Worst. Blog. Ever.

Tyler Cowen has one in mind, but he’s not saying which one:

I read many blogs but there is only one — of the two or three hundred I have sampled — which I find truly obnoxious. I find the content obnoxious and I find the style obnoxious and I find the blogger obnoxious. By the way, I don’t think it is a blog which has ever said anything negative about me, at least not that I’m aware of. And it’s not a blog on the blogroll or a blog I have, as far as I can remember, linked to.

I never read it regularly in the first place, but I don’t think I can stand to read this blog any more ever again. Even so, I try to spin theories of how one blog and one blog only can have achieved such a special place in my mind. It’s not a blog that covers special or unique topics, relative to the other blogs I read and link to. Is the world not a continuum?

I don’t think I’ve ever said anything critical about Mr Cowen, and he has certainly never linked to me.

    I could easily say all of those things about my own blog.

    Especially this month.

    Being nearly-universally ignored has its benefits.
