I hope he's wrong
The thing I've always liked most about blogging (and reading other blogs) is the free-wheeling, wide-open atmosphere. Start a blog, write about anything that blows your dress up, and if you're any good, you'll eventually draw an audience. Links from the Tall Dogs help, but they really aren't essential.
If you build it, they will come.
I'm going to celebrate my 4th Blog Birthday next month. Gut Rumbles has always been a labor of love for me. I've put a lot of work into what you see here, but it's been a lot of fun, too. Hell, I've stuck with this hobby for a long time and I still enjoy doing it. I don't intend to quit anytime soon.
I know that everything evolves (or mutates) over time. I hope this guy is wrong about what he sees happening now, but I always figured that it was just a matter of time before blogging lost its cherry and became a lot like an elite country club with exclusive membership instead of a mud-wrestling pit, where everyone was welcome to join.
I prefer the mud-wrestle myself.
But what the hell? I'm a troglodyte. It still think the 1957 Chevy Bel Air was one of the best, and prettiest, cars ever built. I still think the "designated hitter" rule sucks.
I also think professional football has lost its dignity because of egotistical players who demean the game with their selfish antics.
I would hate to see blogging go the same way.
Any brain that can come up with that word is doing just fine. I hope he's not right, too. But, he probably is...where's there's a way to make a buck...
I see no need for fear. The PJM or as I prefer to call it: "Open Sores Media" can hardly conscript readers. If they want to drip pus on themselves, let 'em. I'll effin' read whatever I effin' want. They can go suck eggs.
Oh, yeah. Good to have you back and hang tough, you were missed.
Hell, the only one of the PJM I look at nearly every day is Bill Quick anyway. The rest ,except for Renolds ,I have never clicked on.
Rob, as long you're here us troglodytes will always have a mud pit to wallow in.
Glad you're back.
1965 AC Shelby Cobra....prettiest....fastest street legal car ever until recently....
Wow, it's only been 4 years? Seems I've been visiting here longer than that!
I much prefer mud wrestlin' and a '57 Chevy than all the 'pundits' online!
Four years fly by fast, don't they? "They" say as one gets older the years go faster,,,sure hope that isn't true.
Bowleggs, I did a lot of fucking in my 57 Chevy, you just brought back memories, Cat
I much prefer good manners.
If you get tired of the mud, I'm certain that we can supply plenty of Jello for your wrestling needs.
1 : a member of a primitive people dwelling in caves
2 : a person resembling a troglodyte (as in reclusive habits or outmoded or reactionary attitudes)
Oh wanna mud wrestle when I get to Ga?
Bane - After posting a photo of myself nekkid on my blog, and you saying nothing at all, all I can say is that I am disappointed and my offer of wrestling is now open only to Acidman.
Sorry honey ;) X Just a little too late...
glad to see you back. you're a strong person, taking your life into your own hands.
best to you.
Nawww...fortunately or unfortunately THAT GUY isn't wrong. It's capitalisim at work. So be it.
I choose not to contribute, though, I prefer to be down in the pit with you, Rob, and Cat, and Beu and GOC and Steel and............so many great, absolutely great blogs out here. Just wishes i were so talented, and had the stamina it takes to keep a great blog going
