Henry, you took the words right out of my mouth. Your platitude-aphorism-fluff engine is sure to create the views necessary to open a portal into an Internet of complete nothingness swirling with happy advice no one can take because it doesn’t apply to anything meaningful.

This is one of the things that pisses me off about Linked In’s writing areas as well. The most well read articles are the ones which have absolutely NO REAL CONTENT at all. Just an array of “say something vague” which could apply to anyone but no one in particular.

These articles rack of tens of thousands of views where articles where an author actually put some effort either creatively or though diligent research and people can’t be bothered with making the effort to read something with some actual substance.

Which, of course, feeds the machine negatively, where more people emulate the worthless posts because they get reads, so the Internet gets fluffier and more useless as writers who work hard get frustrated and give up.

Not going to stand for that. Let me get back to writing something worth reading. Thanks for the motivation.
