For those who have just joined, I usually do my “Lolsy’s Libraries Lessons of Life” in a picture quote, but something just tickled my funny bone and it wasn’t going to fit in a picture quote.
One of the things (I think I may have written about it before) I find really funny about people are the people who constantly have to talk about what they hate. You know, when a article is put anywhere, Facebook, general news sites…That sort of thing and people have this almost, need, to comment either about the journalism sucks or is this really news?
Why they make me laugh so much, it’s because do they not get, that they are creating “traffic” for that site. Every time they look at a page, every time they comment, every time they like a comment, whether that be their own or someone else’s. These page DO NOT CARE if you don’t like the new article or not, they do not care if you like the journalism or not, chances are they aren’t even reading your comments. If you giving these journalist traffic on their articles, they will be kept on and they will keep reporting.
A couple of things I can suggest if you honestly want to see less of these articles popping up in your feed. Unfollow everything, don’t go on the pages that you don’t want too (which seems like common sense…but you know people and common sense these days). On Facebook and the news article on there you can select to not see particular articles. I don’t see anything about certain reality tv families anymore etc.
You can literally take this sort of stuff out of your life, if you REALLY want too. If you don’t, maybe you should ask yourself why,lol
There is something that really intrigues me and I would really love to hear your opinions on it or if you are one these people who do this, to please explain what this need this.
What is with this seemingly big NEED that some people have to write on news articles or ‘entertainment’ type articles about how they “don’t care” they have “real news to read” and is this article really “newsworthy”. What are they doing there then? Personally, when I see an article I’m not interested in I skip pass it. I actually asked someone this question because I find it really intriguing, that whole thought process. Of creating traffic for something you don’t care about, rather than creating traffic and focusing on the things you do. Then boasting about how you don’t care, like it’s some great feat and accomplishment that you just HAD to write that?
I am like 99% sure no one is making these people read these articles. So why are they even reading these articles for? Do they not have enough to care about? Do they have a lot of free time that they have the time to focus on things they don’t care about?
I have always said that the Kardashians are being kept in our public eye, not because of their fans, but because of their haters. They are making their numbers and money from their haters. For example, the amount of articles I have seen people comment and re-share articles about them is literally in the thousands…but…they “hate” them? Yet my brother and his friends seem to really like them, yet I rarely hear them talk about them. I only found that they like them last year, when my brother was over for a visit and there was a Kardashian marathon on the tv…We had to watch it all day -.-
For those who may not know what I mean by “traffic”. It means when you click on a article online, or you comment online, you are creating “traffic” that the website keeps tracks of to see, what people are interested in and what the public is talking about. They don’t care what you deem “newsworthy” or what “real news” is, or if you like the article or not. What they focus on is the numbers that each article receives. So by you “not caring” and clicking on a article you don’t “care” about, it creates interests and so that site will continue to talk about it.
Even take WordPress, how many of us have edited our Blogs and write about topics that interest people more than what we actually want to write about, based on the views, discussions and likes we have gotten for our posts.

Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?
I would rather take the pictures, than be in them. When I’m feeling pretty though I might take a picture of myself or a “selfie”. No one see’s them, I use to post them on Facebook, but people would pay me out too much (even though plenty of others were doing the exact same thing…Who knows why one can and one can’t). I did actually have an Instagram for a while, but I got bored of it pretty quickly.
Where do you like to vacation?
I LOVE Queensland! The people are gorgeous, the weather is pretty much always lovely 90% of the time. It’s a great place to be, if I ever won the lottery I would definitely buy a holiday house there.
If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?
