Here I am dabbling in the political blog arena. I am fairly new to the blogging world and I have made some observations about the blogging culture in general. More specifically the circle of political bloggers. Most political bloggers want readers to their blogs. They don't want to support or read other blogs, they only want a readership to their personal rants and self appointed expertise. Few are the politicos that will read another persons blog for another point of view or for the sake of conversing about a topic. The lurking political bloggers are really only checking out and commenting on other blogs so they can leave a crumb trail to their own stupid blogs. The self-absorbed political bloggers out there lurk around and have no interest in what other people have to say. I have a few blogs I like to read and will almost always make a thought out comment. On my own blog I make an effort to comment back to every person who is kind enough to read my blog and comment. For those of you who are reader poachers, and by that I mean you lurk around my blog with no link on my page, probably because you are more interested in my readership coming to your blog than in actually reading my blog (sorry run on sentence so shoot me), I say BLOG YOU! That is where I link people who are legitimate bloggers with something interesting to say. You however SUCK! Stop being so blog egocentric and maybe you wouldn't have to troll around begging for readers. Until then STAY OFF MY BLOG! disclaimer: this post is not for my friends(you know who you are) and anyone with a link. Thank you.
