Fresh Squeezings from the veins of the internet!
And today's Meme is more of a poll. Tim Ireland at Bloggerheads is organising a boycott of the Total Bollocks guide to blogging
. I don't know what to make of it. I appeared in it last year, and got a free copy of the overpriced and ill-informed pamphlet thereby generated for my trouble, and found it a singularly uninspiring experience.
My usual reaction to La Dale is to just ignore him. The more we read him, the more we link to him, the more entrenched he gets in his self-appointed role of BlogDaddy. He's the Iqbal Sacranie of bloggers, and I don't want to encourage that. The thing is, Tim Ireland's reaction to him is just as bad, to my mind. Ranting and raving and going on about him all the time is just giving him clicks. Clicks don't register as approving or outraged, they are just eyeballs on his site. Anyway, my question for you, dear f-list, is this: Should I participate in the Total Bollocks web guide this year or not? Do we want to infiltrate and subvert, or just ignore, and hope it goes away?
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: Just the Poll Creator, participants: 9
Should I participate in the Total Bollocks circle jerk?
Oh yes, and Tuesday is shoes day. Expect a big slew of shoes and boots and other assorted footwear to kick off my ebaying later.
