The Newsletter for Superhumans

4 Jan

This could be you.

I’ve written a draft post every day and haven’t let myself hit the ‘publish’ button.  That’s how hard a habit dies, folks.

Welcome to The Jackie Blog 2012, where I won’t be posting every day like I did in 2011.  Instead, I’ll post once a week on Wednesday in a considerate attempt to help distract you from the ghoulish terror that probably is your work week and to encourage you to log questionable web addresses in your browser, thereby causing suspicion in your corporate entities and getting you all fired. Then, when we’re all jobless and happy, we can form an elite group of superhumans and I can use this blog as our newsletter.

Too much?

Well anyway, I’m going to be posting every week this year. That leaves me with 6 more days to sleep and play video games and leaves you with 6 less emails in your inbox.  If you subscribe.  Do you subscribe? You totally should.  Every time someone clicks the “yeah sure” on the top right side of this page, a baby angel learns to fly.  Granted, I got quite a few followers in 2011 and I’m so thankful for each and every one of you.  You’ve raised a fleet of baby angels that shall someday do our bidding when we form our elite group of superhumans.  But I also know there are gremlins in the woodwork who didn’t want to be spammed with my brain splatters every day and instead chose to stop in on occasion.  If you’re a gremlin, you should subscribe.  Out with you!

Also, I made a Facebook page in 2011.  And I got a Twitter account.  And I had this header image designed.   Listen, a lot happened last year that I’m still sleeping off.  So take your time, browse my brain goop, and reap the beautiful, chaotic bounty I sowed for you in 2011.  Oh, and for those of you who keep asking: yes, I’ll be doing Lollipop Tuesdays in 2012.  But they’ll be more like a surprise Tuesday post than an every Tuesday post. Less pressure, less emails, less running all over the country, putting on costumes, doing questionable things, and sprinting to a computer to write about it.

So there we are: look forward to 2012, revel in the treasures of 2011. Facebook, Twitter, Email Subscription, and 365 posts.  There’s fun for everyone.

See ya next Wednesday.

    You know, if the goal is to post once per week, that doesn’t mean you can’t post MORE than that! If the inspiration strikes, you should post. Just sayin’ 😛

      I suppose that’s the point of your surprise Lollipop Tuesdays. Nevertheless, why limit yourself, I say.

      You know, I really didn’t think it was possible that I would want to write more than that after having just pulled off last year. But I’m starting to feel like something is lacking. …hmm…

    Happy New Year.

    I look forward to reading your posts when ever you decide to post them 🙂
    But if you do decide to post more than one a week I won’t complain!

      I just might. My life feels kind of empty without them now. Maybe it will wear off… But hey: thanks for sticking with me regardless of how often I post!

    Yay! More posts AND more lollipop tuesdays. 2012 is gonna be great!

      It feels empty. I… feel empty.

      But I’m getting more sleep. Hurrah!

    Hello! Thanks, Jackie, for dissolving the panick attack I recieved when I read your last post in my Gmail. Jackie? Stop blogging? How could I go on without you daily humor? At least now your posts are even more anticipated to me and my fellow baby angel raisers, because they come once in a while. I feel like I know you, and I practically do. I know your voice and face, your take on things, and almost exactly what you would say in every moment. What would Jackie do? Keep blogging. And she did. That, folks, is the glitter to my unicorn.

      Neeka, I’m just now responding to this but I read it the day you wrote it and when Dave came to pick me up from work, I told him that someone said I was the glitter on their unicorn. It’s the best compliment I’ve ever gotten. Thanks. 😉

    I still can’t believe you did it. Good stuff, as always.
    Also, you’re one of my picks for the 7×7 Award. Congratz! Check it out and pass it if you’d like.

      Hey, thanks Jared! I’m totally flattered. Sorry it took me so long to acknowledge this – my brain seemed to forget the concept of comment replies in 2012.

    YAY!!! More Lolly pop Tuesdays!!! I can live the adventure through you. I’m now a happy camper and can continue my only reading addiction. Otherwise, I still hate reading, I get too sucked in. I really have had a comment for almost every post I have read so far, I think it may have been a mistake for you to allow me free reign over my comment button. Please expect a lot of grammar errors, spelling errors, and general mis-use of…..and ,,,,,and !!!!. Consider yourself warned….

      I still reserve the right to ignore comments that abuse the “!” 😛
