Sometimes I work very hard on a post, hoping it would sparkle a discussion, provoke a controversy, or at least attract a decent number of comments. But then I get frustrated because that post would go unheard of, as if it never was. And sometime I carelessly write a one-line post, out of boredom or because I had nothing better to do, and I find myself faced with some very interesting comments from readers; comments that worth to be a separate blog posts by themselves. Most bloggers know that, and know how does it feel (and no, I’m not talking about those newbies who write two posts and start complaining about traffic).
Few months ago, I wrote a post out of frustration, and thought it won’t receive any comments, because, well, it was not that good. However, the post received some comments, one of which has accused me that my only point of writing the post was to hook up with girls. Actually, that post has a story. I started writing it after I was back from Ikea frustrated, and as I usually do with posts that contain more than one paragraph, I slept on it for several days.
When I returned to the post, I read it and found it dry and tasteless, so I thought I would spice things up a little by adding an innocent joke at the end; nothing more, nothing less. I was just trying to be sarcastic, which I apparently failed to do. But few days ago, I received some new comments on that post, and one of them actually included a real mobile number (I removed the comment). I was surprised, to say the least. How about you? What do you think?
