This blog is now officially outsourced.

I am usually so full of ideas that I can write for days at a stretch. Well, maybe that is a minor exaggeration, but I think you get my point. I enjoy writing about things that other people find uninteresting or unimportant. I am a boring person to the core and am gladly willing to pass around my boringness.

So, you’ll understand why it is unnerving that I’ve been feeling a bit lethargic about writing these days. Not even Slate’s recent “write like Sarah Palin” contest could inspire me to pen a few lines chastising the mainstream “gotcha” media for misunderstanding freedom-loving Joe Sixpack as he peered down the cool, American-as-apple-pie, slope of Denali at baby-eating Vlad Putin for the sake of the God-bestowed-right to moose-kill and job-creation (minus capital gains tax) and it is got to do.

Well, fortunately I don’t actually have to write my blog anymore. I can outsource it to someone else! There is actually a website that will get someone to write my blog for me for a fee. The website mentions that “native English speakers” (as opposed to articulate English writers from the rest of the world) will write posts that are around 250 words on a topic of my choosing. I just provide the keywords and someone will actually keep adding posts to my blog. Voilà! It is that easy!

I have always wanted to write a critical assessment of post-modern views of the Socratic dialogue in Phaedrus just to show off my erudition, but have never found the time (or the erudition). Now, I can get someone else to write it for me. Why bother thinking and doing when you can pay someone else? Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?

Anyways, I think I should stop here. My post is way over 250 words and I don’t want the dolt who hired me to get any freebies.
