Even though I lock my car doors every time I’m at a stoplight if there are pedestrians nearby, I tend to believe that most people are kind. Which is why it took me nearly three years of blogging to consider a question that stopped me in my tracks the other day—are there people who read this blog regularly not because they like it, but because they like to silently mock me?
While I generally assumed that non-commenters are of the friendly-but-quiet variety, I guessed that the answer to my question in at least some cases is yes. And for a day or two, I felt a little uneasy and confused.
And then I remembered that funny scene from The Office in which Dwight and Andy interview each other for Dwight’s admission to Cornell and I forgot about feeling uneasy and confused, because, come on, that was SO FUNNY!
But today I remembered that question and it begat other questions that I’m going to ask you. (And I’m changing my settings so that you may answer in complete anonymity if you desire.) I’m not so much interested in your answers as they pertain to my blog. After all, if there are haters out there, they are not the first to hate me. And thankfully they are quiet, so I’m grateful that my haters have good manners. (Bravo, haters!) But I’m just dying to know in general:
1. Are there blogs you frequent because you love to hate them?
2. Can you explain your draw to them?
3. Do you look down on people who have a toenail fungus?
That last one is a little off-topic, but I’m still curious.
OK, please discuss. I’m totally and completely interested in your answers.
