Why I Read My Blog Spam

"Major tanks for this post!" "I been searching everywhere for this information."

"You willy have way with words."

Only the bad grammar and the Russian sounding names give them away. The comments are from spammers. I awake every morning to dozens and dozens of them. Luckily WordPress catches most of them, quarantines them and then offers them up to me for perusing. I know they will all be spam, yet I still find myself quickly reviewing the comments. In a world where it can be hard to develop any sort of readership (besides you Beth! :)) I find the quirky comments left by spammers strangely uplifting. They are all always so positive. I take what I can get.
