Tales of Treachery & Treason On The High Seas of Blogging

Privateer ship Lynx in Morro Bay, CA privateer-ship-lynx-morro-bay

Some days as I sail the Mighty blog TheJackB through the reefs, shoals and storms we see throughout the blogosphere I think about how many times we have had to contend with blatant skullduggery and intentional obfuscation or purpose.

How many times have we done battle with numbskulls, nincompoops and ninnies who have tried to use tired blogging and social media tricks to convince us that they were superstars who deserved lavish amounts of praise for producing the sort of content that would best be served in a newspaper used by fish mongers.

I am not here to talk to you about the many ways you can use keywords like Snowden, Gandolfini, Blackhawks or North West to try and gain traffic.

Not going to start a flame war or talk about dad bloggers can monetize their blogs, nope, not going to do it.

    For whatever reason, today I just wasn’t in the mindset to concentrate with much depth on the usual onslaught of various posts from my favorite bloggers. This one hit the spot just fine. I guess I can admit that I never missed an episode of either show in syndication when I was a kid in the 70s.
    I don’t typically respond to a blog post with a link, but keeping with the theme, thought you might get a laugh out of this dog singing the “Batman” theme. Have a great evening!

    I’m glad that you won’t stoop to sneaking in some keywords to boost your blog. (Johnny Depp is a hit magnet btw.) Also, the theme song to Gilligan’s Island gets me singing.
