Hi, Seth. I enjoy reading your posts, mostly. It becomes so tiresome to hear you complain about A-listers. Please just say what you want to say and spare us the agony. Of course I understand what you want to say is how unhappy you are that you don't have a large audience. Maybe in the future we can make a law that says everyone has to read every blog out there so that everyone has an equal voice.

It's not worth it. It's just not. It's a bad habit (blogging).

Well I think you have great things to say, and offer a refreshingly different take on things. (Except for my objections about the A-to-Z thing!) So I hope you keep it up. Your readers, however many there may be, are thankful for what you share.

Without taking offense, the problem is that there's very little support for it, and sadly, very much risk. :-(.

I agree with the anonymous coward. I'd rather read your other posts than the commentary on how you aren't getting a lot of traffic (which will become a self-fulfilling prophecy if it starts turning readers away). Then again, I guess that is just your style and it makes us feel home here :)

It's evidence as to the uselessness of blogging, if you want to be heard beyond a tiny fan audience.

#4 hit for Wikipedia Cabal? Damn. Many months ago I spent a long time writing up an essay on the phenomenon here:

Unfortunately something about WR prevents it from showing up in Google Search results. :-( All that work for nought.
