Knowing my limits.

Internet adventures has been a staple of my life for the last 2 years, and I’d hope that during that time I’ve entertained others. However a few days ago I received a comments that’s made me reconsider the entire way I’m going to run this site.

More specifically, this comment. And I’d like to thank Selene for pointing it out, because I needed to know that I was becoming stale.

It made me realise that I’m just reiterating the same post every week, somebody doesn’t like me, they can’t spell and I make fun of them for it. That’s not fun to do, and it’s becoming increasingly boring for people to read.  So, starting from now, the publishing of email exchanges will be changed to a bi-weekly basis. Thus allowing me more time to craft better exchanges that are more diverse and entertaining. Meaning I’ll no longer need to publish sub-par exchanges. The weeks in between will feature random content until I’m able to figure out what works best in place of emails.

That said, I often have exchanges that don’t go anywhere, usually because either the person stops emailing me or they realise I’m taking the piss. Since I hate not posting something for people to read, here are a few I’ve saved over the years.

Yes, I like it, if you spell it out loud you say S.M.A. Double L. W. Double O. D

Which is quite a mouthful, which oddly, no one seems to expect from a Smallwood.
