And I’m thinking, “Right, thanks. Should I start moderating comments now?”
So, here’s the link. Sharithstar asked this question in the iAnswer page in Infocomm123:
What attract readers to reading blogs by Sheylara, Dawn Yang, Xiaxue?
I wanna know what attracts people to read their blogs.
In the same vein, I also wonder why the Goonfather likes slapstick and how people can eat boiled chicken breasts with no seasoning whatsover and not die of abject misery.
The Goonfather can watch something like White Chicks for the fifth time and still bust his guts and split my eardrums guffawing like there’s no tomorrow.
Seriously. You don’t want to be in the same room as the Goonfather when he’s watching slapstick.
I’m digressing on purpose because it’s fun to make fun of the Goonfather. His expressions, each time he confronts me about making him my post-of-the-day subject, are priceless.
Then, in retaliation, he’ll make me sit through another two hours of mind-corroding slapstick. It’s a fair world.
Okay, end of digression.
What I want to say is that I hope readers are reading all our blogs for quite different reasons because I don’t really want to be like anyone else.
I think people read Dawn because she’s pretty and has a glamorous lifestyle. People read Xiaxue because she’s funny and creative and naturally controversial (that is, as opposed to people who become controversial merely for the sake of getting traffic). I hope people read me because I’m pretty and glamorous and funny and creative and naturally controversial.
I think people read my blog because I’m randomly entertaining. At least, that is what I’m hoping for.
I try to be unpredictable.
For instance, I didn’t post an entry in the last two days because I decided to give myself an MC.
I received a flu virus on Friday from the Goonfather; such a thoughtful gesture. It made me feel really horrible, so I decided to boycott everything (after publishing GGF) and do nothing but lie in bed for two days and watch TV and play games.
But then, my boss (the tyrant that lives in the back of my head) was really horrible and still made me reply e-mails and do admin work which amounted to more hours than it takes to squeeze an orange entirely dry with your bare hands.
In the end, I only had time to play ten minutes of Tales of Vesperia. The rest of Sunday was spent watching an entire season of Heroes with the Goonfather because that is infinitely more rewarding and less painless than watching an entire season of slapstick with the Goonfather. I thank the stars that Adam Sandler does not have a TV series.
So, yeah. I like to think that I’m entertaining because I’m randomly unpredictable.
But I don’t think I really am. I think I’m just randomly random.
I’m also just a sick girl whose flu virus has now progressed to the coughing stage so, tonight, we shall have a showdown, me and the Goonfather. My coughs vs. his guffaws.
Well, perhaps you could just read my blog out of pity.
