Spam the meat? What is Spam made out of? Have you ever tried Russian Spam?


Take Back the Blog: Like a Bieber

Four days in a row! I haven’t been this good about blogging since the beginning of December when I was still on my NaBloPo roll. Today is writing day!

On… Sunday? I think it was Sunday. Sunday or Monday night. It doesn’t really matter. Anyways, one night recently I started working on a script. Not for Script Frenzy. I don’t think I have the time or the patience for that right now, although back in November I was already planned, psyched, and ready for it. The script is more for fun, and at my own leisurely pace and convenience for now. No, I think it must have been Sunday that I started that because on Monday I was working on song lyrics.

The other day, I came up with the idea with one of my friends that we were going to make a YouTube production company and become stars. We came up with a list of ideas for videos (obviously, you know, not while we were supposed to be doing work…) Anyways, I came up with lyrics for a couple of spoof songs on Monday, and had way too much fun doing that.

Take Back the Blog- My Husband Dave

Don’t tell The Boy, but I’m planning my marriage to another guy. You may have heard of my future husband. He’s a bit of a YouTube star. He’s also got some songs on iTunes. I know, I have rather high standards. He’s quite a catch.

My future Mr. is Dave Days.

I found him yesterday. It’s been a rather short relationship.

This is my favorite Dave song. When we’re married I will make him sing it to me nightly. Yes, I’m a creeper. If you ever read this Dave (and I’m not sure how or why you found this…), I’m sorry, but I just can’t contain myself. You may want to run away now.

Or maybe you’ve seen this one. I’m ashamed of his relationship history, but no guy is perfect.

It could be a love story for us, Dave, just say yes.

Take Back the Blog Week

So, to inspire myself to actually get things done over Spring Break (other than never getting dressed and playing Sims all day…) I’m initiating a Take Back the Blog Week. Which I just made up. But really, if anyone else feels like they’re in a slump, feel free to steal the idea.

I’m going to be making some blog changes this week. Including finally making my own banner at some point (hopefully). Also, to try and keep myself motivated to blog, and not complain about having anything to talk about anymore, I’m going to initiate a new… schedule, so to speak. Each day of the week will have a certain topic, so I have more of a format of what to write about. Finally, I’m going to try to better organize my categories and tags. Yay!

Monday: Me. We’re talking random factoids, surveys, and other getting to know the person behind the blog activities.

Tuesday: Recommendations and Reviews. This is the day when I’ll talk about the latest blog/book/movie/TV show/whatever else I can think of.

Wednesday: Writing. On Wednesdays I’ll talk about my latest projects, and such. Maybe even include some excerpts.

Thursday: The week in review. Thursday is halfway through the week, so I’m going to report on things that have happened so far that haven’t fit into the other categories.

Friday: Friends and family. What more is there to say? I’m…going to talk about people around me. Nice things. Mostly. We’ll see…

Saturday: Weekly airing of griefs. Saturday I am allowed to complain about one problem a week. Readers, you can feel free to skip Saturday and its angst.

Sunday: Weekly airing of good things. To combat Saturdays whining, on Sunday I will talk about the good things that have happened to me in the week, and my favorite moments.
