First of all, thank you for choosing one of my posts to be Freshly Pressed. That was very nice of you, and I appreciate your not holding my fondness for swearing against me.
I just have one teeny, tiny issue. It’s about that Le Clown guy. You knew this was coming, right?
See, he and I are actually friends. In real life even. So I may be a wee bit biased here.
Sure, I wrote about how you should NEVER, EVER Freshly Press him. But come on, you didn’t think I was serious, did you?
You’ve read his work. You know he can be deranged at times. It’s part of his charm. But he’s written many posts that are FP-friendly.
Like today’s post, for instance. Or one of my personal favorites, the one about the epic struggle between his inner Kirk and his inner Spock. Or the posts where he reflects on the challenges he has faced throughout his life—and by the way, he has overcome enough challenges to put him up there with Mr. Weebles in the Fucking Badass category.
Then there are the posts about his family. The beautiful, loving odes to his wife, The Ringmistress, who is a wonderful blogger herself. The stories about his children. I’d link to some of these but there are JUST TOO MANY.
Also, what blogger has done more for the blogosphere than Le Clown? The contests, the guest posts, the shoutouts to other bloggers? In a very short time, he’s created not just a huge presence, but also a very substantial blogging community. He’s the real deal.
So come on, WordPress peeps, it’s time to Freshly Press this guy. You know you want to.
