Confession: I haven’t put much effort into figuring out what exactly blogging is – or the inner workings of WordPress, for that matter. Basically I just write stuff and publish it. My statistics plod along with the occasional inexplicable spike followed by a resettling. (On the bright side, though, I have made some connections with wonderful people – which gives me a lot of enjoyment.) Anyway, some questions have arisen over these two years that have kept me wondering about this whole blog business. I decided to make a little survey. Please take a minute to enlighten me on a few things:
1) Do the bloggers you follow also tend to stop writing shortly thereafter?
c) No. Never. You following someone’s blog must be like the WP Kiss of Death.
2) Do you ever suspect that the majority of your followers are actually computer-generated algorithms?
c) No. Never. Maybe you are some kind of magnet for those things.
3) Are you ever overwhelmed by the reading/commenting part of blogging?
c) No. Now stop whining.
4) Do the tag terms you use matter?
c) Of course! (How long have you been doing this??)
5) Do you also enjoy reading your spam comments?
c) Um . . . no. What is wrong with you?
Let me say “Thanks!” in advance to anyone who takes the survey. As an extra incentive, I will honor you in my next post with a little pyramid-scheme chain letter blogger award that I created myself. I even made a logo for it – see?
And then you can annoy pass it on to 10 other blog friends with a list of 5 (or 50) questions they have to answer before passing it on to ten more annoyed bloggers who have to make up their own questions, and so on and so forth and anyone who breaks the chain will risk dire consequences like burning in hell for all eternity, but – never fear – if they really like you they will share the joy.
Thanks for all your help!
