Welcome back, Pant Ranter here. Well itabcds been a long time since my last rant; I figured to be somewhat more introspective with this one in fact. Have you ever noticed that most people who start up and then religiously maintain a rant page are some of the most popular people on the Internet? (so long as they remain topical) and I want in.
Iabcdve made a list of essentials:
- First and foremost have an opinion. Now for a rant it needs to be naturally slanting towards the negative however not necessarily doom and gloom but it needs to be witty at the very least.
- Research, it lends an iota of credibility you donabcdt have to do deep analytical journalistic research because A. youabcdre not a news source and B. your reaction needs to have that visceral knee jerk.
- Make up a goofy nick name, or else youabcdre just another “nerd with a chip on his shoulder”, ironically that name may already be taken 😛
Now that Iabcdve imparted what undoubtedly is the abridged version of the unwriten laws of the web blog rant youabcdll be hearing again from me real soon.
