About The Big Sheep Blog

Why? Why do I toil, all alone yet endlessly amused, in the WordPress blogging fields?

Because it beats toiling in a real field, shoving scary genetically modified seeds into parched dirt full of contaminants that will mutate our collective DNA and ultimately spell the demise of the human race. Plus, I hate to sweat.

Why choose this medium to express yourself?

Because one can only express oneself so much with art comprised of stick figures; because my attempts at interpretive dance are likely to be interpreted as an indication of someone needing emergency medical attention; because it’s hard to pursue music when most of the time you prefer silence.

Why does writing this blog matter at all?

Because it allows me to judge people and things I find absurd under the guise of humor, purge sarcastic thoughts from my head, and it is far more cathartic and far less expensive than therapy. Oh, and it gets me off the hook when my mother says, “Lisa, you really should be writing something.” On the other hand, maybe it doesn’t matter at all – you decide.

  1. Enjoying your blog. You make small town life sound worth trying…especially for someone like me living in a large city with a lot of commuting time to content with on a daily basis.

    Signed up and look forward to reading more of your observations.

  2. Enjoying you!!!! Going to subscribe….. but not going to rush over to give you any work! Hopefully my subscription is enough motivation to come up with some more awesome creativity!!!

    • Subscribing is the highest form of flattery – thank you! You know, some of my family members may actually view my “awesome creativity” as an undiagnosed psychiatric condition, but I’m fairly certain I’m not a danger to myself or anyone else. Welcome!

  3. Just stumbled onto your blog, the Brady Bunch send-up is hilarious, and unfortunately, too close to modern reality. Will definitely be back!

  4. I’m notifying my favorite bloggers one by one, since I couldn’t figure out how to get links to work (I’m technically challenged) – You’ve been nominated by me for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you want to take advantage of this dubious honor… Write a post that mentions notquiteold as your nominator, nominate 15 other posts (a lot I know) and tell your readers seven things about yourself that they may not know. Congrats, and I love your blog.

  5. Hi Lisa, Well it’s my first time here. You were on a blog role of someone I stopped by this morning and I wish I could remember who now….but I’m glad to read your bio, of sorts, above, because you admitted to the sarcasm. I started my comment on your education post today saying how I loved the drip, drip, drip of sarcasm but didn’t want to be too, you know, forward, because I just met you. So now I can say it – love the drip, drip, drip of sarcasm in your writing.

  6. I’ve had a similar experience to yours. I’m a freelance journo – mostly business – and started my blog to talk about writing-related things to show how knowledgeable I was. Somewhere along the way it’s all gone horribly wrong: I’m now under the impression that I’m funny, and no subject is too obscure for me to subject to my wit. What happened?!

  7. Hi

    Im pretty new to all this blogging stuff and not sure how to progress im looking for an angle and direction to take this into, im trying to make my blog just be random and reflect what im thinking or doing at any particular time, can you give any tips on how to structure it a lot more, by the way yours is great!!

      • Thanks im finding it quite addictive if im honest! Could you do me a favour and comment on my blog just so i dont look like a total tool with no interest, also how do people generate any income through blogs?

      • First, if you’re in this for money, you’re wasting your time! WordPress.com does not allow you to post ads on your blog. Second, it takes a long time to develop a following and get people engaged enough to leave comments. Just be persistent and use tags on each posts so people will find you when they search for a certain topic.

  8. I may only be 13 but I love your blog so much! I love reading it and get so excited when you post something! Thank you so much for making me laugh!

  9. You probably didn’t realize standing on your head recharges the brain. Yoga is great for recharging our parts or for ensuring that no parts have fallen off (at least that’s what they tell me). I hope yoga has helped you reclaim any lost items. You possess a great wit and sense of humor. Keep on yoga-ing and blogging when you’re upright.

  10. Hi there! I have nominated you for the “Wonderful Team Readership Award!” I really enjoy reading your blog and feel you deserve some recognition! Have a wonderful day! :-D
