Start by creating a WordPress blog (see instructions). The purpose of this blog will not be to get readers. It will be to store your really long arguments so you can link to them from other blogs. This is why I started my blog. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it just has to be functional. Name it whatever you like (e.g. eccentric-theology.wordpress.com).
Having setup your blog, create a post on your favorite esoteric, eccentric theology topic. Publish the post and view it. Copy the link from your browser. You’ll need it later.
Next pick the
victim blog that you wish to comment on. Many bloggers use moderation for the first post, so write an insightful comment and try not to be controversial. Your goal is to get out of moderation and have people not hate you immediately:
It didn’t tolerate my wife demanding that I do chores. Men who put up with that are so beta. I guess they have no choice, since it takes self-confidence to stand up to that. I’m so alpha it hurts.
If it isn’t explicitly stated in a comment policy, you’ll want to ask about the link policy:
“Do you have evidence to back up that claim?”
Yeah, I do on my website. Is it okay to post links on this blog?
As soon as you get approval, you are good to go:
“Unless the Catholic church has blessed your marriage, you are fornicating. Full stop.”
I don’t agree with that. I think marriage starts when you have sex and no church is required.
You create links in your comments by doing this:
<a href="https://derekramsey.com/2018/02/01/what-constitutes-biblical-marriage/">marriage starts when you have sex</a>
Your goal is to avoid really long comments or having to repeat yourself. Let’s say a month later you want to make the same kind of comment on another post. Just refer back to what you said previously:
“There is really nothing wrong with fornicating. It screws the feminists. Literally.”
As I said on a comment on the post – True Marriage™ – last month, marriage starts when you have sex. So, fornication is not cool.
This assumes they know what you are talking about. If not, wait for them to ask questions. This allows the conversation to die if they are not interested in pursuing it. You really shouldn’t try to force the issue if no one wants to talk about it. So…
“As I said on a comment on the post – True Marriage™ – last month, marriage starts when you have sex.”
I’m not very bright and don’t know how to search. Can you remind me?
….and you reply…
@Fighter <blockquote>"Can you remind me?"</blockquote> Of course. <a href="https://derekramsey.com/2018/02/01/what-constitutes-biblical-marriage/">Here it is</a>. As you can see, fornication is an abomination in God's eyes.
In this example I show the raw code you actually type into the comment box.
You are the guest at their blog. You may be God’s messenger, but you still need to be civil and respectful. Treat them like you’d treat visiting someone in their house in meat-space. Keep long comments to a minimum, moving them to your blog instead and linking to them. Try not to repeat yourself. Trust the strength of your arguments and let your opponent have the last word.
Even if they ignore you, your link sits there always potentially driving traffic to your site. One day someone may read it and be moved by your eccentric prose. They may even comment on it or blog about it.
Just be careful not to link-spam. If you link to something, make it on topic and directly applicable. Don’t derail the discussion with your pet topic. Make sure it applies to the discussion.
This is a work of fiction. A resemblance to real people may be intentional.
Boxer is an incredibly lenient host. It makes me lazy. I don’t actually follow most of the advice here, but he probably wishes I would do so more often. He practically had to force me to become a contributing author on this blog. You don’t really want to do that on a blog with a less tolerant host.
