Rules for Getting Your Comments Accepted Here

Tue, 2017-02-21 16:35

I know what you are doing. I do it too. You go around posting comments on other people's blogs hoping to get a link back to your own site and get you some Google juice. The difference in you and me is that I seek out blogs with similar topics to whatever blog I am trying to promote. The last I heard relevance is important to Google. When I visit a blog I read the post and if I can think of something intelligent to say I join in the conversation. You gotta have a lot of blogs in your feed reader to make this work.

I know this blog is beautiful and that I can write circles around Hemingway. Or maybe that is not true at all and you are a lousy judge of art. Either way, comments about my mini talents will get you deleted.

This is not a how-to blog unless I wake up in the morning and decide to write a how-to post. Questions about how I made such a wonderful blog or how I keep it spam free will be deleted. If you honestly want me to make you a wonderful blog such as this I will direct you to my contact form. Along those same lines, I kinda wish those wanna be professionals who e-mail me daily asking me if this website is living up to it's potential would dry up and blow away.

In conclusion, I would like to apologize to Sue for letting her comment languish in my queue for 4 months or so. Her website is not relevant but her comment certainly is.

BTW, I know I gots some images not showing up on the site. Thanks.

To The Person Whose Child I Treated Rudely

Wed, 2008-08-20 19:29

I can offer no excuse. Rudeness is a terrible way to deal with a situation. I do know that I tend to be direct by nature. I am often able to tone that down a bit especially when the person I am talking to does not know me well. It helps a lot that I do not allow myself to get angry very often.

I did let myself get angry at you. I flew hot when you winked your eye at me and suggested I let a certain rule slide. The rules I follow were put in place by the people I work for. These are hard working people who are trying to make a living and provide for their families. They trust me to make sure nobody takes unfair advantage of their hard work. I found out earlier this summer exactly how far I am willing to go to protect their interests, and it is scary.

I am sorry that your son suffered collateral damage in this. Young folks should be encouraged in their ventures. I believe that I did say something to that effect at the time. You would have done much better to back off and let him handle the situation, even if the result would have been the same.

If The Shoe Fits...

Fri, 2008-02-08 20:53

I don't really expect anyone that I know in real life to read this. Anyone else who happens to read it probably won't know what I am talking about. That is fine with me because I read a lot of things on various blogs that I don't understand. The thing is that if you do know what I am talking about, and think that maybe I am talking about you, then I probably am. I don't really see much point in telling you any of this to your face, and I don't think any less of you for holding your opinions, but if you came here expecting to see my personal opinion you will not be disappointed this time.

Excuse Me, Do I Owe You Something?

Fri, 2007-12-07 03:23

It does not happen too often, but sometimes I meet people in real life who are affected by what I do.

The lady I met today thought the board should change policy because she is not able to make a living otherwise. Hello? If you cannot make ends meet through your chosen path then you might want to try your hand at waiting tables. Always worked for me.

If existing channels do not provide for your to make a living, you are free to petition for change. You are also free to brainstorm towards something that will work.

Folks will not change so that you don't starve. Folks are too busy trying not to starve to care about you. Sorry.
