COMMENTS THAT SUCK
Some comments are the blogging equivalent to “have a nice day.” I can have a nice day without someone telling me to thank you very much. “You have a great day now.” Thanks, I was planning on getting a flat tire, catching a cold and finding my wife with another dude until you told me to “Have a great day now.”
I’m going to lose some “followers” with this, but I’m guessing those followers don’t really follow anyway. I love comments, I am sure most of us do, but some comments are so in sincere I can do without them.
The comments that really get me are the follow me comments.
“LOL, good stuff, check me out at ****@*****”
I do check out the other sites, but “Mollysellsgirlyshittomommys”? I am the Cranky Old Man. I am sure many people love your site, but a Cranky Old Man? You are not reading my stuff, and I don’t like girly shit, why should we follow? What is it with these follow numbers?I see bloggers who follow over three thousand other blogs. How? What is going on? Who the frick can read thousands of blogs per day?
Here is a comment that just made me warm all over:“Those were interesting, thank you, new follower at*****@***** check me out.”
INTERESTING? The post was supposed to be funny. If you read it you would say either “very funny”, or “that sucked”. Very Interesting, what does that mean?
Here are other bull shit comments, I’d rather not see:“Love your blog, I’m at *****@*****”
“Great post, passing through from *****@*****”
“Love your site, following from *****@***** stop by…..”
“Stopping by from ****@**** now following and would love a follow back if you get a chance”
“Hi, I am a new follower from ****@***** please follow back”
Here is a generalization that will cost me some friends. The MOM blogs are full of “buy this”, “win this” and “coupons, coupons, coupons”. The MUM blogs tend to have content. Are we that shallow in the USA, or can you make money with coupon shit?Hey, I’m just asking.
Hope I did not offend anyone with this, but those I would offend do not really read my stuff any way.I’ll bet I get at least one comment, “Lol, following from *****@*****, come check me out.”
You have a great day now!
