Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

In many cases, a good design is as important as the content.  You can take the lamest thing and wrap a snappy logo design around it, and it immediately gains appeal and possesses some sort of credibility, albeit superfluous.   Take the Spice Girls for instance.

Similarly, a fantastic idea shrouded in bad form or not marketed correctly might not ever get taken seriously.  Take Betamax for instance.

This concept of uplifting style above substance is one of humanty’s Big Flaws.  We do it all the time – commercials, religions, personal image, writing, products we buy, and portions of everything we can touch and see.  In today’s busy world, we naturally gravitate to the stylish because it’s simply too much work to sift through all the dirt and noise and actually discern the quality content from the crap that surrounds us.

When a thing can *mean* something significant (substance) and look fabulous doing it (style), you then have something worth your time.

But is substance and style enough?  I think not.  I think there is something to be said for functionality as well.  Although there is a saying that goes “anything worthwhile doing requires effort” it doesn’t mean we can’t make things easier on ourselves.

It is with these concepts in mind that I bring you…. The begbar.

announcing the begbar at the blog of whall

It’s conveniently placed above this and every post, right there at the top of the page.  The blog of whall now offers 24×7 begging.

It’s got the substance (pleas for help or assistance), it’s got the style (oooh, so suave and sexy!) and it’s got the functionality (it’s right there at the top and you just click on the item(s) you care about).

Most blogs have certain staples that hold them together – a header and footer, for example.  Most also sport various ‘bars’ like the sidebar, a navbar, a toolbar, a linkbar, and in some exceptional cases, an open bar (where is that link again?). I thought about calling this the “plea-bar” but I thought someone might make fun of it (plea bar again, anyone?)

I hereby populate my inaugural begbar with my latest lolacola submission beg for votes and my pepsistuff codes beg button.

“Help me… help you… help me.”

Visit the begbar and use it often. For the whall you save might be, well, me!

So, what do you beg for?
