One Poor Old Blogger’s Take on the Rich Young Ruler

the-rich-young-blogger

A certain blogger asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit internet peace.?”

“Why do you call me good?” the teacher answered. “No one is good—except Arianna alone (at least for this week).  You know the commandments:  ” Post daily,  reply to all comments,  leave numerous comments on other blogs,  link often and use lots of lists in your titles. ”

“All these I have kept since….well, at least for a year or so, now” he said.

When the teacher heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Remove any links to Technorati and never check your rating again. Then come, follow me.”

When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was a blogger of great pride.

    Don’t forget SiteMeter and TLB. Monkeys on a blogger’s back, I tell ya.

      Yep. Thank God I couldn’t get half of those things to work, myself.

    And the blogger went away sad because he was a short vocational teacher, a short-order cook, and a short jester in a Renaissance circus act.

      Ladies and Gentlemen! The new Don Rickles!

      Meter, not Master you ivory tower putz. I’m surprised you haven’t strangled yourself on your mice cord yet. Jeesh!

      It was good to see you the other day. I was thinking that we should get together more often but then I thought…nah! What, am I nuts?!

        Yes, you are nutz.

        Okay, if it is a site meter–why do people call themselves Webmaster, like the young man we know who says he is a Webmaster for a hospital?

    As opposed to a Webmistress? BTW – you need to shorten your user name – it’s spilling over into the sidebar.

    BTW, are you partial to things that are short?

    How about “msundrstgnys” or “realteacher” or “fmrfundy”

    LOL — love it! I only started blogging about a week ago after studying the major Teachings of the world for more than 20 years, and I really enjoyed your post. Thank you!
