Viral web traffic or 15 minutes?
Is this what we want? Do we want thousands or tens of thousands stumbling across our blogs because they were dragged here by some trick of code, or slight of algorithm?
The lady that harassed that driver to speed and loose control of his truck and subsequently wreck out was going for a viral video on YouTube. Why? For her 15 minutes of pathetic fame! She played the role of traffic Nazi under the guise of “keeping everyone safe on the slick roads, until the guy is finally trying to pass her and she does what? She speeds up to further piss the guy off until he does indeed go too fast and wreck his truck. At which time she does what? She stops and gets out and further video’s the guy in the ditch and does she offer to help? Hell no, she taunts the poor guy even further and then, she adds insult to injury and calls the cops and plays the video that she was recording while driving down the road! Had the cops had their heads out of their butts, they would have heard her engine speed up and figured out that she was indeed the person her provoked and indeed instigated the whole mess for what? Her viral video!
The public saw it from her view of “the guy was a jerk and got what he deserved.” The forensically minded, “me” dug a little deeper, and so should the cops! She provoked that guy and he was the victim.
We see many videos that were taken while someone was being beat up, or assaulted in some form or fashion. Instead of helping or stopping the actions of others, we see many looking for their 15 minutes of fame! There was one video making the rounds where some ASSHOLE was beating the snot out of a dog! Some poor dog was getting the crap beat out of it while another asshole videoed the whole thing, and posted it for the world to see!
Yes, I want followers. Do I want to trick you into following me, hell no! Do I want to pay some service to direct tens of thousands here to this blog, so WordPress can validate their advertising scheme and sell “clicks” to vendors who benefit from my work? No…
If you follow me and enjoy my work, that is what I am looking for. If you feel others would enjoy what I do, and or find my words interesting enough to share; that too would be much appreciated.
This blog is for people who think outside the box, like me. This blog is for thinkers or those that would like to engage in conversation that is above the normal fray.
This is the place to be if you like to engage in conversation about topics that others fear to even think about. The opinions are my own. I may not always be right, but I am open minded enough to listen to people from all walks of life, and welcome dialogue in that vein.
Yes, I want followers but, only those that will actually read what I write, and feel compelled to possibly comment or share it with their friends. My goal is to surround myself with like minded folks, and make this a home for others, “like myself” to become acquainted.
If you find this blog such a place, then welcome!
Pull up a chair, kick off your shoes and stay a while. I have spent many hours pontificating about many different things over the last several months, and will continue to do so; as I am either asked to, or as events of the day need to be talked about.
Make this a place to escape from the daily chatter or noise from the TV, or work, or life!
Enlightened conversation is always welcome, and appreciated!
-Best to you and those that you care about!
