Robert Hugill was criticized harshly for blogging. Wow. If I’d received that I would have been rather shaken, since I’m so darn wimpy and take harsh words badly. But he simply posted the hostile email for us and then responded.

But what I want to know is why the heck is that angry person bothering to read a blog if he thinks blogs are horrible? I don’t like tomatoes so I don’t eat them. I don’t care for country western music so I don’t listen to it. I don’t like horror movies so I don’t watch them.

What is it about the people who hate something immensely yet indulge in it, mock it, or otherwise treat it with hostility? Maybe that’s what Robert should have asked? 🙂

(And now I suppose I’ll get a harsh email myself. I’m bracing for it! I’ll be brave. I’ll be strong. I’ll go have some chocolate.)


  1. If somebody emailed that to me, I would have just laughed at it. Really, if you think blogging is dumb, why are you bothering to lecture bloggers about it?

  2. I guess i should have a better sense of humor and learn to laugh at things like this too, Lisa!

    I should write a blog entry “Why Read?” in honor of that blog reader who hates blogs, eh?
