Enjoy! Or, better yet, tell me why you didn't.

The layout is very clean and organized. The only thing I would suggest is maybe breaking your material down into smaller bites.

Your font size seems to be too large for your line spacing?

I didn't read "A Different World" because the font was distracting and making my eyes go wonky; but "The Super Youth Commercial" was hysterical. I left a comment on your blog. Your writing is vivid, funny and very believable. I look forward to reading more.

That was a fantastic comment, thank you.

For your viewing pleasure, I've adjusted the font on "a different world."

I was able to get through the entire reading of "A Different World." I think that if you speak the way you write, you must be an excellent story teller. Your words have the ability to capture and hold the attention of it's reader, I know it did for me. You have a great gift for describing a scene or character and making it very real and vivid. I can actually picture it in my mind; like t.v. in my head. lol. I look forward to reading more.

I love the crazy school stuff. Kinda reminds me of the International School in Broadstairs, only that was not as obviously kooky. If someone could shoot a fly-on-the-wall documentary, I would definitely watch it. :)

Calidore: I do, although people don't always want to listen to 1000 words. But yes, to answer your implied question, I am quite cool.

BigWords: I wish. I just powered through 4 seasons of the American Office, where in the place of a laugh track they just have one character (Jim, for the record) look at the camera and make a face. Since I saw it, I began doing that...except there is no camera. So I just look silly.

I don't know what your goals are about this blog. If you dream to make it a successful blog then you should post more often.
Your content is useful and I don't mind reading long entries if they contain useful information. You should add Feedburner option for the visitors. You can also put Sitemeter (it is free) for tracking your visitors.

Really I just use it to display my writing capabilities to potential employers. I try to post about once a week but I'm on vacation at the moment so don't really have time. I'll look into feedburner but I use google analytics, which provides me with a veritable treasure trove of information.

The blog design is fine, I am wondering of you are using your clip art legally. I would have to admit that although you make good points I think it is with a faint tang of moralising. You might want to also consider your own foibles a bit as well?

I have none.
