If you’re wondering about the odd image left, it’s called The Rule Breaker by John Alexander and, as any rule breaker will tell you, the principal pleasure in rebelliousness is in knowing what the rules are so you can deliberately flaunt them.
Which is why I’m grateful to The Pink Windmill for pointing me towards these ten rules of blogging. I now know that I have inadvertently broken every one of them, apart from No. 6 “The Calendar is the Only Navigation” but only because I don’t have a bloody calendar. No. 10 is my brief nod to compliance.
I’m certainly guilty of Information Pollution:
Excessive word count and worthless details are making it harder for people to extract useful information. The more you say, the more people tune out your message.
So now that I know what the rules are, I shall happily ignore them safe in the knowledge that my rule-breaking harms no-one, other than to irritate the hell out of the po-faced rule makers.
