PodCamp Atlanta Homework

How can the ravages of the Russian nobility help you monetize your blog? (And no, it's not by reading incessant amount of Russian literature, as so many of my family members are way too fond of doing, to the point where I believe they actually imagine themselves to be historically ravaged members of the Russian nobility! But I diverge...)

Rather, you can follow the links (I'll let you do that work yourself since I'm way too lazy to explain it all here) on this interesting entry Your Show Itself Is Not The Money Maker by the PodCamp phenom founder, Chris Brogan.

And don't miss my "I'm such a Christian" pissing match with Will Hinton over at Peach Pundit. I love to sound-off on these "I'm a Christian" types, because it's always the morally vain who take the hardest tumbles from their I'm-soooo-holy vistas when our universal "human values" brutishly thump aside those divine "Christian" ones.

Human nature, being the inevitable that it relentlessly is, sure tacks towards hot babes, porn, gambling, greed, gluttony, drug abuse, lust, and more hot babes (Bishop Paulk), and hot men (for that other Evangelical preacher dude) with the "Christian Values" set.

Just don't want us common folk to be laughing too hard when the "Christian Values" kind hit the ground hard (and they always seem to collapse on their own mighty wind at some point in the game), as that just wouldn't be... uh... very Christian-like now would it?

And if human nature didn't consistently toss about its fiercely beautiful fiery fey head, then where in the world would we get all that glorious Russian literature?

Have fun with Will Hinton! He's the one who, back in December, told me I was being dogmatic because I said people should decide what's right for them as individuals. Suck on THAT nugget of non-logic for just a minute! Also there was some nonsense about me wanting to force children to watch porn or something. Anyway, enjoy... but, you know, consider the source.

Don't paint with such a broad brush Gracey. For every Earl Paulk and Ted Haggard there are Pastors who help feed the poor and comfort the distraught. Not all Christians are perverts. :-)

Buzz hon, as much as I adore you, you just gotta sling some paint with those Evangelical pastors. Too much great material to work with there not to! And of course we all know perfectly well that plenty of Christians do lots of fabulous things every day. Some of 'em even blog, for no money! Merely out of the kindness of their Little Christian (as oppsosed to those Big Christians) heart.

It's just whenever someone prefaces anything with that "I'm a Christian" kinda cliched babble, you just know that plain intellectual laziness will surely follow. Hypocrisy oft times too.

Oh yeah.... air kisses all around, Buzz. Amber too. (That is soooo not her style though!) Delighted to see you both here on the SGR.

Sort of like, "I'm not racist, but..."
