A disadvantage of being Spock

Last Update: March 03, 2019

The disadvantage of a dispassionate and coldly logical heart is borne out here in Wealthy Affiliate. Many years ago a young, brokenhearted Tayo decided that emotions were fundamentally useless. Already enamoured of Star Trek (the original series) I decided to model myself on Mr Spock. I may have over succeeded in this quest but for the most part, I see it as being a good thing. However, here on Wealthy Affiliate, I find that the comments which attract the greatest number of likes are those which best draw empathy from readers.

As I do not know how to emulate that kind of writing, I will always be at a disadvantage. This is neither a cry for help nor a weeping–upon–stony cold floors (which as I've said already, is not the sort of thing I do anyway). It is merely an observation and a prediction that people like me are unlikely to be able to rank very highly. So, if I fail to reach the upper echelons of WA, it's all your fault, not mine. 😉

Thank goodness that I know well how to keep a stiff upper lip.

Live long and prosper. 😊

You have only just arrived here and you are already moving quickly up the ranks. I predict that you will be in the top 200 in not time at all.

Spock Is a good choose of corrector I don't see it as being at a disadvantage at all, after all he is always right (O:

That said it is good to have and makes for a good teacher because you will always give your honest option.

Hello, Linda.

The increase in ranking is appreciated, but accidental in that I am not pursuing it. There's so much going on and I'm trying my hardest to get content into my website, which is a hard slog—far harder than I had thought it would be.

Anyway, thank you for your kind comments, and here's to both our success. 😊👍

Have a lovely day.

Regards,

Tayo

When I came over here and commented on this post I forgot to follow. Just to let you know I am know following.

I know what you mean because I do the same. My interest is not in the ranking it just happens and not a fluke at all. I go up and down on my ranking depending on the time I have to connect with others.

I have been very busy of late and haven't had much time to interact. I find it very interesting because I run into very interesting people that inspire me to make comments.

I just ran into one of your comments on another post and this inspired me to return to your profile and I seen that I hadn't followed you. So I came back to your post I commented on.

So Spock you did send a clear message.(O:

Hi Linda.

Somehow, your message got lost—either in the cybersphere, or the madhouse of my scatterbrained approach to work at the moment. I am doing my best to adhere to strict discipline, but by golly, it's hard. 😳

Anyway, we've connected by PM now, so there's that.

Cheers,

Tayo

It's good to be someone who is true to themselves. I look forward to your comments. They have value and make me smile.

I don't want to offend you in any way but I agree with Twack you have to be honest with yourself if you can't do that then you can do that with anyone else. You have to make the choice on how you want to be.

No one can tell you how to be. As long as you can wake up and go to sleep with a clear conscience you are in great shape. When you can do that then you are being true to yourself and honest with yourself.

I hope that you take this in the way that I had intended it and that is not to offend you in any way but to show you how things are in life or business

There absolutely isn't anything offensive in your kind and thoughtful message in the slightest.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and for giving such wise counsel.

Soothsayer thou!

Naught for ye slave but ye misery of his ill-starred lot.

See here, straight an' true; twenty blows shalt be apportioned to him who does, an' twenty blows shalt be ye grace to him who does not.

Ergo, advise him to bare his back to ye unsubtle lashes of fate.
For reply he cans't offer ye sour grin, else ye hot tears, but both shalt yield of fruit—none.
