This blog doesn’t receive a lot of reader comments, which sometimes makes me wonder if I’m writing to myself (plus side, at least I’m writing something nearly every day). That said, nothing’s funnier to me than when a comment comes in that’s nothing more than someone asking me to link to their writing website.
There’s a comment that’s been sitting in the blog’s controls since September. All that it says is “my site” with a link to his writing website in his user name. I don’t know why I keep it there; why not just delete it? I resent his comment enough to do so; it’s clear he didn’t read my blog beyond acknowledging it’s about writing.
If I write something worth your comments, please comment. If I don’t, then don’t. But please don’t spam me with a link to your writing website. If you want to create a synergistic partnership, send me an email about it. As for the comment in question, I’ve marked it as spam. And I feel great!
