Do you ever check in on your blog stats? And you see that someone spent an extended period of time reading your blog?
And so you say to yourself, "Self, that is so rewarding. I'm gratified that someone found something so worthwhile on my blog. That's why I do this. To be helpful."
And then you glance at their search words and discover how they ended up at your blog? And you realize their search words were "Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan" or "What is the plot of Escape from Warsaw?"
And you know that your ever-so-helpful words probably just ended up in some sixth grader's book report?
And you think, "I really hope you get caught," or, "Did you take out the part about Anne-with-an-e and Betsy after you cut and pasted? Because I hope you didn't."
Not that I don't want to be helpful. I just want them to get caught before they enter a full-blown life of crime. I'm talkin' about you and your ilk, Anonymous.
Thus ends today's cautionary tale.
