It used to be said that "content is king" when dealing with web content… I now disagree and here's why:

As you can guess, given Bell's propensity to make a bad situation worse, they cautioned me against taking that initiative agai... read more »
Hey guys! I'm afraid I've failed you again by being a lazy bum, but before you judge me, I've updated the site to lessen your hostility against me. Please put down that fork now! Okay, I guess it's quite obvious to see that I've linked my instagram, twitter, foursquare, and facebook page to my blog.

So I'm going to try again if you'll allow... read more »
