How to be a Super Famous Blogger


First, let me say that I’m consistently flattered and amazed by the number of people who do read whatever scratchings I put up on the Internet.

Still, I occasionally wonder whether I could build the blog into something more … impressive. While I’m pleased with my follower count, I’m also aware that most of them are spambots and deactivated accounts. So … there’s room for improvement. There was a day when somebody important said I was the Best Political Tumblr. But that was 2008. Now? I don’t rank a mention on the spotlight. Not that I’m hurt or bitter or anything. (That’s actually mostly true.)

I suspect the primary reason I’m not a SUPER FAMOUS BLOGGER is because I just don’t care enough to put in the hours it would take or make the compromises necessary to get a bigger following. Or maybe I’m afraid of failure. But, for those who *want to be Super Famous Bloggers, I have a few rules you could follow. (I can’t be bothered to follow them.)

Everybody should be reading the fantastic Tumblr of squashed!

I do not conduct much self-promotion either and often, too, I am prone to posting content that infuriates the 95% that are usually pleased with the output tidings here at the AZspot ranch.
