Suppose you wrote a blog, and nobody came?

“It’s the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It’s understood that Hollywood
sells Californication

-Balzary, Michael Peter; Frusciante, John; Smith, Chad; Kiedis, Anthony;


“I don’t see Melanctha why you should talk like you would kill yourself just because you’re blue. I’d never kill myself Melanctha just ’cause I was blue. I’d maybe kill somebody else Melanctha ’cause I was blue, but I’d never kill myself. If I ever killed myself Melanctha it’d be by accident, and if I ever killed myself by accident Melanctha, I’d be awful sorry.”

-Gertrude Stein, Melanctha from Three Lives

I have known for a long time I have put together small videomedia and posted it on youtube. Some of it has been up for years with minimal hits, say 22 for 2 years. About two years ago, I started this blog for laughs, it even has a connection to the youtube account. I notice as well, many people put up wonderful stuff on the net for viewing by the rest of us. I have linked it when relevant. But for now, I wonder, what if no one ever really visits your sites? Are you only really writing it for yourself? And, like an open journal, is that such a bad thing? I mean if dickhead politicos could have websites.  .  .

I gave up on facebook long ago, and I only use myspace for photostorage. All of this media and it comes down to bullshit. Social media sometimes turns to shit. I guess I will continue to write for myself. I don’t really know why the fugg else I would bother. . .?

Some people write blogs and disappear. Sofie was like that ( ). She moved off to another venue. I wrote to someone else, and we exchanged two or three emails, then they stopped. I would image blogs take time (mine do), so people put in a lot of energy. Maybe they fall in love and put their energy somewhere else! There is two fun blogs I read sometimes, Methylethel and Mac.

Otherwise check this chit:

“Very intreresting post. It was very useful. I was searching exaxtly for this. Thank you for your effort. I hope you will write more such useful posts.”

“Thanks, I have just been searching for information about this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve found out so far. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive in regards to the source?”


I find constantly all this spam shit, where you trace back a blog referral and find it is some insurance company, or some product for something (recently, Viagra–what are they checking my action?) you wouldn’t chit on if it was on the bottom of a toilet, is in your blog! I wonder how many other people get this? A blog I get a few hits on a week is the one about “Friends no longer. . .”, but I think it is for the “We can do it!”/Rosie the Riveter” artwork. In fact, I doubt anyone, except the spammers who claim they read the blog, everyone else just seems to be tracking the pictures!

I also get spam that claims it can get me more hits if I purchase their software! wtf?

As Kara Walker would say, “She thinks.”

Some days become more challenging, feeling invisible. At least it is not like on my job, where a coworker treats me like a piece of unwanted furniture. She thinks.

Thank goodness for the dweebster.

    think of all the blogs that exist out there. all the youtube accounts. all the everything that exists on the web. you want people to find you, then you have to put the word out where it matters.

    … which means, it’s time to get with the twitter.

    Is it alright to place part of this on my weblog if I post a reference point to this webpage?
