I’ve mentioned before how I feel about “Likes” on my blog, but I think I should reiterate for those of you who don’t Follow me…
They’re FUCKING WORTHLESS! >:P
If you don’t Follow my blog, I couldn’t give a shit less whether or not you “Like” what I wrote!
For those of you that haven’t figured it out yet (And here, I’m writing to my readers, as disingenuous “Like”-ers [hereafter, called D-Lickers]) actually never read what you’ve written!), D-Lickers are those WordPress assholes that go around looking at the titles of blog posts that they might ostensibly like and then superficially click the Like button, hoping that some uneducated WP writer will be a dumbass enough to throw them a hit, even though by doing so they don’t throw YOU one!
That’s why when you’re just starting off, you can sometimes notice more Likes than actual Views on your blog. It’s because of THOSE ASSHOLE D-Lickers!
Well, that shit irritates the fuck out of me! I’m a WRITER, god damn it, and I write in order TO BE READ! I don’t give a shit about D-Licker “Likes”!! That’s the WP version of masturbation – it’s disturbing to watch, doesn’t do a thing for me, and only benefits YOU. You selfish motherfuckers.
In fact, D-Lickers won’t even be reading this. I’m only writing it to vent and to warn my Followers so that they don’t end up clicking on a D-Licker’s Like. FUCK them! Their bullshit stars that appear up there in the top right make me SICK!
And while I’m on the subject, I have to admit to a modicum of disingenuousness on my own part (which made me a little sick to perpetrate – but was done in order to embody the personage I like the least in the job world [a "salesman"], but thought was necessary to get this thing done).
Now that the whole “Xeresgate Funding Campaign” is two days old, and did practically nothing to help my situation, I can say this. “Every $1 helps” is only true if everyone only gives a dollar (Otherwise, if only one person gives, it should be “Every $1,000 helps”!)
And you know what? That’s pretty cheap. And I don’t mean “cheap” as in “inexpensive”, either. I mean “cheap” as in “miserly“! Hell, every dollar counts for me now that I’m down to my last two loaves of bread, but I still tipped the bagger (at the Associated grocery store) all of my change yesterday… like 80-some cents! That’s a lot for me, I can’t even really afford it, but I’m a giver! And you know what? I DON’T UNDERSTAND people that AREN’T!
Karma can be a real bitch, people… and while I genuinely do appreciate the three people that have helped to pass my message along (Thanks again, guys.), in the end the only thing that puts a few meager groceries in my room (and possibly helps me to keep being in a room, and not out on the streets) is the money.
Out of the 174 views that that post got, the 104 visitors it brought to my blog, and the 47 D-Lickers it attracted, ONE LADY donated $2 (out of which, PayPal only passes on $1.64). I picture her in my mind as a poor, old widow lady on a fixed income that saw my post and decided to have the one thing that NONE of the rest of you had… a HEART!
Considering it doesn’t matter what I say (I’ll be broke regardless!), then I can say this: you all are CHEAP! One fucking dollar isn’t much, you selfish assholes, and you STILL wouldn’t do that! Let me tell you something…
If every visitor had given $1… I’d be able to eat next week!
If every visitor had given $2… I’d be able to eat for two weeks!
If every visitor had given $5… I wouldn’t have to worry about September’s RENT!
(And you know what? It doesn’t matter how much food you have, if you have to eat it out on the street!)
You know those tithes and offerings that you smugly put in the plate at your church every Sunday? You had a chance to HELP someone, and you turned your back on it! (Your Sunday offerings are WORTHLESS!)
You know those “pennies a day” that you send off to the Christian Children’s Fund and other bullshit charities that “help” kids in Africa that YOU NEVER SEE? DISINGENUOUS!
And the next time you splurge by paying monthly for Netflix, Hulu Plus, or any of the hordes of useless entertainment BULLSHIT that you assholes spend money on online, know that the 6’4″ guy in NYC that has no choice left but to be mugging your ass right now in order to eat… is there because YOU PUT HIM THERE!
Merry fucking Christmas, you MISERS. >:(
