This will be the last post. I've now written over 3,000 updates from the gossip rags and I've come to an unmistakable conclusion.
I am not their target audience and I never will be.
This wasn't the worst hobby I ever tried, but I've grown tired of it and you can get what I put on the Internet through other sources who really are interested in this silly stuff.
What have I learned in two years.
These magazines lie a lot. I knew that already, but it's really obvious when you read it week after week and keep track of verifiable stuff, most notably people being born and people dying.
These magazines are waaaay too interested in reality TV. They like this stuff and I hated it even when I had a TV. I thought there might be a backlash against the Kardashians after the sham marriage, but no such luck. It's the old adage "There is no such thing as bad publicity." And looking at the headlines from this week that I won't be posting, Teen Mom must be coming back on soon, judging by a slew of stories in several magazines about Leah.
I'm a middle aged heterosexual male, which makes me about the last person they expect to read this stuff. I might add that I'm college educated and from the West Coast. There are a couple of gossip rags that tend to skew older and more Southern than I am and the others skew younger and with a more feminine perpsective.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented, especially Karen Zipdrive. I'll leave the blog up as a reference but I won't be adding any more stories.
I no longer keep tab of the tabs. If you are interested, you'll have to do the legwork yourself.
