Weighing My Options and Summer Thoughts

I've been doing a lot of blog related thinking and planning recently and I have realized that there are quite a few different directions to take the blog in. Over the past year I added a few other contributors and I want to know how the readers felt about that. Did you enjoy having more contributors? Of course Corey graduated so he won't be writing here, but I have been thinking of adding another writer or two. I have a few people in mind, one of whom has already expressed interest. What do you think? Have you, the readers, enjoyed having other contributors? Would readers like to see more contributors or should I fire them all? (Just kidding!)

I feel that the other writers only add to the blog since I maintained my normal blogging status. I know the decision is mine and I started this blog for my own fun, but it has become more than that. It has become more about the readers and the UNH student community. More writers does mean more work for me, more people to keep track of, but it also means more content and more variety. I am willing to take on a more managerial responsibility, on top of my writing, for the good of the blog if that is what the readers want. Seriously, what do you think? Help me, help you! Should I look into expansion, or keep the blog where it's at?

The final decision is mine, and mine alone, but I would appreciate your input.

Either way, I am very excited for the fall semester to start. I mean, how that fuck is it only July? There are so many unanswered questions I have waiting to be solved, like: Will the dining halls have salt shakers? Will dining hire a hit-man to take me out? Who will SCOPE get for a homecoming comedian and other shows? (Speaking of SCOPE, I have an entire post for/about them that will be up in another few days, so check back for that...)  What will President Huddleston tweet next? Will I get reported to the conduct office again? Will people keep reading the blog? Will I finally taste a beer? (I can't even type that with a straight face.) When will the oil leak be plugged? (Dear BP, FUCK YOU!) How will our athletic teams fair? Who will step up to replace Bobby Butler? (My money is on Stevie Moses and Greg Burke.) What shenanigans will UMass and Maine get into so I can mock them?

Ah, so many questions, so many questions...  I am excited and I hope you are too. Less than two more months, we can do this. Believe.

Stay classy, not UMassy.


  1. i enjoy reading your posts way more than those of the other writers.

  2. i agree with the first comment.... was better with just you....

  3. more writers can be good, just monitor them more closely. lady meows game got old quick...

  4. Drop lady meow -- she's way below your blogging level. Or add another girl writer who shows that the women at UNH aren't all crude, dumb biddies. I'm sorry for being harsh but that's what her posts convey. I liked Corey's -- adding someone with his wit would be nice. But I also liked it when it was a one-man blog.

  5. ps. she made this blog take the fuck off.

    pps. new hampshirite is probably a virgin anyways.
