Notable Quote: the meme-maker's lament

I thought if they liked one, they might like a series of them - they would recognize the name and come back. ... But they don't do that. This is a common meme-maker's lament: viral projects are spread through decontextualized blog links and e-mail forwards, and so viewers tend to pay no attention whatsoever to the domains that actually host the material - they never learn anything about the creators who entertain them. In the Internet circus, a seemingly infinite cast of clowns, daredevils, and freaks each step into spotlight, enthrall the crowd for thirty seconds or so, and then exit back into the dark with barely a bow.

~ Bill Wasik, And Then There's This

Comment by Jan: I found this quote, dear readers, when - after a week of hitting the stratosphere, so to speak - my blog traffic & ad revenue sank like a stone. Sigh. Back to the drawing board, to try for another 30 seconds of fame. It's feels like being a hamster on a treadmill, doesn't it?

Thanks for all your comments! I wasn't sure at first if anyone would "get" the message here, but it looks like a nerve has been hit :) At least now we know, we're not alone in feeling invisible on the 'Net!
