Tag and Popularity..

I've been reading more blogs than I usually do, seems to be the 'big' thing is this game of tag and everyone wanting to be on top of the popularity scale. I personally dont understand this. I thought blogging was a place where you could freely write your own thoughts, ideas, and share just about anything you wanted to share in hopes of someone taking the time to read it. I wasnt aware it was a popularity contest.

Sure I've written posts in the past wondering what it takes to get people to read your blog, but I certainly had no intentions of becoming popular. I want people to read what I write because they are genuinly interested in what I have to say or they appreciate my humor. There are certain blogs I visit daily because I appreciate the humor or the thoughts the person wishes to share.

Hell everytime I look at my blog it always says I have ZERO unique responses. I've asked before what that even means but I guess nobody knew, or those that did, didnt care to share what they know. I've looked for my name under the Roanoke part of Virginia and its not even there...why? Hell if I know. It must be somewhere or you people wouldnt be reading this. I guess the unique responses thing attributes to the popularity thing again?

All I can say is for those that read my blogs..thank you. As for popularity..I reckon I just dont get it.

It is a double edged sword I'm afraid..."popularity" is measured by the number of different people who leave a comment on your blog in the previous 30 days. And it is the last 30 days, rolled daily.

I just keep posting whatever is on my mind, and I leave my thoughts scattered on other people's blogs as I am inspired.

That last game "tag" was dreamed up by somebody and some folks had fun, no harm done.

LustyTaurus- I too post what's on my mind and leave posts on others blogs when I feel I have a response. I know about the game of tag..I'm not dogging it..I dont dog anyone for having fun.
