Some thoughts on internet etiquette,

Dear readers,

A longtime follower of “Cool McCool’s Garage” recently posted a comment here, which consisted solely of a link to her Craigslist ad for her vintage trailer.

I am all for entrepreneurship, free enterprise, the American way, and flattered that this person believes our blog is widely read enough to help sell her trailer, but…

My blog is my “Happy Place”, not a place to link ads, post stuff for sale, or try make a buck. If it were, I would be doing it.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled nonsense….

    Well put Brian. I for one enjoy all of your nonsense.

    I am glad you stated that it isn’t appropriate to “advertise” on your blog. We are definitely on overload when it comes to sales. How refreshing – an opportunity to read without disturbance or intrusion. Thank you.

      Me too! My pet peeve is people posing ads to everything and anything of FB, clogging the feed with CL ads. Of course, if it was for something I really wanted, I might feel differently, like the ’50 Chevy Tin Woody wagon my buddy just snagged here in west Michigan for chump change…

    I enjoy the nonsense, too. How do you do it all? Coffee achiever?
