This might sound very bitter, but hey I need to unload something off my chest. I took part in #MyFriendAlexa not only to improve my Alexa rating, but in the hope that my writing would reach more readers. That is the dream, isn’t it?
My first post got nearly 150 comments, an all time high. But, I was not anticipating the deluge of completely insincere comments like the ones listed in the rant above. I know this is a long and arduous campaign, and I know no two bloggers are alike. I might write just for the pleasure of writing, but for some, their blogs might be the sources of income. So, trust me when I say this, I’m comfortable with the fact that you are on the lookout to just improve the traffic to your blog and the other plethora of metrics which might earn you a buck or two extra.
But, what annoys the crap out of me is someone pretending to read my posts and then having the temerity to post a insincere comment. For you, this might just be a bloody chore. Not for me, my dear blogger friend. Do you know how much time I dedicated to write a story for this campaign? How much time did I spend proof- reading, editing, changing certain things etc? And then, you decide to leave a comment like ‘Great Post.’
This is nothing but purely insulting me and my writing. Not just me alone, there are many of my blogger friends who take their precious time to read and leave fantastic comments on my posts. Your two-word insincerity laced comments are a slap in their faces as well.
If you are not interested in spending 2-3 minutes reading, and a minute commenting on my story, then PLEASE DON’T COMMENT. I BEG OF YOU! Just share the link of my blog post through Twitter and be done with it. Your job is done.
My good friends at Blogchatter, while preparing the defaulters list for week 2 please make sure that you don’t take into account of the number of comments on my blog. I’d rather prefer not receiving these lip-service comments.
This post is not intended to hurt anyone. As I stated, I understand. Maybe, what I write is not something you guys even read or enjoy. Maybe, you have a ton of work each working day. Maybe, your blog and your brand is all that matters to you. Perfectly logical and completely acceptable.
Just don’t annoy me with your comments.
Ps: I assure you that I will not leave these sorta insincere comments on your blog. 🙂
I’m taking my Alexa rank to the next level with blogchatter.
