06/03/2004: "Blog review of The Blog Review"

I figure I'll cast the first stone. Not that this dork will ever find my blog unless someone tells him, but I just had to comment. There's a new blog "expert" in town and his name is Max Punkt. His first 7 posts tell a story of a reviewer that doesn't like much of anything, unless he writes it himself (the first one being a review of my friend over at Cellar Door). He first goes after a few small personal blogs and doesn't have anything good to say. He does like to comment on those blogs and get a little heated debate going with their readers, who don't really like Max much, as you can imagine. Instead of giving his review and letting it stand, he feels the need to argue with the readers or owners of the blogs in some weird attempt to justify his worth (or self worth). Whether he's like this in person or not, I have no idea, but you can just picture him as the guy that wants to argue with you over the most trivial of things (also knows as that asshole no one invited, but showed up anyway). I'm not a writer. I'm a photographer. I write in this blog because it's kind of fun. Nothing more. Nothing less. I can't imagine anyone would want to critique it or any other personal blog out there. It just doesn't make sense to me. So, if you get a comment from Max Punkt, chances are it's his announcement to you that he has reviewed your blog. It's probably best to ignore it. His seventh post is a different story. He's moved on to bigger targets like: Boing Boing. I hope that he stays there. They will either ignore him or bring down a wrath so heavy that he will be crushed. I'll put my money on ignore.

Not to crash the party, but if he has Blogger stats and actually checks it, he'll find out about this soon enough. heh.

I assumed he would find out eventually and that doesn't bother me. Someone reading this will post a comment over there or he'll see me in his stats, but I figured I'd just let it happen instead of making it happen. I'm sure he'll slam my writing as if that means anything.

Wow, I think we found the Simon Cowell of Blogspot. Where's Paula and Randy when you need them?

I have never seen the term "chalk full" for chock full before. I've been PLUNKT!

Uh, Patricia. I have no idea what you're talking about. :-)

Brooks said @ 06/06/2004 10:29 PM PST

Sorry, I shouldn't have been so obscure. In his critique of the Medieval Scandinavian from San Francisco he said the blog is "chalk full of bloated passages."

Just critiquing his critiques! Thanks for pointing him out. With more people looking over his shoulder his critiques may have to start meeting a higher standard.

And you're right -- you're just posting for fun. How would we feel if you started critiquing our family photo albums for form and style? "Bad composition with subjects' limbs cut off...."

Patti said @ 06/07/2004 08:15 AM PST

OK. I didn't remember that in his review. I'm trying to forget what he said. :-) Here's to funblogging!
