The Oatmeal – Funny Website

If you haven’t checked out The Oatmeal, and you enjoy quirky humor, then you really should click on the following link:

This website is the brainchild of Matthew Inman, who created the card game Exploding Kittens. The comics and blog articles are sometimes bizarre, usually very perceptive, often hilarious, and always brilliant. One of my favorite blog articles is the one entitled, Autocorrect hates you:

All I have to say is, be prepared to chuckle.

What Do You Want To See On My Blog?

Noel Denim

Hey everyone! I wanted to check in with you to see what you would like to see on my blog. Since I have been posting every single day, it can be a real challenge to come up with content to post. For that reason, I am not as prone to write lengthy posts.

I have also decided to change my posting frequency to three days per week from now on. I will post every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday or Sunday.

Here is a list of topics which I typically cover:

Preventative health
Optimal health
Brain health
Medical conditions
Healthy recipes
Cosmetic Dermatology
Personal grooming
Bodybuilding contests and prep

I welcome suggestions from you! Please reply to this post and let me know how I can best accommodate your interests.

Thanks so much for following my blog!

Why My Blog Posts Are Usually Brief

blog-word-cloud1Back in December of 2012, I made a promise to myself that I would have a blog post on this site every day, and have kept my promise with only a couple of days which I purposely skipped as an experiment. I like the consistency of posting daily because it keeps me focused. If I didn’t commit to such a schedule, my blog posts would probably be quite erratic because I am so incredibly busy all the time. However, because of the frequency of my posts, I really don’t have the time to develop lengthy entries, so the majority are quite brief and serve as overviews rather than as detailed analyses. Another reason why I tend to post shorter blog entries is because people with busy schedules tend to prefer reading shorter posts. Lastly, it is a challenge to come up with fresh material all the time!

I welcome suggestions from my readers on topics you would like to have me cover. What would you like to read about? Would you like to see more exercise videos or product reviews? Please reply to this post with suggestions, and I will do my best to accommodate them!

Readers’ Survey: What Do You Want Me To Post?

I would love to hear what YOU would like to see and read about on my blogsite! I will continue to post daily, and since that is quite a challenge, I may continue to use a similar mix of post types. However, I am always looking for topics and truly want to address the interests and needs of my readers, so feel free to post comments here with suggestions on topics.

I also want to thank each and every one of you for following my blog! It means a great deal to me and I am truly grateful.

2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
