The Price of Fame

iconLets say you're living every blogger's dream. You start up a site, and whamo, you've gone from 0 to 5000 hits in less than a week. You're link whoring, you're posting like mad, and you build up a huge reader base. You make it to the A-list of bloggers in record time. You are the Bobby Fischer of blogging. So, what is your next challenge?

You see if you can drive your readers away just as quickly. Beat them off with a stick, if you have to.

Where is this A-list? I wanna see the A-list! There is no A-list, I tell you. It's a scam, a hoax, a hype, a piece of propoganda originating from Baghdad Bob's Blog.

Besides, I wasn't trying to drive readers away. I was trying to encourage their participation in the comment section and set some limits on the number of "Hi, I've never written you before but from what I've read we're long lost soul mates. Let me tell you about my dog's scaly red rash...." e-mails.

However, now that I know you're not adverse to getting three or four dozen messages of that kind per day, I'll start sending you some myself!

I think all the bitching about it is tacky.

You get what you pay for.

You reap what you sow?

Uh.......hmmm.....god, what other insults can I hurl?

I wish to state for the record that I have never been beaten off by Venomous Kate.

Well, I have. It's fun. Try it.

Actually, I should probably go back to all that touchy feely shit since I've managed to piss everyone off.

Somehow...I don't think it's gonna help me cope this week.

Rage and bile are working whether any of us like it.
