Amazing what attracts people to my blog…
Share a post about knocking on doors, updates from the UK, views on a detector, or an interesting news article, and nada. Throw one out about someone slandering you, and bam, hundreds of views. Says a lot about where we are as a group or entity, and even more about where I fit in within that community. Lots of subscribers and Facebook followers, but only a handful took the time to to lend support.
I traced a large number of yesterday’s visitors to a forum, where a poster shared a link to my blog, with the heading “Dick Stout called Fake and Phony”. Despite his comment that he was an occasional reader, I have a feeling he just loved typing it. Then again, no surprise coming from a forum.
Of course ultimately it was my fault for even approving Mr. Kemper’s remarks, and for following them up with a post taking umbrage. It did however open my eyes to a lot of things, and has given me cause to rethink the purpose and usefulness of this blog.
Back to work on my book….
