The ArT of CoMmEnTs


Since, I only have a short lunch break today I will try and make this a small rant.

Yesterday, I had a total of 95 visitors to my site.

Let’s say 1/4 of them only made it to the front page and said “Oh, a blog, not what I wanted” and moved on. I can live with that.

That leaves approximately 71.25 people. Let’s say, 1/6 of them are either illiterate or can’t read English. K fine, just look at the pictures and learn later, I can deal.

That leaves approximately 59.375 people. Let’s say, 1/10 of them have busted keyboards and don’t feel like copying and pasting each letter with their mouse. Ok, I get that.

That leaves approximately 53.4375 people. Let’s say, 1/8 of them we’re taught by their parents that, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Ok sure, although, I’d recommend growing a back bone, I can still cope.

That leaves approximately 46.7578125 people. Let’s say, 1/4 of them were mysteriously abducted by Aliens or Bigfoot. It’s ok, you go ahead and fight the good fight. I can wait.

That leaves approximately 35.068359375 people. Let’s say, 1/8 of them just had their motherboard or hard drive blow up. You shouldn’t have bought the cheap computer but hey, you take all the time you need.

That leaves approximately 30.684814453125 people. Let’s say, 1/4 of them just finished either their daily 8 glasses of water intake / a bad TacoBell burrito and suddenly feel nature calling. You do what you gotta do man. I’ll be ok.

That leaves approximately 23.01361083984375 people. Let’s say, 1/4 of them are dog owners and Poochy’s itching for walkies. Who am I to stand in the way of owner pet bonding.

That leaves approximately 17.2602081298828125 people. Let’s say, 1/2 of them get propositioned by their spouses for activities more entertaining then commenting on my blog. It’s ok, I so get it. Knock yourself out.

That leaves approximately 8.63010406494140625 people.

Now these people, I KNOW, have nothing better to do than surf the internet.

All I’m saying is you could show a little more love people.

I mean someday, I might be one of those 8.63010406494140625 people browsing your blog and think yanno, I should leave this guy/gal some input. They might appreciate it. But instead just ghost em to tick em off.

You hear what I’m saying?

Just saying….

    Heh, the more I read this blog, the more joy it brings me. Especially when I find that it contains a rant I can wholly get behind. Yay for personal ego maniacal ranting.

    I am intrigued by your views and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    And here I thought me wife didn’t like math.

    That’s it, we’re memorizing pi.

    And I know what you mean Greg, she has, in 3.5 weeks, about 40% of my total page views from the past 8 months.

    Hehe. This is where I take the leap of faith and make the crude comment and hope you don’t get offended… but if you do, I don’t really care. πŸ˜›

    You seem to have omitted the important demographic of the 1/1,000,000 people who just spilled gravy on their computers.

    Normally I’d empathize with your situation except since the middle of last month my page gets anything from 35 to 65 hits a day. The highest has been somewhere in the 90s. And I don’t get any comments from these visitors either. I blame a post about a gentleman called “RJ” and his unpublished book. Though I’ve had a few strangers post on that particular post.

    I’d argue that your “Oh, a blog, not what I wanted” or some variant of “not what I wanted” is much larger than 1/4. Didn’t you mention in an earlier post about people searching for “sex” or some such and not finding what they want? Cuz that’s how I find my way here.

    Now onto the serious matter. I, M., pledge to comment thrice as much as I have commented in the past on this blog.

    Granted, that’s not very much.

    I would say, 95% of the people here are just surfing…
    The word says it itself: they surf, let them carry on the surface of the waves and never look inside…
    And this is the reason why I appreciated your comment, Amanda. Thank you. IΒ΄ll come back inside your waves.

    I’m beginning to think that this post about commenting was just a clever ploy to get even more hits. Because I’m sure you’ve got them.

    Oh, and you may now paint me purple and call me blogged.
