Gilbert, like many of the more successful of my generation, spends his time behind a desk I assume, but like all who were raised in these NYC communities the career takes less priority over his dreams. A simple paycheck is not as important as: The International Rules, A blog he and two others work diligently on. If you're having problems with one of the common obstacles in life, be they your new overpriced non-functioning iphone, or if you for some reason forgot how to wipe your ass The International Rules will be there to remind you how to properly function. And bloggers, if you are looking for some good advice or just a laugh involving how to write a blog, that's how it is, or isn't done.
He writes a damn good blog, and neither he nor the co-authors take a vacation from writing it. Putting forth a solid effort with any mission is something that deserves an award, or some recognition. He aims to have a book published with his rules and lessons of 100, thusly keeping a vision and theme to the outstanding blog.
So I award thee, Gilbert and his cronies, the NYC taxi photo award of diligence and Kissassary.
He found my blog interesting as well and wrote a post, even though it strayed a little from the theme of his blog. The post was published late on Monday, and the very next day my name appeared in the City Room section of The New York Times!!!! with a link to his blog post.
That day my readership doubled compared to the previous days of the week.
