A kind reader sent me two articles yesterday that I read and I still feel…disturbed. Now that by itself is not unusual at all! But I was so disturbed AND my blood pressure rose so high that I felt this burning desire to sit down and write the mother of all rants. But, I realized I needed to finish yet another blog post so I just have to postpone that mega rant. Maybe over the weekend. I am just so tired of all the bloggers pushing and pushing credit cards over and over and over and over, so many repetitive useless filler posts with cc links slickly entered in the proper part of the sentence only to appear again in the next paragraph, at the end of the post, in an email and now even by direct messages on twitter. F**k me!!!!!!!!!! So, please stay tuned, I will have a hell of a time writing it and you will enjoy reading it (all of you who have no blogs or who do but are not deemed worthy enough to be blessed with the gazillions showered to the worthy ones from the affiliate network companies and banks).
MMS says: “I suggest using these methods only to help meet a minimum spending requirement and not to go overboard.” – Sure pal, like they will listen to you! The more people are attracted to this hobby, the more hogs get attracted too. And we all know what this means! Even though he always provides me with great material, I think we all read him because he lays it all out, let’s just admit it:-)
Travel Summary (again, take note!) writes if “Points Blogs are Changing Right before our eyes“?
Where else can you see stuff like the famous 10 million UA miler, the PointsGuy saying that he totally loved the Dreamliner toilet, some amazing elevators in the Houston Hyatt Regency, etc. Nice also to see many familiar faces. Warning: it is 15 mins long!
I have seen the word “rant” in three different places online today, did I start a movement here?
Thanks to you kind reader who made it all the way to the end! And to the kind person who emailed me a tutorial video on how to turn on the RSS feed in Blogger. I will get to it…someday, thanks!
Bloggers and other followers on twitter (please follow @FlyerTalkerinA2) keep making fun of me that I am being an idiot for ranting on banks and credit cards. They say I am commiting suicide by sabotaging my future monetization plans for the blog. Monetization plans for my blog, LOLOLOLOL. That sure made me laugh. As I said, I have been on this for a week and it’s been quite a ride. I am losing sleep for sure. If I was not self employed and had a supportive family this blog would not have lasted for a whole…week! I cherish my independence in my professional life and the ability and freedom to speak my mind. I will continue to do so and say things I feel like getting them out of my system! My therapist loves this new avenue of releasing my creative energies! If I hurt some bloggers by my rants, please note that I NEVER mean any malice! Take it as a sign of a maturing industry that has now attracted fierce critics and jokesters (think late night comedians and things of that sort). You should be proud, you have arrived. And the endless numbers of newb bloggers pretending to be experts and assaulting us with credit card links, I just want you to know that I have more coming for you so watch out. Hey, any PR is good PR right? Brace yourselves.
This reminds me of that Talking Heads song “Road to Nowhere“
