Where are all the MetBloggers?

Look at the list to the left. Those people are the Portland Metrobloggers.

Link at this post, the ones above it (assuming there will be) and the ones below. You’ll see me (a new addition), TK, Mikey, Betsy, and now the illustrious John Hays. Also, Benkay, Josh B, and BananaLee have made recent appearances. But where are Sasquatch, Russ, Eric, and Jeff?

I think it can be discouraging to blog here, because you have no idea who (if anyone) is reading you. At least on your own blog, you can set up a counter, see where people are checking you out from, etc. Here, it’s like yelling into the forest. You’re not sure if anyone hears you, or, for that matter, if anyone cares what you’re saying.

Anyway, if you see a Portland MetBlogger who writes something you like, let them know. Or hop over to their blog (I’m guessing most, like me, can tell when they are being visited by someone who’s read them here). The MetBlog is a neat idea. Many voices, many perspectives, many topics, but one common theme — the town (or, in John Hays’ case, the urban/suburban metroplex) we call home. Let people know you care.

    We’re here. We’re just confused by all the rain.

    Hi, I am Eric. This is my first post as a metroblogger and it is a comment. First off I am highly offended that just because I haven’t posted a single thing you think I’m not “part of the team.” It’s posts like this that divide us into little cliques like “posters” and “non-posters”, and a house divided against itself cannot stand man. Some people like to jabber on and on posting a lot of words and things of this nature, and others show their support in more subtle ways. Me, I am the strong silent type. Let me tell you something though about some others on in this tight knit community. There is a rat in the house, and his name is JEFF! He hasn’t posted a single thing, and I know for a fact that he isn’t giving the kind of moral and psychic support to the team like some of us, like me. Instead he goes around telling people he’s a metroblogger like others of us that have invested a lot of time and effort into this site, just so he can impress girls. I think we deserve better. I think Jeff should be banished from the team and I would appreciate your support in this. If you feel like I feel, I hope you’ll comment and show your support. Down with Jeff!

    Holy hell, everyone posted today. Except you.

    I appreciate the strong, silent type though. Your blogs are always the best read.

    And down with Jeff. Bastard.

    Eric, I love you. Don’t ever change.

    Hey, Eric. Hey, Jeff.

    You want to hang with the cool kids? Better drop me an email so I know to keep the barn door open for you boys.

    See, posting’s the name of the game around this joint…and it’s how you’re going to impress the women.

    Trust me on this…

    Down with the tyrany of Betsy!!! My thoughts can best be expressed through the words of others:

    “The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.”

    Robert Hutchins? I think I went to school with that guy. He was a jerk.

    Sorry. It’s too late. If Eric says you suck, well…
