Bradley Cooper

After five years, nearly 1,900 posts, and over 700,000 words, Bagwine Ruminations™ and yours truly, are shutting down for some re-tooling and relaxation until Friday, May 27th.

The reasons are simple.

As Schmoop told me the other day...


“You’re phonin’ it in, Ma-Hone.” 

And, she’s right…in a way.

It’s not that I have been phonin’ it in, it’s that I have lost purpose and focus on what I write about on Bagwine Ruminations.


It’s as though BR has often and of late, become a mere commercial for the award winning and highly rated Blog Talk Radio show that my buddy Jayman and I do on Saturdays and Mondays, I’m with Stupid.

I have to separate the two to a degree. I mean, I am going to always give a head’s up to our upcoming shows on here, and I will put up the latest archived edition of IWS, but that has to be secondary.

Fortunately, my radio partner in crime, Jay Bone Thug, has made that easier to do. I’m With Stupid now has a number of ways in which to be contacted.

We have a Tumblr account: IWS Tumblr

We have a Twitter account:  IWS Twitter

And…

We have an IWS e-mail account:  IWS_Radio@yahoo.com

So, gang you can always catch I’m With Stupid fun facts and punditry at those internets locales…
 


I also always update show info on my Facebook page and on my Twitter account which you can access on my right sidebar.

So really…I think keeping Bagwine Ruminations and IWS separate to a degree is no longer a problem; however…

I do need to refocus and take a couple of days off in order to get back to making the funny on BR like I have in the past.

I thought this was the perfect time to do just that because Friday the 27th is significant in a way.

This Friday, May 27th will mark the beginning of the sixth year of Bagwine Ruminations on Blogger, and while it has become a struggle at times to write something EVERY FUCKING DAY...

I hope to continue to do so for a long time to come, and hope what I write is at least halfway decent.

So there you have it folks…

Oh and the pictures, and post title? They have nothing to do with the post. 


I have to keep my numbers up while I’m away, and the pictures and title I used and how I labeled them will insure just that.

I may be unfocused, but I still have some deadly SEO skills.

Lastly, as I said I will continue to do…Here’s the latest episode of I‘m With Stupid from yesterday. 


It’s pretty funny and you can listen to it by utilizing the handy dandy BTR Machine:




Listen to internet radio with Im With Stupid on Blog Talk Radio

Until Friday my friends, and as always…

Cheers!!

I came here looking for naked pics of Bradley Cooper. I feel like I've been deceived.

Jay: I am sorry for your emotional and masturbatory loss, but I hold a firm "No Porn" policy on here, although I lie about it frequently. Cheers Funny Man!!

'I have lost purpose and focus'

As there is no crying in baseball, there also is no purpose or focus in blogging. Thinking so is self deception.

That said I look forward to the thoughts of the repurposed blogger brain emissions that will emerge on the 27th.

Matt-Man said...

Mike: I disagree with you Mike. I have (or until recently, had) a couple of very specific purposes in mind as my blog developed over the years. Cheers Mike!!

Beth said...

I didn't really mean you were phoning it in, I just like to give you shit;)

Matt-Man said...

Schmoop: Uh-huh. You're a terrible liar, but I still love you. Cheers and Zoooooves!!

It's always good to step back, take a deep breath and re-group. I am looking forward to it Matt-Man!

Matt-Man said...

Joker: Indeed my good man, indeed. Cheers Joker!!

Just me... said...

I unsderstand completely.. While my blog is more diary than anything else, still it's getting more and more difficult to get psyched into posting..
Good luck on finding your muse again... :-)

Matt-Man said...

Just: Thanks for stopping and thanks for the comment. I sometimes too, write about my life in diary form, but mainly I write in order to make others chuckle or occasionally even think. Either format or purpose, it does indeed get difficult at times. Cheers and good luck to you finding your writing groove. Cheers!!
