Your Opinion Is Worthless

You know, I'm sure I'm not the first one out there to notice that the first thing people tend to do when they start writing a blog is rattle off their worthless opinions on various subjects they happen to find interesting. And with good reason. Writing stuff is hard, having an opinion is easy. Writing about your opinions happens to fall under the rare category of things that are both easy to write and get people's attention with. Honestly, the only thing more effective at attracting people to a website are pornography and pictures of cats with funny captions underneath them. Which one of those things is more perverse, I'll leave up to you to decide.

When I decided to start this blog, I made a promise to myself that I would never write a post based on my personal opinions. Sure I could give my opinions on subjects, but I could never let that become the point of one of my posts. No matter what I should always include something new and interesting in the discussion. Something original that I came up with, that sheds new light on the subject, or at the very least gets a laugh. Instead I just wrote two paragraphs about why I never should have written these two paragraphs in the first place. I hate myself sometimes...
