You sit down in the computer for a few minutes, hoping to whip up a quick blog post. Then an idea hits you. It’s vague at first, but it has a certain sparkle of possibility. You start constructing a post, becoming more convinced with every word that you’re onto something...

Fair warning about "drunkenness" - it’s always good to have a driver for a sober second thought.

You get drunk even faster if you compose your blog posts with something like Dragon NaturallySpeaking software.  The words can really take off.

The 10 drafts sitting in my queue is definitely a testament to the correctness of this post. Sometimes a post truly is great, and sometimes it’s just a hefty lady you happen to be staring at through beer goggles.

Wow, that’s a sobering post.  **rimshot!**See!  I should have run that humor past someone first!  I must be completely wasted!  I’ve been concerned about the quality at Copyblogger dropping since Brian has been handing the reins over more and more to guest bloggers (I’m guessing Teaching Sells is taking up much of his grey matter lately).  But this is a really excellent entry in a consistently strong blog.  :)

Posting "under the influence"...I wonder how often that actually happens?

And here I thought quitting drinking would keep me from posting stupid stuff on my blog. Now, I can get drunk on words? Awe Man!
