My attitude to 'blogging about blogging' graphically illustrated

- and that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I take no part in the juvenile voting in blog 'beauty contests' that far too many bloggers seem obsessed by, nor any interest in those who organise said activity. Its sole purpose is to drive more traffic to their blogs so they can improve their positions in the lists. Pure and simple onanism for the ego; as the Coca-Cola ad. had it, nothing beats the real thing.

Have a great day, folks ...


  1. Coming soon, Iain Dale's list of blogs who give not a sh-t about lists.

  2. LOL - and it wouldn't at all surprise me if he did try that as yet another tedious way of drumming up interest, aka yet more thinly disguised self-promotion.

  3. I used to read Dale a lot, don't bother much now.
    Anyway, yes right Bill, if something is worth reading people will read it.
