THE FAQ YOU DIDN'T ASK FOR

So, as most of you undoubtedly know, FAQ stands for frequently asked questions. In fact, none of these questions have been asked by anyone. Not even once. It just seemed like a good way to let everyone know what this blog is/isn't going to be like. Probably I should have done this earlier, but I felt that the blog was becoming little more than a blog about a blog.


Q: How often will you update Tyrannosaurus Ranch?
A: As of right now, my plan is to post on a semi-weekly basis. 


Q: But weekly is not frequent enough; can't you update it more often?
A: I can and probably will, at times. Other times, much as it pains me to say it, I might even go longer than seven days between posts. It's not a set schedule, just a general guide.


Q: But why?
A: Because I don't want to beat people down with lackluster daily updates that are of no interest to them--I'd much rather do so on a weekly basis. Also, writing this thing takes time.


Q: Why is your blog called Tyrannosaurus Ranch?
A: Because Tyrannosaurus Ranch is a bitchin' name. And I love dinosaurs.


Q: I typed your name into Google and this blog was not the first result, what's up with that?
A: Well, hopefully in the future, that will change. As of right now this phenomenon is a result of me stupidly calling this blog "Tyrannosaurus Ranch" and not "David Afsharirad's Blog." You see, when you search my name, Google looks for websites that have my name on them a bunch. This one does not. In order to remedy that, I will now type my name several dozen times. Feel free to skip this part.

Q: Why did you throw Richard Nixon's name into that list?
A: The reasons for this were threefold: To see if you read the entire list; to break up the monotony of writing my own name that many times; and because I feel this blog has a lot to offer both fans and detractors of our 37th President.


Q: What topics will be covered on Tyrannosaurus Ranch?
A: The writing career of David Afsharirad will hopefully be an ever-increasing part of this blog. In other words, I'll be using it as promotion for my literary endeavors--letting people know when I've got stories coming out and where, when I make the first multi-million dollar book sale, etc. You know, that sort of thing. Aside from the shameless self-promotion, I'm sort of thinking about these posts as little mini-essays. Some will be of a personal nature, others about a broader range of subjects. Writing will, no doubt, be covered.


Q: What about politics?
A: Politics and its good buddy religion will be pretty much off the table. There's nothing more a beating than reading someone else's opinion on either subject unless you specifically sought them out for that purpose (which you did not, in this case).


Q: I have a legitimate question I would like to ask, and I didn't see it on your fake questions list, what can I do?
A: Ask it in the comments section.


Q: This blog is awfully text-y, will you ever post awesome/funny videos?
A:
