This is about an online chat between two guys. One who wants to learn how to blog and the other who blogs. For the sake of making it easy, I shall name the first guy as “Wannabe” and the other guy as “Blogger”.
Wannabe: Hi! My friend said that I will learn a good deal about Blogs by talking to you.
Wannabe: What’s LOL?
Blogger: Sorry, it’s L.O.L really.
Wannabe: Ok. (pretends that he knows LOL with periods) So can you advise me how should I start my blog?
Blogger: Hmmm, I think you should begin with Blogger
Wannabe: Yes, that’s what I want to be, a Blogger. Now how do I do that?
Blogger: Like I just told you, you begin with Blogger.
Wannabe: Yes, I know I have to begin as a Blogger but how?
Blogger: go to www.blogger.com.
Wannabe: What do I do when I go to this site?
Blogger: You create an Account so that you login every time you need to blog.
Blogger: Yes, and you will need an email account too for registering yourself.
Wannabe: Gosh! there’s so many things that I have to do. Wait let me write that down.
Blogger: Take your time.
Wannabe: After I have my account, what next?
Blogger: You become one of millions in Blogosphere.
Wannabe: Where’s that located?
Blogger: It’s not a geographical location. It’s a term used to describe a place on the internet for bloggers.
Wannabe: Do they have a President of Blogosphere? You know like nations have Governments.
Blogger: No, Blogosphere does not have any governing body.
Wannabe: That sounds cool. What do I do next?
Wannabe: Whoaaa! Slow down please. What is all that?
Blogger: That my good friend, is blogging.
Wannabe: Sounds so greek to me.
Blogger: Well, if you want to be a Blog geek, all that becomes necessary.
Wannabe: You mentioned social networks. What is that?
Blogger: Oh there are several out there.
Blogger: Like there is EC and also Adgitize,
Wannabe: I have to join the European Community?
Blogger: No, that’s EntreCard
Wannabe: Oh! and does Adgitze mean I have to make trouble?
Blogger: Look, I can’t possibly explain everything in detail. Of course you’re not supposed to blog and create trouble.
Wannabe: So I still don’t understand what is Social Networking.
Blogger: Ok, let me try this. Have you heard about Facebook and Twitter?
Wannabe: Sorry, I haven’t. Facebook? Is that a book with a face on it? Do I have to get one to be a Blogger?
Blogger: Oh my. You’re so…. I can already tell what you’re going to say about Twitter in a second.
Wannabe: Yeah, sounds like place for lunatics. You know an asylum where there are lots of twits.
Wannabe: (imitates) LOL
Blogger: You’re learning fast.
Wannabe: (reads his notes) You also mentioned about backlinks? What is that?
Blogger: That is when another Blogger links you from behind.
Wannabe: WHAT? What do you mean? Hey! I won’t allow that. I am straight.
Wannabe: And what is that?
Blogger: Hold on chap. Brb.
Wannabe: (while waiting) these Bloggers are so funny. He just left and said brb. Now what on earth is that?
Blogger: am back now
Wannabe: thank you for rejoining me.
Wannabe: No my name is Wannabe. You could call me wb
Blogger: Yes I know that.
Wannabe: But you said yw. That isn’t me.
Blogger: Gosh, you ask too many questions.
Wannabe: Oh! I am sorry if I am troubling you. Now what was that LOLROTFWMLDITA?
Blogger: That’s short for Laughing Out Loud Rolling On The Floor With My Legs Dangling In The Air!
Wannabe: I must say that to blog needs a lot of body movement too.
Blogger: It’s up to you if you think you can handle it.
Wannabe: Yes, indeed. Like you mentioned I have to do drops every time I blog. Blogging must be good for physical health.
Blogger: I never heard that being said before.
Wannabe: There is so much to learn. Do I have to be a linguist too?
Blogger: No, I see you can write in English. That will be sufficient.
Blogger: Let me say, It’s BLOGORISH.
Wannabe: Another language to learn?
Blogger: Hey, I have to go now. Talk to you when you’re OL. (logs out)
Wannabe: What is OL? I am not old. I have just finished High School.
Wannabe: Hello! Blogger are you still here?
