CDA Mom: Why Publicize X-Press Blog?

CDA Mom: It suprises me that a blog on x-press can continue to exist based solely on bashing another blog. What is likewise suprising is that Huckleberries is giving the “other blog” any attention at all. My Mom always told me that when my brother would act out (cuz I am an angel), he did so to get attention, whether good or bad. Through life, I have found that shinning light on juvenile behavior does nothing but give attention to bad behavior. DFO, to an extent this thread is no better than the x-press blog. Prior to this thread, I had heard about the other blog, but had no interest in it because I thought it was just sour grapes. But today I actually went there to see what all the noise was about. Ironically, you are probably giving their blog attention. I pray they will find more interesting important things to blog about.

Bent: Just got back from the Press site and Tolle has posted a link to his new Blog … called Not Huckleberries. I tried to post a link but apparently doesn’t pass the spam filters … go check it out its funny.

OrangeTV: Another one for the blogroll, DFO … How cool … you must be doing something right if you’ve inspired not one,but two anti-HBO sites. Funny stuff …

DFO: If they’re cussing you, they’re discussing you — and drawing the attention of their crowd to Huckleberries. It’s free publicity. Once the newcomers see what we’re doing, some will stay and add to what we’re doing here. The new sites are proof that Huckleberries has an impact. Why bother otherwise? They’ll be mentioned here as other North Idaho blogs are, particularly if they really go tinfoil. But they’ll find it’s hard to sustain a blog on hatred of all things DFO/HBO/SR, especially the mature ones.
