A cry for help....

Folks... I need a favor. Normally, I wouldn't even bother asking, but this was pretty pathetic... I got an unsolicited review. Cool right? Yeah sure... the dude didn't like my site... but who really cares about that? Even bad reviews are good- they bring traffic... Well, usually they bring traffic... This guy has given me a whopping 4 hits. In 9 days.... 4 whole hits! Woohooo! (it was three this morning, but apparently somebody else decided to come see me after that)... This guy apparently doesn't get much traffic himself... So I figured I'd give him a hand... I mean... really... if you are going to do reviews... What's the point if nobody gets to read them? So everybody go visit this guy and then click on the link back to me. Let me at least try to pretend that his review brought me some traffic.... Thanks folks.....

Done. I was going to leave a comment on his site, but what's the point. He didn't say anything worth one.

I couldn't help myself -- I had to leave a comment. What kind of jerk looks for other people's spelling errors while misspelling words himself?

Angie said...

As soon as I get home...

Mitey Mite said...

Sorry, Gup, the dude is French, and you know how I love the French, so I had to offer an olive branch.

YummY! said...

Ooh! I came here from there without coming ere first! I'm a valid hit for you. -grin-

Ananke said...

Ah, another italk2much wannabe. Except nobody knows he exists. Three hits in 9 days???? That's just sad.

otilius said...

guppy, you are hilarious!

Lucy's Dilemma said...

That guys an ass hole. I've seen him a few times surfing through Blogmad. I like your site just fine. :)

Angie said...

Hey gup, you DO know who that is don't you??

LOL!!! i'm just laughing my head off on this one!!! great one, gups!

Angie-

Who this is?

Just another pathetic child with an Internet connection.

Someone who discovered that they have no people skills at all, and that the only way to have friends is through the computer.

Probably started a blog or two and tried to write about their life before realizing that people don't want to read things like "OMG- kyle's sister needed crack money so she let me touch her boob for only $10- i almost came all over myself yay i got to touch a boob"

Maybe some day he'll get to move to Vegas and start a real life or something.....

Angie said...

I am almost POSITIVE it is that guy who I shall not name..the one who I had tons of trouble with. I think he is at the very least in on that site...with a little writing help or english help from some of his cronies. There are just too many tell tale signs...too many similarities.

I could be wrong, it has happened a time or two.;)

Blueyes said...

some people just gotta bitch about something I guess...who cares what he says, I've seen his site before no more impressive than any others. I like your site and thats all that matters to me :)

team gingerbread said...

I second what blueyes had to say.

Angie said...

guppy, I'm a dork...I didn't even see your "vegas" comment...hee hee hee

Go through his post. Write down any comments that actually suggest any ideas for improvement that you think make sense. Ignore the rest.

It might even start to seem funny in a few months. Honest. You might even join in some chuckling at one or two of his remarks. None of us is perfect. If you want to make a comedy, take three of your faults and imagine who they would be if you multiplied them 10 times. At some point, they'd start to be funny. That's what this guy has done. He took a microscope to your blog and nitpicked it. Undoubtedly he's got some issues of inadequacy himself or he wouldn't find this fun to do, but hey, it's not about him. It's about you. Join in laughing at yourself now and then. Nobody says you have to be perfect. If they do, they're a Type A fool and they will die young of heart disease.

The guy who posted the criticisms is on his way to a very miserable life on the internet if he continues down this path. You, on the other hand, have a very good life. Feel blessed.

Stoopidgirl said...

Well, I like your site just fine. Good that your wife has come through her surgery. What a harrowing experience.
