Should I Start A Blog? Elliot Mason

What are they?

Who are they for?

Does anyone read them apart from the person who’s written them?

Should I start a blog?

Isn’t writing a blog just a form of procrastination?

Isn’t everything just a form of procrastination when you think about it?

Not really no.

Oh ok, sorry about that.

No worries.

Are you an Australian?

No, why?

Well you just sounded a bit Australian when you said ‘No worries’ just then.

Oh right haha no I’m from the Isle of Wight but I did once share a house with some Australians a few years back so I probably picked it up from them. Haha.

Oh hahaha yeah you sounded just like one. Hahaha.

Hahaha. Did I really? That’s hilarious. Hahaha

Well you certainly had me fooled. Hahahaha.

Hahahaha. That’s not difficult! Hahahaha

Shut your face.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a whole blog before.

Come to think of it, I’m not even sure if I know what the word blog actually means.

Hang on I’ll google it… *a tippy tap, tippy tap*

Blog is a short form for the word weblog and the two words are used interchangeably

Oh yes of course, silly me. It’s a short form for the word weblog everybody! Yeah it all makes sense now. Pretty obvious when you think about it.

Right then. Now I know what a blog (or weblog *wink*) is I suppose I’d better put something on it.

But what something?


*stares out the window for 3 hours*

Ooo I know! Maybe I could post a picture of me enjoying writing my blog…

What's the point in a blog Elliot Mason

Yes that’s the ticket! I’m getting into it now. I can’t believe I’ve never done this before. I think it might be one of the single most exhilarating things I’ve ever experienced in my life!

Right, now what?

I suppose I should put some content here shouldn’t I?

But what sort of content?

Content, content, content…

*taps chin with biro*

The only sort of content I can think of is in the form of some written words all shoved together to make a sort of narrative. A sort of story type of thing. Like an episode of Baywatch or something like that, you know.

But what story?…

*taps biro with chin*

Maybe I could write about something that’s happened to me…

*biros chin with tap*

Something unusual and out of the ordinary perhaps…

*chins tap biro with*

OH! There was that weird thing that happened to me the other day. You’ll like this actually, I’d forgotten all about it till you mentioned it. Yes this thing that happened might be one of the single most exhilarating things I’ve ever experienced in my life! I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I hadn’t seen it with my own two eyes. Absolutely incredible it was. Here’s what happened…

I was wandering around Morrisons doing my usual weekly shop (Mr Muscle, 4 cream slices and a twix) when all of a sudden and out of nowhere flew this enormous OH WAIT HANG ABOUT!

AN MP3!!! That’s another sort of content!…

No WAIT. A VIDEO!!!!!!!

Mind you that’s a bit too much work for a blog isn’t it?

What about a gif?…

Maybe add a soundtrack to make it more romantic…


Right, well… How long are these blogs supposed to be anyway? That’s feels pretty weighty to me. Lets do a word count…


Is that a lot of words? It sounds quite a lot. I had no idea I knew that many words to be honest. Bugger it that’ll do!

Now what am I supposed to do with it?

Post it on Facebook?

Then what?

Do another one?

Then what?…

*throws blog off cliff*

Quickly, share this! No time to explain...
