Question of the Day
May 13, 2007
The other question in my mind (besides the other thousand or so questions that haven’t emerged yet) is whether I will get any new readers? I was blogging in a place called blogsource and I never had more then 10 or 20 readers, but everybody was quite nice, and not very competitive and we though we had different ideas and religions and food preferences and ways of dressing; so we all sort of supplemented each other rather than competing with each other.
Well, everybody was laughing behind my back, but that’s OK. I mean, they could have been laughing in front of my back.
So now here I am at WordPress and the question of the day (not to mention the last century) is will my readers be the same wonderful crew who also came over from blogsource or will new readers show up as well? (Several wonderful people have shown up. Hello, wonderful people.)
David Rochester is also over here at WordPress, and in a week or two David will have 87 new readers. I know how David does it. He drops in on other people’s blogs and makes pithy, insightful, friendly comments, so they check out his blog and read about his angst and traumas and anxieties and illnesses and tortured love life.
It’s impossible to resist. The funny thing is that he tells everybody what an awful person he is but he comes across as a really nice person, which I guess is his persona. Also, he tells women how difficult and impossible it is to have a relationship with him, so almost every woman who reads his bog swoons, and when she comes to, she says, “I’m the woman who could really meet his needs if he just gave me the opportunity.”
Actually, David, it just occurred to me that you remind me a bit of Woody Allen. Except I suspect Woody really is a creep. David, on the other hand, probably really is difficult, but I don’t think he is a creep.
Woody Allen does have some talent, so he should get to keep some of his money, but he should send at least 25% of whatever is left to David, because David deserves it more. Are you listening, Woody?
So there you are, David. I think you are difficult but not a creep. I don’t know if you consider that praise or an insult or accurate or inaccurate, but there, I’ve said it, so now you’re stuck with it unless you want to delete my blog.
