Shortly, there will be a new audio piece up on the Radio page. Link here.
Secondly, ages ago you may remember that I did a piece on the spam comments on this site, going through them and just generally laughing at them. I was intending to do this at other points, just for a laugh really, but never got round to it.
I do fairly regularly check through the spam comment folder on this site, mainly because in the past I have missed genuine comments that have been marked as spam. None of them really seemed to be as amusing as they were when I made that first post ages ago, which is possibly why I haven’t bothered keeping up the giggles (not that there really were any). Most are done by an automated system with the idea of making it sound like a proper comment, but actually is just a front to link you to sites that steal your information – one that seems to be the most easy to trick people with is one that says something like ‘good content, but your site is broken in xyz browser’. Anyway, I digress.
The reason for coming up with this now is that in the spam folder this evening, I come across two messages:
Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche. Very good blog!
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
Ironically, the two posts were on the same entry on the site, both of which were a radio piece with no text. So apparantly, when I post a radio piece (which I will be doing shortly, or have done shortly depending on what the opening paragraph of this post reads), I should include some ‘great images or videos’, but also not ‘waste my intelligence on just posting videos’.
I guess reading and videos is just old hat now. I’ll stick to audio.
