Much has been written on how be a good blog host. Much less has been written on how to be a bad blog host.
I thought it was time to change all that, so I took matters into my own hands and below is the results.
Here are 10 strategies you can try. Do one or do all ten, I guarantee you will have the reputation you deserve!
#1. Just ignore everyone who comes on your blog. That’s right just pretended they don’t exist, I mean what do you owe these people anyway? All you owe them is a good blog post, right?
#2.Only reply to your friends, relatives, or those comments that particularly strike your fancy. I mean if you encourage all the pathetic losers out there, they’ll keep coming back and bothering you on your blog, who wants that?
#3. Don’t answer blog replies individually, but instead answer 3-4 people at a time. I mean who has time to answer all these nice people who took time out of their day to read your blog and have posted a reply? Certainly not you!
#4. Never reply to those who just tweet that they liked your blog post. If they want you to reply to them, then make em’ come on your blog to reply. Some people need to be put in place.
#5.Argue with your guests. Give them something to think about! The harsher you can sound the better and try using the caps lock often.
#6.Make people fill in a form every time they want to leave you a reply. People love filling out forms! Robot’s don’t, that is known fact! So captcha this!
#7.Tweet your blog 10-15 times in a row. I cannot over empathize this one enough! If you really want to annoy people this is the way to go!
#8.If you are in doubt, just assume that the reply left for your post was meant in the most nasty way possible and give it back to them with both barrels.
#9. Write a nasty blog post aimed at recent blog comments you found particular irksome and be sure to name names. No good if you don’t name names.
#10.Leave em’ hanging. Do the disappearing act with no explanations what so ever. Make sure you are very random when doing this. Make it weeks, then a month, then several months; repeat cycle. Never explain anything! I mean you don’t owe these people anything, do you?
That is my list and I probably, at one time, was guilty of number #7. What would you add to the list of how to be a bad blog host?
