2010 Questions/Answers Installment 15



Scott's Tip Of The Day: I received the following email today.....

Hi,
Specific question 1: Do you bother addressing negative comments, or just delete them and move on?
2. Have any of the bloggers you've asked flat out refused to add a link or are most people generally cool about that?
3. You've been pretty open about using your name, no one's stalked you or anything weird?

thanks again,

~Jessica


Thanks for the email, Jessica.

1. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. My opinion is always the right one though. So I don't really go crazy when someone doesn't like what I'm putting out there. You can't please everyone. My sense of humor isn't for everyone. Sometimes I find the negative reactions funny. Like when I posted about pregnancy tests. If you're foolish enough to take that seriously, you aren't worth arguing with. If a negative comment is constructive criticism, I'll take it seriously. If it's a difference of opinion, I don't worry about it.

2. Bloggers have definitely flat out refused to link to me. I haven't really looked to exchange links in awhile, but when I first started blogging I was doing it a lot. Some bloggers were really rude, pompous, arrogant and dismissive. Others were friendly and encouraging. You're throwing a lot of crap at the wall and some of it's gonna stick. But most of it will just kind of fall off the wall and land on your carpet creating an awful mess that leaves you wondering why you thought it was a good idea to throw doody at the wall in the first place.

3. I only started really being open about my identity recently. So far no stalkers. Keep your fingers crossed for me! I have gotten a lot of nice fan mail from you guys though and I appreciate it a lot. If you have any other questions feel free to hit me up at scottstipoftheday@gmail.com.

Those answers are perfect!
Though it's gonna take a while to get the crap analogy out of my head. . . and in writing that anal-ogy seemed like a good word to use. . .

I'm trying to get used to this whole commenting thing, but I do enjoy reading everything you have to say; even though I don't say it very often.

Scott!!!

I'm new to the 'blogging' scene, but LOVE your blogs. I'm hooked! And no, I won't stalk you, that seems to require too much time and effort on my part. But hey, maybe next time. LOL

Just curious, do you only have one 'tip of the day' come to you or do you have a notebook to write the topics of the tips in, as they come to you or as you think of them?

Also, did JD ever reply to you?

Debz!

SCOTTY!!! :)
The way you describe stuff is just way too funny :) doody :) hahahaha have not heard that word in a long time :) Do people really take blogs like “Pregnancy Tests” seriously? WOW! Oh well, poor souls! I think you are hilarious and will gladly stalk you if you like? I think I would make an excellent stalker… I have encountered many creepy people in my life and think I could do a good job of it. I am also relentless when it comes to something I want and don’t stop until I get my way :) I however am not prepared to move to NYC… So I’ll just have to stalk you online :) I promise to be the good kind of stalker, you know the one who invites you on Facebook and comments on everything that has to do with you, then sends you 100 emails a day about nothing really… Not the kind that has pictures of you in the shower and secretly wants to skin you to wear your awesomeness like a Scotty Coat… So what do you say? May I have the job? :) hahaha

Hilarious as usual.
Swap links with me? http://ggloudspeaker.blogspot.com
I think people would've taken your preg post in the right spirit if the pic was a caroon or something instead of a real worried woman...
Btw, is your e-mail id what it looks like? It looks like one which is made just for the blog questions...
