Spam and Compliments for Spectacles Blog

The World of Spectacles & Glasses Never Rests…

Well while I’ve been very lazy and not writing much on Spectacles Blog recently (some fatique, some disillusionment and some Xmas break), I come back to it to find the usual thousands of spam comments haven’t taken a rest. Most of these are caught by the spam filter and I don’t even look at them anymore, but some get through the filter and beg a reading. Most of these are spam too.

The first point has to be that I should be flattered that people (machines, really) find the site and try to get a free link. Some though beg a further interest as they may be a real person trying to punt a new venture or a new product and that’s fair enough.

One of these was a new spectacles & glasses outlet – an online store and I’ve written to them asking for some specs to review and that way I can genuinely give them a review and write a piece and show the specs. We’ll see if they reply… (Are you out there??)

And I also felt obliged to comment on their website which was a bit of a curate’s egg!

Another one was from someone claiming to admire the design of this site. I’ve sent them a private email to test if they’re real. Of course if they are they may still try to sell me something. Clever those people (and machines) out there…

And another was from a supplier of opticians software. Whatever next..?

But None of this is About Spectacles…

Like Specs for Grown Ups...

Like Specs for Grown Ups…

Sorry this is a big more blog than spectacles… But I can spout off I want. It’s my party…

… from See Saw Seen Eyewear. Buy them online for your sons & daughters

Anyhow, here are some specs from the other pushers and promoters. Let’s see how many I have to delete before I get something I want to mention… (About 20 emails and 10 Google Alerts…) And finally I found something that was mildly interesting (via the Staten Island press!).

These are specs for kids in San Francisco – or anywhere in the USA in fact as you can order online. They come from See. Saw. Seen Eyewear, priced from $58 including (plastic) lenses (and $98 with polycarn lenses).

The original story made out that they made hundreds of whizzy whacky specs to make kids feel great in them and the majority are basically just like grown ups glasses – if the grown up chooses to wear something a little less traditional. The pair here on the left are nearly the wildest and those on the right a good example of kids’ glasses for the young grown up.

And finally, I was  reminded of the other spectacles blog…

… possibly more hardworking over the years than I and in many way a better blog for that and for the many images and good sources of the new and interesting, namely eye-wear-glasses. But looking at his post count, it looks like he’s getting fatique too. What is it Rob?
