Full disclosure : I used to have a blog named “If you think you know me, you haven’t read my blog”
The blog wasn’t really popular, but it has its share of smart and engaging readers.
When the platform for my blog shut down, I still wanted to relive my glory days, and copied the majority of my posts that I thought were good on to WordPress, hoping I would have the same or at least some amount of success.
But when I copied my old posts, I gave the site a new name, a new theme to the posts, and kept myself incognito in general.
What I got random success.
What got me the most readers was mostly misleading posts, with click bait titles and suggestive images in the posts.
Because I never did it intentionally.
Devdas Syndrome, Carlinspeak and Shoe Fetish have become the most read posts for unintended reasons, and I am ashamed to admit that I won’t address or correct the issue fearing losing my accidental readers.
So I have a new title.
If you think you know me, you haven’t spoken to my detractors.
That’s what I want you to do.
If you think you know me, I want you to talk to my detractors first, and then talk to me.
