People can be so lame
I have a number of blogs bookmarked that I read every morning when I log on at work. I kept looking at them either because they were well-written, about something I find interesting, or just so lame that you can't help looking. Sometimes I post a comment. The comments are never mean, as far as I recall. Comments are the part of this blog medium that I like best. It makes it more an interactive exercise than a journal. If you don't want comments, either do what Invisible Ben did, or write in a friggin' spiral-bound notebook and hide it between your mattress. Whether or not you want your blog to be for just you and your friends and your own inside jokes, you're posting your life on the mf-ing internet. You get what you get, it isn't a slam book.

Because I don't want to start a feud, I won't link to the blog/blogger I'm talking about, but this said person wrote a post on her feelings about a guy, whether he loved her truly or just thought he did, whether she wanted to love him back, etc. etc. Her posts are always intelligent, well-crafted, and funny, that's why I read her blog in the first place. Sometimes at the end of her post she'll say "any advice?" Well, apparently she meant "do any of the people who are my friends and read my blog even though I've probably told them all this already in person have any advice for me?" I thought I had something worthwhile to contribute, so I posted a comment. She didn't think said comment was worthwhile and she deleted it, which is fair enough. But then she felt like she had to post on how she writes pretending that no one out there exists, that she doesn't want advice, and that she's going to continue deleting comments.

Well, needless to say, great writer or not, hers is not a blog that I'm going to bother reading anymore. I know that not only will she not care, she'll be glad. It just really rubbed me the wrong way. I thought that I was unbelievably self-centered, but that has to take the cake. I hope the guy that loves her reads her blog.

    My comment for that loser is, "JERK".

    I've heard about other bloggers posting comments and then getting irate email from the blogger. I think for the most part bloggers who have comments options are open to perfect strangers posting remarks. It's too bad you had to experience a disappointment like that, but fortunately, it doesn't seem very common.
