Sam N. got me thinking the other day when he posted on my page on 20SB:
grats jon! better bring some extra awesomeness in your posts =D
So I promised him I would download some awesome off the Internet and get it on my site A.S.A.P. and thus began my quest for awesome.
First I checked out my favorite website indexing service. You should check it out if you’re ever bored. I call it Google. Google told me there were lots of sites hosting some awesome, so I started to sort through my “results” (that’s the stuff Google gives me when I ask it stuff).
First there was some “Oh My That’s Awesome” blog that was only half awesome. It didn’t have the whole awesome package.
Then there was a pretty awesome definition of the word awesome on dictionary.com: Slang. very impressive: That new white convertible is totally awesome.
Google also served me up some “results” video style. I think google should warn people not to post unawesome videos under an awesome title. There was one video that had a good collection of awesome.
I was about to give up when all of a sudden a ran across awesometheband. They had some insightful posts that really began to open my eyes up on awesome.
That’s when it hit me. It’s not about the awesome … it’s about my readers.
Because the truth here is that I can’t bring the awesome to my posts without you. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it does it still make a sound? Same with blogs people. If a guy writes a blog and there is no one around to read it is it still awesome?
