Assorted Pastries

Posted on Updated on

Since this is a Leap Day, and it occurs only once every four years, I decided to do something special. To commemorate this day, I’m going to ask you a question.

If a blog is started on the internet and no one is around, does anyone read it? 

Obviously, questions such as this one have haunted internet users for decades. I have another one for you; if I started another blog, would you subscribe to it? Well, it’s time to find out!

Yesterday, whilst drinking tea and staring contemplatively at a jar of peanut butter, I had an idea. This is not to say that I don’t usually have ideas, but this particular light bulb seemed brighter than most. I decided to start a reader-based blog! The concept is simple. Think of a slightly sarcastic, parody advice column. Now, put that column in a blog. Finally, try to imagine an elephant crossed with a zebra.The zebraphant has nothing to do with the blog.

The thing is, I need you, my loyal readers, to participate! If you’ve already subscribed to this blog, I encourage you to also do so on the new blog. If you haven’t subscribed here, shame… shame… In order for this idea to work, I’ll need people to submit questions! If you like the idea, I encourage you to tell your friends on Facebook or Twitter and try to get them to subscribe and ask questions! In the future, I also plan on taking reader-submitted question/answer posts. So, without any further ado, I give you: Assorted Pastries.Hopefully you’ll enjoy the experience. Don’t forget to subscribe and tell your friends!
Have a marvelous Leap Day,

    What a positively brilliant idea… I think. I mean, you kinda lost me at jar of peanut butter. I can’t help but be distracted by my favorite food. But I think I’ve got the gist of this… I’m still a little confused about the name. Assorted Pastries? I’m guessing this has something to do with pop-tarts… of course, seeing as it’s your invention it must some way be related to pop-tarts, so I guess that’s a silly question. lol

      Everything is related to Pop Tarts here… =D The real question is, smooth or crunchy Peanut Butter?

      Well… if I’m having a sandwich, crunchy adds some texture. If I’m eating it from a spoon, creamy is best. Still, this is prone to change based on mood, so I really can’t give a final answer at this moment. It may just be the fact that I haven’t had peanut butter in over three months, so I’d be happy with just about any form of the stuff at this time.

    Chris, I won’t be submitting any questions, but I’ll be dropping by on a regular basis to see what sport you make of those who do.

    What?! This will have nothing to do with a zebraphant? Then I am storming out of here! JK. Sounds like a very fun premise, Chris. I can’t wait to see what materializes.

      Haha, not this time. Although, I was asked to explain a zebraphant’s nose size over on Assorted Pastries… Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to drop a question in the box sometime. 😀

    Brilliant idea Chris. Would love to visit this site as often as I could. And eeiy, I hope I’m correct but are you word-playing with Associated Press on your AP Assorted Pastries? LOL! That one lit up my bulb also and made me laugh! 🙂

      Why, thank you! I hope you stop by often! The acronym matching was not the main intention of the name, but I did think about that when I made it. Glad you think it’s funny. Have a good one! 😀

    It looks like a great read! From what I see there is an article about time travel and a picture of a Ferrari on the front page. As a guy this has sparked my attention.
