Bumble has had a love hate affair with reddit for over a year. He was given a book last Christmas that suggested techniques for increasing traffic on his blog. One technique was to post content to various places like StumbleUpon and Reddit. StumbleUpon hasn’t generated much love, but at least the users of the site aren’t idiots. Most seem to be casual surfers of the interwebs just looking for a good laugh and something original.
Reddit is another story. Every now and then Bumble has caught lightening in a bottle and written something that does well there. Usually, it makes Bumble feel dirty when that happens. Why? Because 90% of redditors are judgy-pants dbags. If you ever want to find out just what happened to the kid that used to do the “morning announcements” at your high school simply sign up for reddit. Failed writers, humorists, and cowboy coders unite! Shape of a disenchanted fat virgin! Form of an overbearing moderator!
You’ve probably never heard of reddit because quite frankly, you are cool. If you weren’t cool you wouldn’t be here. You would be on reddit overcompensating for your rather small penis by blocking innocent cats from submitting funny content. Listen douche… Just because you are moderating a sub-reddit with 50,000 followers that does not make you Mark Zuckerberg. It makes you the kid that still trots out his nWo T-shirt from the late 90′s and thinks he is badass. In other words, we are all laughing at you between your shifts at Circuit City. In short, get bent.
Update: Bumble has started his OWN sub-reddit for non-judgy-pants people, humorists, cats, and bloggers to freely share their original content. So far it has one follower, namely Bumble. Kinda sad huh? Not really. As long as you have a place to post, the content still shows up in reddit’s search. Now, Bumble has never actually MET someone who used reddit in person. Nonetheless, if you have original content and want to share sign up and use our sub-reddit.
