Blog co-Author: Windy
Over the past two years, well not exactly two years because I stopped blogging sometime in September 2009 and returned here with a Comment on February 22nd., at Lainy’s Post.
One thing led to another and that applied to publishing articles here at Lainy’s invitation. I have returned only to find in a larger circumstance, the same old attitudes and blogging mindset.
What do I refer to?
These are observations made from published articles as well as from Comments submitted at various Blogs:
1. The myopic bloggers who can’t see anything further than within a 6 inch perimeter around themselves. Regrettably these bloggers fail to recognize that there are no boundaries that separate individuals in the blogging community.
2. The shameful tactless bloggers who manifest their bickering and obtuse references when all it takes is to call a spade, a spade. Brevity is the soul of wit.
3. The every way but win bloggers who find that it is beyond them to accept that Providence bestowed on them only one zillionth of intellectual capability.
4. The pestilence bloggers who can’t think of anything else better to do than spend their time spamming in every way conceivable.
5. The I, Me and My egotist bloggers who inscrutably find more happiness by engorging on pride much to their own ruin.
6. The diplomat bloggers who are neither here nor there in any given circumstance. They are in a state of self denial about the fact that popularity is fickle.
7. The hypocrite bloggers who thrive on back stabbing. We’ve actually lost good bloggers who stopped blogging because they were victims of this kind of bloggers.
8. The pharisaic bloggers who denounce what other bloggers do when the former has nothing better to offer by suggestion.
9. The all amiable YES bloggers who sweetly agree to whatever is placed before them.
10. The omniscience bloggers who pick on just about anything, even when there is a typo error or assail any effort to theorize.
The above list is not all that I have observed since I returned to blog as a Blog Co-Author at Lainy’s Musings.
There is a marked deterioration in the fare that bloggers commit themselves. There is a significant reduction in the number of what one would assay as a blogger who is worth his publications.
Fortunately, for the old fashioned SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) bloggers who once were the target of blog critics, their material still continues with predictable consistency when compared to Bloggers number 1 to 10 above. Blogverbially then, it’s so true that “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”. More power to our SAHMs!
The blogging sparkle has been subdued considerably with the lack luster management of Social Networks (MyBlogLog, Entrecard, BlogCatalog and a few others that fizzled out).
What is the rave today at Blogosphere?
Yes, at this moment, I can’t point to any that ‘s worth mentioning.
Every blogger is too involved with himself and there is a dearth of creativity, imagination and passion; qualities that are prerequisites and only found in a very small fraction in the blogging community.
You dispute that?
Well, take a look at what is flaunted at Twitter for 10 minutes. You’d say that’s a poor sampling. Review it randomly.
Go to Facebook and make your own assay where members have become bored and idle, they’d rather play games there than interact. We’re talking about adults who are receding to infantalism.
Enough said..so what is inherent with quality blogging?
Whatever be the Blog’s theme, be it a gallery of photos, the culinary arts, travel, folklore, education, literature, child care, politics, social issues, medicines and remedies, personal “diary”, the arts and crafts, the entertainment industry, economics, money management, home care and design, hobbies, sports, health care, faith, music, story telling, comedy relief, fiction, electronics and gadgetry, photography, you name it, even PAID POST too…
The value-added factor to the essence of blogging and being a Blogger is to impart, to exchange, to share and elicit discussions and opinions with those who have a shared interest.
