I get mildly annoyed when, in addition to their comments, people leave links to their blogs with a helpful, "Do drop by at my blog" or "Feel free to comment on my blog".
It's just... blatant self-advertisement.
It's just... a ploy to up your blog traffic.
It's just... argh.
Honestly I get extremely confused when faced with commenters like these. Why in the name of all things good and holy would you want me to comment on your blog?! Would it improve your karma in any way?! Well, I do try to be polite and drop the occasional comment, but in fact I'm an extremely lazy commenter. In reference to bloggers who disabled the comment function on their blogs, heck I can't even bring myself to leave comments in chat boxes.
, although I don't comment, I still read your blog faithfully. Heh.)
I pride myself on knowing precisely what I want to read. I pride myself on recognizing from the way a person comments, roughly how his or her blog is going to be written. Put it this way, I have close friends that blog and even I don't read all of their blogs. Don't get me wrong, all my friends are lovely, lovely people real life. But not everyone's blogging style is my cup of tea. You may like my blog, but I might not like yours.
I'm not bothered by the (miniscule) amount of traffic on my blog. Apart from the useless Google Adsense which I installed almost two years ago but never bothered checking, my blog has not succumb to Nuffnang
. Maybe Lilian thinks that bloggers who don't have ads are foolish
, but I've never considered blogging as a source of income. It's just something I do in my free time. Maybe I will some time in the future... but when I think about whoring my blog, blehh... hahahahaha.
I'm too narcissistic to allow that to happen. I might not be Kenny Sia
, but still this MY baobei
blog and so far I only write about stuff that are of full interest to ME
. I've nothing against bloggers who blog for money. To each his own, I guess.
My CNY leave was approved, so I'll be a taking a rest from blogging for the whole of next week... *happy happy joy joy*
Gong Xi Fatt Chai to all my readers, and may the Year of the Rat bring good health, wealth and happiness to everyone.
I'm thinking of getting a new hamster soon.
