Now, I can imagine how this title got you interested in finding out about what is hidden beneath it. It's quite a headline and the statement is anything but subtle, right? Well, it so happens that it's as true as anything can be. When I saw it presented on the infographic myself, I was probably as intrigued as you are now. It's a bold statement that needs explanation. So, as you might have figured out, this infographic is called Blogging Is Like Sex, and it will take you through the comparisons to make it clear to you how such a creative task as blogging could ever be compared to sex at all.
When I first started to write the title for this article, I was a little bit hesitant to leave it as it is. I asked myself whether I should put "NSFW" on it as to not make people angry over it. But since there are no images in the article that might set off a landslide of complaints, I decided on the thought, what harm can a title do, right? After all, it only speaks of a very inspiring and dedicated approach to blogging, and how it could be compared to sex.
Blogging is a very labor intensive trade, and you need to stay focused when writing or you will find yourself in the middle of an empty room echoing in silence since your topics will be not only undressed and lacking initiative, but also missing the point of blogging as a whole. You have to feel what you write. You have to be dedicated to the topics and not pick subjects that you feel are out of your attention span, if you know what I mean.
For us here at Bit Rebels, we always pick subjects that are very dear to our hearts or that we feel are right in the scope of what we are interested in writing about. Sure, maybe not all of our articles are dedicated to the utmost seriousness of the world, but we remember every single one as if they were a memory worth treasuring. So, when you blog, make sure that you are intensely interested in both writing as well as in the subject you write about. Without passion, your blog or article will become quite useless to all the people who will most likely check it out. Blogging is like sex because the passion needed to fully complete the task is the most important ingredient in the whole endeavor. It's not rocket science, it's actually quite simple. Passion is the equivalent to creativity and dedication. Agree? (Infographic created by GenY Medium)

If you experienced the '80s, you know that during that decade there were a lot of things that inspired us, and there were also things that made us positive and ultimately annoyed. The first is kind of easy to understand, but the annoyance of the '80s could be one of the harder ones to figure out. What exactly made us annoyed and why? Well, it's not quite as difficult to understand as you might think since the fact is that we could all predict what was to come in the future when it came to Internet speed, content and experiences. We could have predicted it in the most accurate of ways, but we didn't have the technology to take us there yet. That is what has been developed in the years since then. Now that we are here, we can marvel over the retro ways things worked back then. It's quite an interesting paradox if you ask me.
If you were among the lucky ones, you remember the BBS (Bulletin Board System) approach to communities, software sharing and all kinds of fun things. However, back then we had our baud modems and they made a noise that has been imprinted in our minds ever since. It so happens that there is a new site called Google BBS Terminal that will enable you to do searches on Google while the site looks and operates as if it were available back in the days when the Internet was still in its infancy.
It's a surreal experience that will retrotouch anyone who experienced the dial-up connections in the '80s. It's quite well done as well, and I find myself making searches for the most ridiculous things just for the fun of it. It makes me think that the site only indexed sites that were available in the '80s as well, and not the wide millions and millions of sites that are available today. Whether that is true or not, I don't know, but it would certainly make perfect sense. Have a go and let yourself be retrofied for a second time. It's way worth the amount of time to dial up since that is exactly what it will simulate when you first log into the site. This is just maddening cool… and a little bit annoying,

I've been writing about tattoos on Bit Rebels since 2009. The funny thing is, I don't have any tattoos. I keep saying I'm going to get one, but it's such a big commitment, and I haven't found a design yet that I would want on my body forever. Someday I will find something just right, and then I will finally take the plunge. That day is going to be really special.
There are all kinds of different tattoo styles, and some of them will blow your mind. You can do a search on this site and see many of them. Some people choose to create their own tattoo designs, some people decide on a whim to get something popular, and others even go so far as to have a character from a movie tattooed on their body.
A few months ago, Richard wrote about some Amazing Photo Realistic Skin Illustrations which featured 10 tattoos that looked exactly like photos. It was insane to me that someone could create such an exact replica of a photograph on someone's skin in permanent ink. What an art! Today I'd like to share with you some more very realistic tattoos of characters.
These were created by artist Steve Wimmer who is relatively new to the tattoo scene. He's been working in this field since around 2006, but when you look at the accuracy of his work, he looks like he's been doing this for decades. In the video below, you'll see how he puts the photograph right next to the skin when he's working. Fascinating!
