You write an article. You spend how ever long making sure that the spelling and grammar are perfect, (or as perfect as you can get them). You've added photos or images, searching the Net for the right one. You've submitted it, it is published. Now, the real work begins.
Now you have to start the Stumble/Digg thing. You've got to submit it to as many sites as you can, get it mentioned on message boards, and the like. You're spending more time trying to get it out there than you do writing it. And very often, after you've gotten that item on every Network you can, you wait. And wait, because it's drowned in all the other items everyone and their dog is trying to Network.
Now, you could write the Best Article on a Topic ever. But, alas, you've posted it on a 'content farm'. This means that Google will ignore it. You hunt around for a site which is not labeled a Content Farm but have to rework the item so you won't be accused of Article Spinning.
Eventually, you get tired. Just tired. And you just can't be bothered any more.
You might promise yourself to go to Redgage one quiet day and post all your articles, but that day never comes, because you've reached such a level of fatigue that you consider writing online the same as writing in your diary.
You just can't be bothered with Trolls on Reddit, and the little regulations of the other promotion sites which make you into a 'self spammer' That's not nice. You never thought of yourself as a self-Spammer. But as far as the Networkds are concerned, that's who you are.
I hate Networking.
