Lately, I’ve received several Google alerts to postings on jankk.com, a blog where the header reads:
Migraine Help, Migraine Headaches
Having Migraine Headaches? You need to treat it right.
The form of this blog is that the administrator posts a question as a blog entry, and readers post answers. Seems rather a strange format, but it could work.
One post / question that particulary caught my attention was, “What Are Basilar Migraines and Hemiplegic Migraines.” When I first saw this, there were a couple of answers that seemed that they might be good, but the links in them didn’t work. When I looked again, a great Migraine writer and advocate has posted very informative links on both basilar-type and hemiplegic Migraines. It was looking as if the blog could be pretty valuable, very recommendable.
However, when I returned to see if the first links had been fixed, the later posts with working links had been deleted.
So, what’s the deal with this blog? Why does this person keep doing it? I don’t really know, but there are two possibilities I can think of:
- He or she is hoping that others will post detailed answers without links, thus adding to the value of the blog.
- He or she just hopes people will click on the Google ads so he or she can make $$ from our misery.
Whatever the reason, it really stinks that the administrator of this blog is so small-minded, so self-aggrandizing, so egocentric that he or she is threatened when others post valuable links in response to the questions posed.
If you’re looking for good Migraine blogs, don’t waste your time on Jankk’s. It’s sad… It’s pathetic… It sucks.
