Jack, aloha. Since it’s now Wednesday night, I am sure your work is done and you triumphed once again.
Jack, I have to tell you that I enjoyed your laugh which did, in fact, border on the hysterical. For a moment I feared you might be going over the edge.
Nice rant; nice vent. You must have felt ever so much better when you finished.
You are so right, Jack, that no body, and I mean, NO BODY, offline gives a rip what we are doing. They don’t know, don’t understand nor do they want to. As you say, too many bloggers have become legends in their own minds and think it matters.
Heck, if it doesn’t matter to the blogosphere, why on earth should it matter offline?
Best wishes for a Terrific Thursday. Until next time, aloha. Janet

My family teases me about my laugh because I am truly laughing my whole body shakes and moves. But that is ok with me, joy should be felt with our entire being.
A good rant does indeed provide some catharsis. Hope you are having a great day.

It’s good to hear you laughing, Jack!

Thanks. Believe it or not I tend to do a lot of it.

Sir, I believe that was a delirious laugh; you must have had it piled on today.
Golf can be very humbling BTW.
And why do you think I ride around w/ my BK Social Media Crown on and dragging my 25 followers; just so people know how really important I am in social.
Good luck w/ your deadlines.

Delirious is a good description for it. It was piled on and I survived, sort of. 😉
I hear that about golf. I think your crown looks quite nice, might have to get me one of those.

I would love to know who you are listening to. I actually think being humble means paying attention to other writers. Instead of just plugging ones own stuff, you plug another person. What do you get out if this? You don’t sound like an arrogant prick who is constantly talking about his own work 24/7.
Good writers recognize and collaborate with other writers. I don’t know how many people are subscribed to your blog, but one way to grow your blog is to focus less on the people you consider “blowhards” and actually link up to people you admire. They might actually reciprocate. Positivity and colaboration is another way to build a readership.

I rarely use the names of the people I am criticizing because I don’t want them to benefit from the 17 readers I could send there.
Don’t believe in collaboration or being positive because that kind of energy brings me down and it would wreck reputation as One Eyed Jack, Scourge of the Internets.
But when people pay me big money I am always happy to write about them. 😀
