This Blog Post: A Critical Review

This blog post is unusual in that it’s actually a critical review of itself. It opens with a simple statement of what makes it different from other blog posts, and then in the second sentence it provides a summary of all but the last sentence in the post. The third and final sentence opens with a less-than-subtle allusion to the author’s own loss of interest in the post’s “gimmick”; reveals the author’s doubts about whether the word gimmick¬†really ought to be enclosed in quotation marks; and then correctly observes that overall the post’s principle virtue is that it is short.
