While I am a being of the highest enlightenment I am also a tremendously sulky bastard. Recently I have tried to post various ‘critical’ comments. While I haven’t said bad things about other Blogs (I am magnanimous enough not to expect my own high standards from other lesser mortals) I have made observations about poetry or writing, where I feel it’s strong, where I struggled to ‘get it’.
When I started Blogging it was such feedback I sought, so I give it. In some cases this has been accepted, in others I find I am treated as a monstrous beast for daring to offer my opinion.
Fair enough, call me a monstrous beast for the dread things I do with badgers on each solstice (notice ‘with’, not ‘to’ – they enjoy it, but I know the public could never understand), but not for my attempts to correct typo’s, grammatical failings, or make creative suggestions.
Despite my magnificently sized
peni ego, it’s actually difficult to comment on people’s work. I can’t pretend to be an expert (because it’s true 😉 ) and I make it clear that I offer a point of view, not a ‘do it my way or what the raging f*k are you blogging for anyway you typographically inept, metaphor mangling, testicle-brained arse!’
So here’s a blatantly comment-prostituting cue – what do you think. Because seriously, I’ve considered becoming a kind of “comment-hater” or “artful-blogger” (THAT’S MY F*N NAME NOW, I JUST MADE IT UP! – what? It’s what? Bloody obvious? Used by loads of people already! I’m a walking (typing) cliche! – oh crap…)
Stuff that then, just tell me, is WordPress a place for feedback, or should I just piss off to “pretentious-verbal-masturbators-comment-on-each-others-seminal-works.com”?
Or should I just piss off!? 😉
