Don’t you just hate it when people who don’t have much to say insist on writing anyway? They start out announcing that they do not have anything of news or entertainment value to share, and yet they continue to waffle on for a paragraph.
In fact, often they extend their useless monologue such that it spans two paragraphs – two paragraphs that inform the reader of nothing more than he/she knew before having clicked the internet address of writer.
Paragraph three drags on while the reader hopes for something vaguely attention-grabbing, with no satisfaction coming. The piece usually ends with the reader feeling duped; knowing that he/she would have been better served speaking to an irritating colleague or making tea.
