Does this Post Constitute Good* Blogging?

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.  -Wayne Gretzky

-Michael Scott

Thanks to this NBC still that’s invaded my broadband, I was given the opportunity to read the quote from last week’s episode of The Office at my own speed and on my own time.

After some reflection, it’s not so much the quote that I like, but the way it’s framed. The Michael Scott brackets around the Wayne Gretzky parentheses reminds me of what most people, including myself, pass off for blogging, i.e. recycling content.

Even this post proves my point perfectly.  I’ve simply taken an image, transcribed the words included in that image, and I’ve posted it on TOE.  So, the new quote would look something like this:

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.  -Wayne Gretzky

-Michael Scott

-TOE

Is there any good in what I’ve done?  Sure, I’ve brought an image to TOE readers that they may never have seen otherwise by adding an additional bracket, but is there any good in that?

*By good I mean a combination of useful, novel, and entertaining.
