Big Star

As Birdie says: You're a star!!!

Well, of course I am.

Duh, Winning!!!

Ok, we all know I'm not. Not really. It'd be nice, but I don't see it happening. Of course, if I were, then like Lindsay Lohan, I'll only need to go by one name. Nay, I'd insist on it.

Birdie wrote a piece on the Bilerico Project and I left a simple two sentence comment. Three, if you count me copying and pasting a reference from her original post. But my contribution was only two sentences.

Those 21 words garnered me the Comment of the Week. I'm sure it was only four of those words that got me the nod. And since it was "filed" by a doctor, you know it's official!!!

I'll let you go read the piece, the comment and the follow-up to my comment. But I was happy to start a discussion with just four words. I can't say I'm happy with how people came back at my comment. Not that they were attacking me or anything, it is just that I'm disappointed in their views. Disheartened, if you will.

I said to Birdie via email, that maybe this exposure will up my readership and get me back those 30 hits per day that have gone bye-bye. Of course, as soon as they read one or two of my posts, they'll be gone like the wind. And who could blame them?

ahhhh.....fame is fleeting.

What a shock...I followed the link, read the comments and felt compelled to respond.

Stop worrying about losing or gaining readership. It makes you seem like your pandering for votes and writing solely for popularity. You have a strong following of people who return and are interested in what you have to say, so there's your incentive...keep writing what you want, how you want and don't worry if people come and go. it happens.

You da man. You sure got things rolling. I love hearing both sides of the issue, because it gives me things to think about: sometimes to change my mind, sometimes to anchor my current opinion.

Buck up, Blobby.
Fame can be fleeting.
Have you ever visited Indiana?
Ohio West. Quite scary.
