Ranking things

I'd love to be able to rank things like a lot of other bloggers do - favorite books, movies, etc. - but I just find it far too difficult. I think the problem for me is that I'd remember one or two items while forgetting ten, and then when I'd publish the list, I'd feel like an idiot for leaving things out. Because how can you have a definitive list of something when the list keeps changing?

So what I think I'll do is to figure out ahead of time what category to rank, then spend some real time thinking about what the best of that category is. Or just ignore it altogether.

Until then, I'll just make stuff up, like the Top 10 Least Likely Fried Foods (#7: Jell-O) or something along those lines.

For no reason whatsoever, here's a picture of a gibbon:


Okay, then.

Hey, neat blog! You obviously have a lot HTML know how. I wish I could put my own picture on the site header, but I content myself with my (limited) sidebar knowledge for now.

I like ranking things too, my problem is taking it farther; answering questions like, why did such-and-such a movie get put above such-and-such? Things like that.

I see that you've put a link to my blog in your sidebar. I'm very honored. So how did you find my blog? Do we have a mutual friend? Probably.

I look forward to seeing what happens here.

Oh, and by the way that is a very cool picture of a gibbon.

Actually, we both go to the same church. Katie was the one who told me about your blog.

I know very few people (so far) who have blogs. I think they're fun and even sort of addictive. (Blogs keep kids off drugs.) I'm trying to get others to start them, but haven't had any takers...yet.

Thanks for reading, and probably posting the first comment!

Hey, you're welcome. And thanks for the new motto, "blogs keep kids off drugs" is really catchy. I'm going to have to stick it on my blog somewhere.[wink]

 

Okay, now it's your turn | Home
