Sympathy Hits

Oh, come on. We all do it.

The blog sucks, but we like the blogger, so we deliver the "sympathy hit."

We smile, having done our good deed of the day, then we panic, stop and smell the metaphorical pits...

Oh shit! Is someone sympathy hitting me??

That would suck.

Thankfully, I'm not exactly alone in this realization.

Hi Key! Well, as I commented over at Dax's place:

While some blogs in other people's Blogrolls may indeed be "sympathy blogs," that ain’t the case with mine!

Every one of the blogs in Linkage and Blogroll sections are Grade-A, Prime, 100%-Certified GOOD BLOGS. Trust me.

Damn straight I'll defend my blog-buddies! Uh, and my judgment, too... :-)

Not really sympathy, but gratitude and loyalty. I've got a friend who blogs roughly every month and a half. But he's my old friend and was the very first person to link to me. He stays as long as both of us have a blog.

Oh, great... ANOTHER thing to get a complex about. Now I'll wonder why I'm on people's blogrolls.


I'm like David, I only link to blogs I read.

Yes, I like my blogroll too! I didn't mean to give anyone a complex!

The number of unbearably boring are actually few and far between in these parts, but I have been there.

BTW, if you think you might suck, you don't. Those who do have no clue...

And to be objective, I must admit "one man's trash, another's treasure."

Hey, rice cakes might be bland IMHO, but somebody's buying them.
