It’s a simple question: Why do you read this blog? You can answer in the comments section below, or, send me an e-mail.
Actually, I understand why some read it – because they like it. And, that’s the reason why I read other blogs.
But, what I don’t get are those who read this blog, and read it all the time, who then complain about it.
I see it when other blogs link to me with comments like “Surprise, this guy had this opinion,” etc. And, I see it when they send me e-mails telling me that I’m a hater, and/or, a hack, and/or, my all-time fav, “not a true-Yankee-fan.”
And, I see it on Twitter, when, the second after I make an entry to WW, the twitter-livers start fluttering like a bunch of grade school girls in the playground during recess with these types of exchanges:
ferengi @Skolnick OMG, he’s at it again! WW link
Skolnick @ferengi @Hikikomori I know, when I saw it, my crazy straw fell out of my mouth.
Hikikomori @Skolnick That’s why I told him that I stopped reading him.
ferengi @Hikikomori Stopped?
Hikikomori @ferengi Yeah, I just read him once a day now instead of a few times a day.
Skolnick @ferengi @Hikikomori I stopped too. Now, I only read him now thru iPhone feeds and twitter when he updates, but, I refuse to go to his site!
ferengi @Skolnick I like it when his commentors call him names.
Hikikomori @ferengi @Skolnick I want to comment there and troll but I ran out of e-mail addresses to register with.
It’s a mystery to me. There are blogs out there that I have found difficult to enjoy – either because I don’t like the writing style, or, I find them boring and/or self-indulgent…or, for whatever reason. And, you know what? After I decided that they were not to my liking, I stopped reading them. They’re gone – off my radar. Why would I spend any time on something that I don’t enjoy? Why would anyone? And, that’s what I don’t understand.
So, if you read this blog for some reason other than because you like it, I’d welcome your feedback as to why you read it. Thanks!
