Okay, I have a gripe. I've been blogging for about two months now and I try to post something new every 3 or 4 days (or so). I also try my best to at least have the main subject of my blog, no matter in how many tangents I go off, to be martial arts related.
It is getting tougher.
Since I am newer to martial arts, I don't have all these wise insights yet. (I know occasionally, something terribly profound comes out, but it's usually a fluke, but not always!)
Over at the Aikido & Judo blog http://www.mokurendojo.com/, blogger Patrick Parker gives kudos to 3 other m.a. bloggers who have great blogs but haven't posted in awhile. I commented, telling him I thought that was a great idea. (Although these bloggers weren't major offenders like some I've seen on TopList. I actually believe some of them have decided to no longer blog for whatever reason.)
So, here's my gripe (and yes, also finally my point)...I joined TopList of Martial Arts Blogs when I started MAM in June. I was the last blog listed - number 96 at the time. Now I'm 101! And I blog regularly and I don't think the things I write are that boring or lame that I can't even beat out the bloggers who haven't posted since December of 2007!!!!
Hey, I'm not asking to be number one. Or even number twenty. I just want a respectable place amongst my blogging peers...peers that post more than once every 8 months! So, I emphatically beg you...RATE MY BLOG...PLEASE!!!!! (oh, yeah, and I hope you won't just rate it, but actually READ it sometimes as well!) Thanks!!!
