No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

What draws comments?

This is the Emergency Blogging System. It has been activated because steveegg is out fishing until 9/12. This is not a drill; drills go Black-and-Decker-Black-and-Decker-Black-and-Decker.

It never ceases to amaze me what does and does not draw comments. Let’s take a quick look at a pair of recent posts here on No Runny Eggs. First, we have a post about weather that was in the process of rolling through as it was written Sunday morning. It didn’t even have any cool pics or “here’s the rain” in it (that was still to the north and west as it was posted), but it still drew 4 comments, the last a day after.

Next, we have a semi-humorous take on the upset of the Sausage Racing season. If you’re not a regular reader (which means you probably got here from the L Badger Carnival over on RealDebateWisconsin, it’s stuff that’s usually found on Dennis York’s blog. Despite it being funnier than the average post here (that’s not saying much :-) , it hadn’t received a single comment as of Tuesday evening when this missive was sent out.

‘Tis a good thing I don’t give too much of a flying bomb about stats ;-)
