I am driven by greed. Greed and elf meat and filthy hobbitlust. Behold a dead end on the blogformation gokart raceway: Tolkien and Lord of the Rings News.
My plan was to create a niche blog covering something "fun" that wouldn't make me "want to shoot myself" after a week. Enter GoogleAds, enter money$, enter my ass in a Hype Williams video. Really though, I'm just looking for creative ways to finance the ol' Blogumentary. Busting open truckstop condom machines with my Wusthof just ain't cutting it.

But guess what? Google denied me on account of "Excessive profanity." Do I really swear that much? I can find plenty of foul language alongside other GoogleAd blogs. I can also find foul language on Ev William's super awesome shirt, but thankfully his shirt doesn't have ads.

Really though, excessive profanity? Sure, i throw out an effenheimer and an "ooo geez!" if I get really excited. Maybe I talk too much about this search result.* Oh well, there are too many LOTR news sites anyway. Perhaps... robots?

* Ack! I've been knocked down to #2. Perhaps this link will help: Scarlett Johansson's Pussycat Dolls. Rawwwr.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I ALMOST STARTED A HOBBIT BLOG:


1) I don't expect the husband has ever thought to do that with his Wusthofs.

2) Did Google's email say anything like "Chollie is a big ole pottymouth" and suggest you have your mouth washed out with soap? Maybe if Lorika took care of that last bit they'd reconsider your application.

3) I'm just fueling the fire but you can find larger versions of some of those pix, without a WireImage membership, here. Enjoy!

Jeezum crimminey...I was almost mesmerized enough to click Sharon's link at work. The power of the Johansson is strong here. Dangerous and powerful it is.
