I type 100WPM and like to rant, so feel free to read through any of my postings and gloat over typos. They should arise often, unlike this sites web-traffic.
“a person or organization that is immature, inexperienced, or underdeveloped.”
“Descending into oblivion”, is an empirically researched and proven claim, despite a bit of hyperbole (per Amazon’s alexa web traffic):
TheRinger traffic is down nearly -2900 positions globally since July.
TheRinger bounceback is 55%, up 20% on the month.
TheRinger gets 2.53 page views per visitor, down -15% on the month.
TheRinger gets 3:42 in average time per visitor, down -10% on the month.
All despite increased SEO payments via Google, and already a poor showing in December.
For a site with increasing budget, contributors consisting of know-nothing and rejected huddled masses from Buzzfeed (the organization that brought us #pissgate), that was launched less than 2 years ago? This is what you can call: Bad.
Why do I come here? I’ve answered this exact question before, but I will gladly again. I am part of the Page 2 old guard. Bill Simmons and Hunter S Thompson single-handedly inspired me to take an interest in journalism, the ability to artfully construct a position of irreverance in terms of Sports, Politics, and popular culture thereof — I have followed and will continue to follow Simmons career and writings closely. But I do agree, this current state of trying to replicate the worst aspects of Buzzfeed, with untalented and know-nothing millennial bloggers who themselves were fired from Gawker/Buzzfeed/Etc., is an unfortunate and distant departure from what made Simmons great.
I stop in on this site every few weeks to give my opinions. Feel free to ignore or argue them, as you deem fit.
Be well my friend.
