That’s not conceited thinking, that’s marketing. Maybe you don’t like being a part of it, but in whatever way, you decided that I was important enough to stop by not once, but twice (or maybe once if this ends up in the top of the Google or something).
What am I trying to say? All attention is good attention to me. You want to hate my politics or way of thinking? Great, go right ahead. You want to love me? Thanks, I love you too. But love me or hate me, your secondary roles becomes making you a view number to my blog and that matters more to me than your opinion.
