Esteemed bloggers link to obscure writer
General public remains unimpressed

Internetville (RotoReuters) – Critically acclaimed blogger Jennifer Garrett posted a link on Monday to words, a blog written by relative unknown robert fuel.

After following the link and reading the post, Xanga-founder and self-proclaimed genius Biz Stone followed suit.

In the subsequent hours and days, an indeterminate number of link-clickers stumbled upon words, read the post and went on with life. A resounding lack of response furiously ensued.

On Thursday, researchers came to the conclusion that one funny post does not make for a good blog and said that those who continue to read words will find themselves sorely disappointed and, in extreme cases, lonely with diarrhea.


Sincere thanks to Jennifer and The Genius for their kind remarks[1][2] and generous linking action. I don’t like to give orders, but you should read their stuff at least once. You’ll probably find everything you’ve been searching for in a blog and never come here again. I'll miss you.

    Joe, you want someone to find your site and link to it so hundreds of people can read it and not care? Trust me; it's not as great as it sounds.

    A hundred thousand people have read my site and not cared. More than that, even.

    Only a small percentage of the people who read you will stick around, but that's ok. Those people are wonderful.

    I'm just kidding with all this. If people want to read my blog, that's great. If not, that's fine. Ultimately, the purpose of this blog is to provide me with a daily creative outlet. If it entertains people at the same time, that's awesome, but I'm not losing sleep at night over readership statistics.
