Don’t call it a comeback…

I’ve been here for years. ๐Ÿ™‚ And the blog has been here. There just hasn’t been much interaction in a while. But that’s changing. I’ve missed writing, and I often have ideas that I jot down to write on sometime in the future. Well, the future is here! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re curious what happened, I had children and free time approached zero, so quite a few optional activities were cut back. Life is still busy, but I’m going to allocate some time for sharing randomness and humor. The world certainly needs to laugh more these days!

So what have you missed? Well, not much in terms of new content being posted, which is unfortunate. However, the blog surpassed ONE MILLION page views, which is quite the accomplishment considering there has never been any paid advertising for it. (I suppose this is my 15 megabytes of fame.) ๐Ÿ™‚

There’s something else that was missed around here, and that’s the community. It wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun without the witty comments (and I’ll acknowledge the bad puns, too). There were a lot of “inside jokes” that were funny on their own but even better for the regulars here. And the cast of recurring characters who appeared in the comment section were definitely unique. (I wonder if that “Important Evil Genius” is still aroundโ€ฆ obviously he hasn’t taken over the world yet.)

I also recently remembered the free-for-all stories and re-read them, and there is nothing else like that. Most other stories are somewhat predictable, but these are not in any way predictable! Even the people writing on it had no idea what was going to happen in the next paragraph beyond theirs. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you haven’t read them, it’s a good time.

Memes have become quite popular, which are somewhat like the caption contests we used to have here (filed under “Say What?”), except memes have the joke/humor printed on the picture instead of in the comments. I always enjoyed the caption contests because someone else seeing the exact same picture would think of something hilarious that I never would’ve thought of, and sometimes one funny comment would lead to another. Plus there were sometimes references to the “inside jokes” I mentioned earlier with recurring characters and stories.

Hopefully all of you subscribers will stay for the show and participate in the comments. The upcoming posts will be along the lines of what was here before — although, the theme is “randomness”, so it could be anything, but that’s the fun of it, right?

      I don’t know, I’ve been here for years. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m fairly certain I’m not invisible (though I am indivisible).

      But the internet is a big place…

      Either way, I’m glad you found Buffet o’ Blog. Hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to flex your writing muscles in the comments section, even on an old post — I read them all and display recent comments in the sidebar to help the regular readers keep up with what’s new. Maybe you would enjoy the caption contests (“Say What?”) where you try to explain an unusual photo in an amusing way. How much of a story can you tell in a paragraph or less? (Plus, the picture is worth a thousand words, so that’s a huge head start!)
