I’m a big, fat blog whore. It’s true. I signed up for BlogExplosion to drive traffic to my blog. For every 2 blogs I read, 1 person will read mine.
I used to think that what I had here was pretty amusing, but after reading hundreds and hundreds of blogs, I can’t see how anything here of interest to people in mainstream America. I mean the main purpose of signing up for a service to drive traffic to your site is either to spread a message that you think is important or to sell people Viagra. As I have no Viagra to sell, by signing up I have stated that my site is worth reading.
And to me, that’s a fucking hefty statement, because I really don’t have a message that needs spreading.
While I sit here thinking about the hundreds of blogs that I’ve surfed in the last few days, I can’t see how any of the people on BlogExplosion (and by extension mainstream America) would be the least bit interested in anything I have to say. For what I can tell, BlogExplosion people are interested in 1.) Creating advertisements that masquerade as blogs, 2.) The joys of being a mommy, 3.) The joys of being a Mommy to cats, 4.) The antics of Mr. Bojangles their dog, and 5.) Bush sucks.
I have nothing to say on these subjects, and those people had full blogs about the crap. I mean not only do they maintain full blogs about Mr. Bojangles, including whimsical items like pictures of him wearing a little Santa hat while eating at the table, but they think that mainstream America needs to know about it.
And maybe they do.
But, if they need to know about that stuff, I can’t see what they could possibly find here. A better question is “Why I am trying to get them here?”
I feel like I’m ringing a bell in the middle of a Wal-Mart without a single sparkly kitty sweater to sell.
I’ve put in countless hours this weekend on a 16,000 machine upgrade. It’s been 2 days and it’s still fucking going on. Sometimes, I hate work.
