'There's No Rules With the Amish, That's Part of the Problem': A Few Things About Blogging Awesomely in Amish Country, with Bryan Allain
Bryan Allain is the latest fascinating individual to be featured here in the new brandonsneed.com series "A Few Things About..." He's excellent at blogging and hiding under laptops. He graciously agreed to talk blogging, sports (as the former author of the now-nonexistent Prayers For Blowouts blog), humor, Amish people, and why he keeps blogging even when it makes him like, no money.
I stumbled across him via his "The Noah's Ark According to the Office" post sometime last year, and have been following him ever since. He's also been kind enough to interview me on his podcast, The FreshPod, even though my younger brother plays for the Yankees and he's a Red Sox guy. That's love just like Jesus, I would imagine.
And I don't actually "know" him, except through the magic of the Internet. He lives up in Intercourse—yes, Intercourse—Pennsylvania, where he does something for some boring company and blogs in his free time. In the meantime, he has to deal with Amish people, their transportation-by-horse-and-buggy way of life, and thus when he jogs, he has to dodge the patties their horses often leave in his path.
Sorry. That was gross.
Anyway, I'll let him do the rest of the talking. I'm glad he decided to swing by ... although honestly, I'm not real sure why. Whatever the reason, it's always a good time. Enjoy.
