Thank you forr everty other wonderful article. The place
else may anyone geet that type of information iin such an ideal way of writing?
I havfe a presentation next week, and I’mon the search
for such info.
What I don’t understand, and I really don’t understand this thing that I don’t understand, is why most of the spam messages that come in to my spam folder here on WordPress, tell me how useful or valuable or informative the information on my blog (and I quite agree that informative information is the best kind there is) has been found by the spammer.
Is it that most bloggers are trying to provide informative informational information, or are those that do the best victims for spamming?
I mean, even if I have, once in a blue moon, provided some food for thought or expressed an opinion that has made someone think (even if all they’ve thought is, ‘what a twat’), that’s lovely. Most of the time I just want to type out a piece of waffle as an exercise, the writerly equivalent of going for a jog, and within them there training runs, I hope my trips and pratfalls, if not my scintillating humour, has brought the odd smile among the groans.
But useful? Informative? I can’t think of a single post of mine that even set out to do that (though I was thinking of doing one explaining what mansplaining means). And it’s more often than not the case that the posts singled out by the spammers for said praise (and however old said post may be, all spammers seem to pick on the same one for their grateful eulogising, on any given week) — said posts are the least ‘informative’ of the lot.
Weird. But who cares? ‘Empty Spam’ is the first task every Wednesday. They obviously haven’t read my shit, don’t see why I should keep theirs.
So the only information, informative or otherwise, you’re getting this week is that I just popped into the very nice Pho Viet restaurant on Dalry Road in Edinburgh and had this delicious braised chicken with lemon grass. And I only tell you that because I think a picture adds something to a blog post.
