26, Male, Melbourne.
Well, hello there, it’s your lovable ruffian author!
Formerly of Tasmania, now living among the bright lights of the nations’ sporting capital.
Due to my distinct hatred of ‘bloggers’ and blogs in general, I recently made a wager with several of my friends (via email whilst at work, no less). They bet me $50 each that I wouldn’t be able to write a blog a day, every day, from July 1st, 2012 until December 29th, 2012 (the first day of the annual Falls Music Festival in Marion Bay, Tasmania.
I would only receive the money if I wrote a blog post of 400 words or more without missing a day.
The bet started small ($350 & 2 cartons of beer). As word spread of my ridiculous endeavour, I received more pledges. I ended up with $1400 & 2 cartons of beer pledged from several dozen kind souls.
I’m did this for the money. I stopped on December 29th, after successfully writing significantly more than 400 words per day for nearly 6 months. I received $1350 & a carton of beer. I’m still waiting for $50 bucks and the other carton, I’ll let you know when I get it.
I guess this has been a good experience…?
If you’re reading this for the first time, you are hereby cordially invited to come with me on a journey into the dingy back-alleys and seedy side-streets of my consciousness.
There’s a monkey bashing on a miniature drum-kit somewhere in there. The monkey has AIDS and the cymbals are rusted.
