I just wrote a nice little blog post on the marketing of religions. A nice little blog post. But something went wrong when I hit the publish key and, hence, it didn’t publish. Instead, I lost the document.
Now, there are at least two ways of taking that sort of thing when it happens. The first way is to shed quiet tears over your loss, then move on.
The second way is to shamelessly use the occasion to insufferably brag about what a great document it was (now that all the evidence that could disprove such a bold claim is gone).
Which road is the high road? Which road would a dignified blogger take?
To hell with which road is the high road! And since when have I been a dignified blogger?
