The one million spam march

I have not been in my dashboard for such a long time that WordPress is actually holding a grudge against me. Even though I click the box that says, “Remember me,” it won’t.

I’ve also implored Chrome and Firefox to remember my password but it looks like they’re being passive-aggressive as well. Perhaps it’s time to suck up to my own blog as it has been hitting below the belt: It’s been fighting me on inserting my beloved Converse at the top of each post and that is totally unacceptable. I brought you into this world, blog, and I can take you right out of it, pal.

Forgive me blog, for I have sinned. It’s been too many months since I have given you the attention you deserve. I know my presence has been sketchy and I know I am still reluctant to commit to regular posting, but I am a work in progress.

Please accept my sincerest apology and meet me in the middle. Amen.

So I noticed an impressive statistic in my dashboard today. Akismet has caught 884,440 spam comments and now I want to reach one million. I have no idea what my spam-to-real-comment ratio is but if I’m going to reach my goal I’m going to have to commit to blogging, aren’t I?

I will not stack the deck, since I’m not sure how to do that, but I may throw the word spam around in the future just to see if it pushes me over 900,000. And if any of you want to help me reach my goal I would look the other way if you felt the need to throw two or more links into your comments.

Good day and good spamming.

    You are a riot!!! Love your passive aggressive conversation with your blog. As for WordPress not working with you on remembering your password…WP has something up it’s bloggy butt this week. I have signed on several times and checked the remember me. Perhaps, it’s just trying to let me know with certainty that I am just not all the memorable.

    As for the spam. I don’t think you have to blog regularly…or ever…The robo-spammers will continue to send spam to your address forever…really in 3013 there probably will be millions of spam comments in some spam folder for Cardiogirl.

    Speaking of our blog address lasting into the future…
    I was reading an article not long ago by a guy that had quit writing his blog a couple of years ago. He didn’t close it or delete it, he just quit posting….totally caput. He went on to say his followers had climbed over 10,000 during that two year period. Well crap…he doesn’t write at all and gets 10,000 followers and I write every Tuesday and Friday like clockwork…clearly some peoples blank pages are better than other peoples (by that I mean me) posts.

      You’re too kind, Cheryl — thank you. Yeah, I hate those people who have crazy success stories like that. I stopped posting and I now have millions of page view. It’s nuts.

      Obviously I’ve tried that route (see my blog posts from the last year) and I did not have those results.

    Does phone spam count? I get a lot of phone spam–you know all those calls that are supposed to be blocked by the Do Not Call List, but in reality I think it just seems to make it worse? Yeah, that’s what I call phone spam and I think I’m damn near a million on that count. I keep my house phone just so the phone spammers have someone to call these days. Yeah, you’re welcome, Spammers.

    I’ve never wished spam on anyone before, but the best of luck to you on your quest for a million filtered comments :)
