These aren’t the droids you’re looking for

Okay, so you searched for something on the web, clicked on it and now you’ve arrived at this page. Unless you specifically searched for the movie quote, “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for”, you’re probably not where you want to be. But that’s okay, there’s probably a million other pages that’ll give you what you want. In the meantime, why not take a look through the pages I have to offer? I may not be the best writer in the world (I may not be the best anything in the world), but you’ll probably enjoy one or two things from all the things I tend to write about – just go to the article list or one of the categories of the drop down list in the navigation bar above.

Why Droids?

C-3PO and R2-D2 - droids

Why not? That quote is from the first Jedi mind trick I saw in the first Star Wars movie ever produced, before an episode number was added to it. Yes, I’m that old (I was 16 at the time).

I’m not a big Star Wars fan and I haven’t seen all the movies. Some of the movie quotes are awesome, though, regardless of where I heard them and when. This one about the droids has to be the most awesome. It’s been quoted in other movies and TV series more times than I can remember.

Judge me by my size, do you?

That Yoda quote says it better than I can. There isn’t a lot to read on this website. I’m in the process of pointing hundreds of removed articles from an old website to this one. That website had over 2,000 pages on it at one time and when I’m done, it’ll have none. What I write here is 100 percent original and 100 percent me. The old site was neither of those things. Sure, most of it was original and most of it was me, but I had some other authors contributing content where I had no way of knowing whether it was original or not. Not without spending more hours than I cared to spend anyway.

I already have hundreds of those removed articles pointing to my article list, which is every article on this website, excluding the stand-alone pages you can find in the sidebar. I’ll be re-pointing them to this article instead, as fast as I can do it without pulling my hair out. Since I don’t have any droids to help me, it’s going to take me a while to get it all done.

Of course I have ulterior motives!

The article list is nothing more than a page listing all the chronological links on this website. There’s very little text on it, other than the links. People who land on that page tend to take one look at that page and just leave. They don’t get a chance to read anything worthwhile or rather, choose not to.

By redirecting old links to this page, I’m giving you a chance to see how I tend to write my articles. That in itself could spark your desire to read more. Or maybe not. Regardless, I’m trying to showcase just a little of my writing “talent”. All without the help of any droids.
