9 Sincere Reasons Why You Should Not Read My Blog

Woman walking away

I sincerely think that my blog is rather peculiar, and that you, as a person with plenty of things to do and not much free time, should not bother with it. Read Shakespeare instead.


Each time you leave a comment on my blog you receive an invisible gift. Why would you want such a thing?


No good products or services for sale. I am only a humble merchant of emotions. Sell me your attention and in return I can trade you a smile, a laugh, or even some sorrow.


The word very is mentioned only once in my posts, in this sentence. It does not appear in any other post, nor will it ever do.


I rarely post photos, or videos on my blog. Almost all my images are paintings.


I am not on Facebook. You won’t find the fancy Facebook like button here.


I don’t watch TV or listen to the news, and so I have no idea what is going on in the modern world. This is not the place for news or trends, of any kind.


Some have accused me of being flirty.


I mention hats often, an idiosyncrasy you might find annoying. I wear a hat.


I am impractical and cannot offer tips or advice on any subject. I can say the alphabet backward in less than 5 seconds though, and I can also spell antidisestablishmentarianism correctly, and I think these rare talents compensate.


Stranger, if we will ever pass by each other on the street, we will not know that once we have been connected by a post you happened to read…

  1. Ah, but I don’t want to read Shakespeare, and I like invisible gifts. I am political only during election years, and don’t often wear a hat. But when I do I will not expect flowers or troubadours.

  2. If you truly don’t want us to read, then stop posting. Otherwise, you are not sincere in suggesting reasons why we should not read.
    Your list is very good, and I like the art you choose for each post.
    Maybe we’re not reading. Maybe we’re listening.

  3. Iโ€™ve stumbled into your world quite by happenstance, or perhaps quite by purpose, depending on which side of the line you are standing. Of course.

  4. I also think your sincere reasons are pretty lame.

    I never left comments for the invisible gifts. For to make you happy the whole day, yes, but not for the gift.

    I very much like your blog. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. My cats really enjoy playing with the invisible gifts you send, usually very late at night… which probably means during the day in Romania. Is there a way of resetting the invisible gifts to my time zone?

  6. I read your blog sometimes and what I love is your beautiful choice for paintings , of course your stories too.
    I also really appreciate your stopping by my blog everyday . Just want to say happy to have someone with hat in my blog ๐Ÿ˜ƒโค
    Lots of thanks Vincent ๐Ÿ˜ƒโค

      1. Thank you so much Vincent. I’m so glad to hear thatโค
        Unfortunately I don’t raw persons beacuase I’m not good in portrait.
        Waoooo, would like to know who is the painter๐Ÿ˜ƒ?

  7. You are accused of being flirty? I shall have to follow more closely. Television is sedation at best and a sower of discontent. As far as idiosyncrasies go, covering your pate with a stylish hat is about as good as it gets. I remain unconvinced; I’m going to keep reading.

  8. …an older post which I adore. Dearest, it is because of all of the above reasons that I *should* read your blog. The value of human emotion should not be underestimated.

  9. I don’t watch TV nor do I wish to read Shakespeare again, I believe Facebook is something nobody now ever looks at anymore. I sometimes think of myself as the invisible rabbit and sometimes hop over to your blog just to see what you’re doing. And, regarding number 9: since you can spell that word correctly, can you spell this one?…

  10. Hello hatted boy – I will try to read Shakespeare more but for now in the dark and quiet of the house when the others are sleeping it’s nice to read what you are thinking too. I thought writing a blog would give me a glorious anonymity but I have already met two great people from writing (nonsense for my part) – one near to home and one very far away. So perhaps if we do ever pass in the street we shall be strangers no more.

  11. The boy with the hat:)
    You are a delight to read… amusing aint it?? we are still going to be reading You! O:)


  12. Ah, but hatted boy I can think of a plenthos of reasons why i should dwell in the heart of your pen :
    1. My life is tiresome and I am ambitious, your blog compensates for the dearth of relaxation i get..a post, reminds me that I AM also a writer, as well as a student.
    2.It makes me deeply thoughtful,which inspires my imagination, which helps me write
    3 . Its lovely and so are you.
    4. You are flirtatious and its marvelous the things you say ๐Ÿ™‚
    5. Your words color my dreams, that are other wise monochrome

  13. it is every reason you have posted that makes me want to read your blog more and more. after reading several posts it didn’t take long for me to see the talent in your writing. any post that’s makes me smile and laugh or even cry is a post worth reading ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished
    to say that I have really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.
    After all I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  15. Classes tend to be taught by trainers who have present real-world experience,
    including consulting and designing social media approaches for organizations large and tiny.

If you leave me a comment I will send you an invisible gift.
