I was horrified to learn that in the last few days Maine-ly Painting was given a blog credit rating downgrade by S&P (Slap-dash and Putrid) from an F minus to an F minus-minus. Needless to say, I'm outraged! Surely the fine folks who have the hugely important task of blog rating have overlooked the fact that I spend moments of preparation on Maine-ly Painting, and that my thoughts on painting are at least ankle deep. In spots. No, they have given me the same rating as other minimal use blogs such as Fun With Cat Fur! and Charmin Lovers For Life! And I know for darn sure my blog is a lot better than Alone On The Couch! Yet that one was given an F-plus. Oh, the humanity...
Allow me to quote the S+P review that they think justifies their heinous action:
The Web-log Maine-ly Painting as written by a Keven
Ouch! But don't they understand that my blog, which started with 23 readers has now exploded world-wide to almost two dozen? And of course, thanks to the ether that is the internet, my words are floating out there, waiting to come back and enlighten, educate and haunt-- forever? I guess not. As they continued:
At least they had something almost pleasant to say in summing up:
At the very least, Mr.
Thank you. Of course, I'm not going to take this lying down. My blog is worthy of an F no matter what some pretentious, self important rating agency thinks. So fear not, gentle reader, I will continue to write Maine-ly Painting as long as I have something deep and important to say about art, and the life of those who practice it. And I know you'll be behind me every step of the way.
So long as it's not in a wind tunnel...
