I’ll be painfully honest: in addition to enjoying the sound of my own voice, I really do like reading what I choose to express myself in writing. This blog is a great example.
I’ll be equally honest: I’m a bit disappointed that I haven’t got any serious replies to my blog posts – yet. That’s why I don’t get depressed. At least I am someone who’s entertained and enlightened by words I’ve penned. LOL, indeed.
So far, I’ve just gotten spam replies and solicitations, with a certain weekly regularity. I categorize them thusly:
– “Buy this app to increase the number of people who will see your website” (the most honest of the bunch – no pretense)
– “I notice your website could use more original writing – buy this app to get more fresh original content!” (What??? It’s ALL original!)
– (sic)”obviously like your website but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will certainly come back again”
I think that last reply is rife with grammar problems and poor word usage, to say nothing of the fact that they didn’t notice I’d used spell-check on the post they replied to. I may respond to them and sell them “Zunardo’s fool-proof app for making sure you don’t look like an idiot when you spam me”. It’s on sale for a low, low down payment, and only a $99.99 service fee per month. And believe, I’m selling that baby cheap.
Yes, I am tempted to leave them on there and make it look as if my blog is active and click-worthy. However, my upbringing reminds me to make sure I tag them all as spam. It’s easy to tell that’s what they are, even the ones that are subtle, because they never refer to anything in the post itself.
But what of the future of Zunardo Sez? Will anyone actually read the gorilla’s posts and reply in the pure interest of actual discussion? Stay tuned next week to this blog. Don’t touch that URL!
In the meantime, dear readers, what interesting experiences do you have regarding blogs, either running your own and filtering out the riff-raff, or getting into an interesting discussion through a blog post? I’d love to hear from you, just click on “Leave A Reply” at the top right. (NOTE: NO spam or solicitations, those will be deleted with extreme prejudice)
That’s all for now. Until next time, express yourself while choosing your words carefully, and keep your best voice forward. Take care.
