WARNING – THIS IS A RANT – IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ IT – STOP READING NOW!!
OK - this has been bothering me for a while -
And - mind you -
This is only my opinion -
And I could be wrong -
I was checking my stats the other day –
And saw a new blog listed under “Referring URLs” and “Referring Sites” -
When I see new referral sites –
Sometimes I want to visit them –
Just to see how/why they are referring readers to me –
I’m curious –
What are they saying about me?
Do they have one of my buttons?
Here I am one day – and I click on the “link” –
And – this is what I got -
BLOGGER: PERMISSION DENIED
This blog is open to invited readers only
(site address – blogspot.com – deleted for this rant)
It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation.
You're signed in as (also deleted for this rant) – Sign in with a different account
Now – I admit – I may be overreacting –
And I don’t want to start a war or anything –
AND – this is just my opinion –
There was something about that message that rubbed me the WRONG way!!
Let me see if I got this right –
You can read my blog –
And refer other readers to my blog –
Thanks, by the way - ;)) -
I need an INVITATION to read yours??
And how exactly do I “contact the blog author and request an invitation” –
If I don’t know who the hell it is?
And who says I would even want to request an invitation anyway?
I don’t know anything about it -
And apparently can’t find out - either -
And what makes your blog so special that only INVITED READERS can read it?
OK – I’ll stop now –
The blogger is probably a real nice lady –
And has her reasons for limiting her readership to invitation only –
But – that REALLY rubbed me the wrong way!!
Can you tell?? ;))
Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew -
