LonePlacebo: Brevity, LOLz Moments, and Quality Content

LonePlacebo over the past year

The three main goals I strive for at LonePlacebo is brevity, memorable LOLz moments, and quality content. Without brevity, our bounce rate will be equal to 100%. Without LOLz moments, the world will collapse. Without quality content, our web traffic will never surpass Google’s. I’m no politician, but I can promise you this: These three goals will be achieved.

Mission Statement


To teach and foster an interest in technology, web 2.0, current events, and social media.


How was the name LonePlacebo conceived?

I remember the day like it happened yesterday. I had just arrived back home after purchasing Grand Theft Auto 4 for PC and excitedly turned on my computer. During the hour-long download process (it’s a 16 gb game!), I was forced to create an account for Games for Windows Live. Unable to come up with a satisfying username, I recall typing out “placebo” just for the hell of it. “Sorry, that username is not available,” I was told. That’s when I saw it. Displayed in a list of suggested names incorporating the word placebo was “loneplacebo.” It was love at first sight. I felt a chill run through my spine and I knew right away it was the perfect fit.

When did you create the blog?

Who runs LonePlacebo?

LonePlacebo is currently a one-man show. The author is named Tony and likes to write in the third-person when he talks about himself. Among his various interests, he enjoys watching FAIL videos, laughing at LOLz cats, and making lame “That’s what she said!” jokes. Ladies, if you are interested, you know how to contact me.

What are your hopes for the future?

As of this moment, LonePlacebo is unhappily enjoined in matrimony with “wordpress” in its unholy domain name. Because of the author’s scarce financial resources, this blog will continue to drown in the gloom of lacking a self-hosted blog.

Thus, the day we strike it rich is the day you can finally enter loneplacebo.com into your browser’s search bar. Let us pray together now.

What are your plans for monetizing LonePlacebo?

That’s confidential information. If I told you, I would have to overwhelm you to death with “That’s what she said!” jokes.
