This is the Anniversary Edition. The Gally Blog’s one year Anniversary and we were told to do a re-introduction/commemorative post from the first year TGB has been in service. I take special pride in this because a year ago, when I first started, I was an awful writer who bounced around a lot rather than take direction and write something worth while. I was getting bored with blogging and just using it for an outlet to comedic writing, but I could barely keep my personal life out of it. Then, Gally and Gimp came along and had an idea for a cool blog…
I was just fired from a Fantasy Footall blog that I wrote for, for about a week. I was fired because their sponsors got reports of my works elsewhere…That elsewhere was here and that piece? Yes. The first Using Logic piece was born. Soon after our magical beginning, we picked up sex kitten Amber Jones.
This is where things picked up for us, in general. We made a few internet friends and connections within the blogging/sports industries. The Roast of Brett Favre was one of the articles that I can say I’m truly proud of, mostly because a rival blog (owned by Asian Midget, Shakey) decided to swagger jack us and begin doing roasts. I always believed that you aren’t somebody until someone is trying to be you. The Roast of Favre was one of the funner/more creative posts and I enjoyed getting inside character’s heads to fuck with the main character and other writers.
Also from around this time came my personal rivalry. My “Parallelogram Post” really pushed some buttons on a 16 year old Jewish kid from Florida that REALLY loves Philly sports and has a HUGE mouth. On his site, he FJM’d my random satire piece and called me the un-funniest person on the Internet. Amongst other things.
I calmed down for a bit and had a HUGE week. After an awesome interview with Kyle Turley and a podcast for House of Punte at KSK (I was episode 28), I felt big enough that I should pursue my passion, stand up comedy:
So that’s where I’m at right now. Just on the grind. I own and operate my own blog on top of writing for TGB whenevever possible. I am a busy man. I work 40+ hours of work and now I’m also doing stand up comedy. It’s been a crazy run so far and I’ve gone a lot further with blogging than I ever thought possible. There, BWBIV, can I be a panelist now?
