Kings of Pain

Butt-Hurt is a serious and devastating condition that afflicts bloggers who feel marginalized because they do not get enough linky-love or are “not good enough forinclusion in certain bloggers’ associations, or events about blogging, that if not quickly diagnosed and treated can lead to infighting, Blog Wars, and other very serious Blogging syndromes such as: feeling like Chopped LiverBlogger Mood Disorder, SiteMeter Envy, and, perhaps the most devastating of them all, Blogger Burnout. The only known effective treatments for Butt Hurt and other serious related blogging afflictions are Instalanches and Tip Jar Hits.

I am grieved to report that the terrible disease known as Butt-Hurt has claimed yet another victim. It all started when a famously perpetually Butt-Hurt Blogger inadvertently neglected to include a link to THIS in THIS, that got Instalanched (which can generate a good amount of second-hand Insta-traffic to whoever the ‘lanched post has linked to), and the lack of recognition and accompanying traffic led to THIS, but, fortunately, it was resolved by THIS. Unfortunately, the incident now appears to have spawned the outbreak of a new syndrome, King-of-Pain-itus, which causes bloggers to compete to see whose Butt-Hurt affliction is worse that will surely cause unforeseen amounts of collateral damage: like if the participants of this new sick contest fail to link to me for writing about it and I proclaim myself the Queen of Butt-Hurt, for example.

Stacy and Paul, you have left me no choice but to bring in The Police:


Inside BloggerBall note:
If you get your hands on a hot tip or exclusive intel pertaining to a big story and do not wish to become a victim of the terrible blogger’s affliction known as Butt-Hurt, be aware that the lion’s share of the glory tends to go to whoever publishes that information first, and even a hat-tip link to you (while wonderful in its own right) usually will not be picked up by other bloggers who link to the ‘breaking news’ – so your best route to glory is to publish it yourself and let everyone else come to your place for the goods first.
