Pampered readers

Hello readers of my blog,

I am flattered that you have come to my blog one more time. Having had a tumultous month, I need to have a near personal conversation with you. I wish to talk to you regarding some issues about my blog.

My blog's quality does not measure in any predictable scale to any of the other blogs that I read. That you can blame it on my incompetance as a writer, but as the person who knows me better, I think I should not write any better.

As readers of blogs, you would have seen writers pandering to the readers. Like if they have cute babies, they put their pictures up every now and then to "oooh" and "aaaaw" at their blog. (Boo you should realize that I am jealous of your baby pictures but I was not really talking about you!) Or worse are those cat blogs, those obnoxious little cute things, just pushes me a little bit closer to calling the SPCA on them... for using innocent pets for personal gratification. hmmmmm...

The reader might realized the real reason for my "This months's bitching" post. I do not have a cute baby, or a cute pet or a cute me to sell. My blog is not about a theme, a central object of continous attention that will numb your senses in vain attempts at appearing cute with a fiendish agenda to attract more comments. The question is, are you reading that blog because it gives you a enriching experience or are you reading that blog because it empathises your intellectual slumber and tells you what you want to hear.

I do not pander to you. If you hate my blog: good, if you like my blog: great, if you realize that you do not understand even the title of my blog: amazing. Good, now we know where we are. In my near neurotic attempt at confuting your moral blog beliefs, I know I cannot succeed by calling you names. Yet, I shall proceed.

So you see, I write these confusing halfling posts only to decenter any faithful readers. Whenever I want to take an English dump, whenever I develop an unacceptable philosophical pressure, an unappreciated joke, I write in my blog. I am sure everybody is like that. So we blog readers are scavengers, reading off everyone's daily by-product. Considering the previous sentence I think I am sleepy. But I still want to continue.

So, even though I do not have a healthy public readership, I will continue my blog for my personal mental well-being. If you readers can appreciate that with your comments, I would be most welcome.

Nah, i like reading your blog. In my opinion, blogs are like a hobby that no one can really judge. You don't get paid to blog and you don't pay to blog, so i don't think anyone has a duty to keep a healthy readership, it's just about writing what you want to write and expressing what you want to express! I think your doing an exellent job of it!

That's why many bloggers blog!

Hello kiddo - if you call us names, we'll respond in kind. Incidentally this was your best ever post! (in my opinion)

When the words come forth honest and straight from the heart (no pretensions) they strike a chord with the reader. Readership/popularity is a by-product.

And to be honest with you - what the hell does the title of your blog mean?
