New Deletion Policy | Main | Atrios-Style Blogging Begins
November 22, 2005

Has Anyone Ever Read Atrios' Blog?

I never really have. I just did. It's, oh, what's the word?, really, really, very really bad.

I don't even mean I dislike his politics. Of course I dislike his politics. But I mean -- it's just a bad blog.

I feel this blog is very often very crappy. Some days I post a minimum of original content; other days I can only manage a couple of lame wisecracks. Sometimes I attempt some sort of commentary but quickly realize I'm just repeating myself.

But... Atrios doesn't seem to sweat that. Check out this, um, economy of posting in the past couple of days:

Open Thread

Onward through the thread, onward through the night of my life.

Still full of shit after all these years. [Note: That's a link, as are most of the other one-liners that follow the title.]

Peeholes Media

All the secrets revealed.

That's a link to a HI-larious fake press release about "Peeholes Media," so called because the founders are said to "pee themselves" whenever someone who looks Muslim comes within thirty feet. Or thirty yards. Whatever, I'm sure the hell not going back to click on it to make sure.

Peeholes Media? This is a link-worthy liberal humor piece? Now I get why Wonkette is at the top of the liberal humorist pack.

Now we continue... with no edits. The next post follows the one above:

Legitimate Right of Resistance

So, Iraqi leaders say that insurgents have the legitimate right to kill US soldiers.

Why are we there?

Crazy Jean

So, apparently Jean Schmidt is just a total liar.

Nice to hide behind one marine to call another marine a coward.

Sounds like Jean's taken her eye off the ball. NO! NOT THE BALL! The BALL WILL COME BACK AND HARM US!

No thread can take your place, you know what I mean. We have the same intrigue as a court of kings.

Looking for Ponies in All the Wrong Places

Eugene Robinson in the WaPo:

[Long quote from Robinson, with no commentary whatsoever.]

No edits. No edits. I did not skip any substantive posts in that run. The top post of today is a three paragraph jobber, but it's just about his traffic, which is inside baseball crap.

How many Open threads can this idiot open? In one spell he opens up, what, three of them in five posts?

Now, I kind of get this. Believe me, I am not so blind that I don't get that a lot of my traffic is due to my commenters wanting to read... my commenters, and not so much me. People find an agreeable crew and want to post together. I've been lucky in that respect, more lucky than many more deserving bloggers.

Let's just say that Atrios, though, who got something close to 200,000 pageviews yesterday, is especially blessed. The guy is getting a million hits a week from one word links and two or three open threads a day.

I am more tempted than ever to start a liberal blog, just for the crazy blog money. This is the level of the competition? On the right side of the blogosphere are heavy hitters like LGF, Powerline, Malkin, Capt'n Ed, Belmont Club, etc. People I couldn't possibly hope to leap past.

But on the left... it's Atrios and Kos.

Atrios. Atrios of sixteen Open Threads a week, and substantive posts like "Why are we there?" and "Wanker of the Week: The Washington Post [End entry]."

Getting paid for not working at all... well, I guess that is the liberal way.
