I don’t think this odious post deserves to even be linked to, but I’m reblogging it anyway because it’s one of those “things that make you go WTF.” The writer stopped blogging 6 years ago anyway so it won’t matter (their last post was written in 2010, which means this post, written in 2009, was NOT their last blog post.)
This post explains why he decided to quit blogging. Because “all bloggers are losers.” He came to that conclusion after ONE WEEK of blogging. And decided to write a blog post about it. Mainly, it seems they got frustrated because they weren’t getting many views. After one week of blogging. Newsflash: it takes months, hell, even years to build up a good-size following or a high view count. When I was blogging for a week, I had 12 followers. 12!!!! Was it frustrating? YES! I griped about it here. But did I give it up? HELL, NO. Now I have over a million views and thousands of followers. It takes time, people. And patience isn’t a virtue of mine.
The blogger also claims he got “only” 64 views a day. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s very high for a blogger who has only been blogging for a week. I don’t think I had 64 views until at least my second week–and that was per WEEK, not day.
I think the real loser was the author of this post. It’s a shame too, because this blogger actually had some decent writing skills.

I’ve been blogging for just about a week now. My journey into the world of blogs has come to a close and the results are in. I now feel like I’m in a position to comment about blogs and bloggers in general but I thought I’d just start with a good, old fashioned blanket statement (or generalisation) and announce that: ‘All bloggers are losers’
I’ll tell you how I reached this conclusion, or discovered this fact, or solidified my hypothesis very slowly and very methodically – so by the end of it, you’ll agree with me and will hastily scramble to your Dashboard to annihilate your blog from the ‘Blogosphere’. (My god, I fucking hate buzz words.)
The first time I made my blog I couldn’t help but feel slightly weird. Why was I doing it? Why should I write things for other people to read? Is it for myself?…
