I blog, it’s fun for me. I may occasionally write about serious things but usually it’s some sort of rant that occurred to me at the time to be important enough to type something out and share.
I also read other blogs, a lot, on my iPhone and on the laptop and there are many bloggers who like me are writers and novelists. There are many that I really respect and read their blogs as often as I can.
Lately though I see many blogs about the “rules” of blogging or the “etiquette” of blogging. Since when does blogging have to be something, so serious that supposed “rules” need to be applied to them. I thought the whole point of blogging was so people could share and learn about things that were not in the major media. And also to share thoughts and ideas with others around the word or your country. To be able to put honest words and thoughts down about random subjects without conforming to certain rules… are we little journalists and conformists or something?.
I do not feel the need to pander to some made up social consciousness in my blogs, one of unity and whatever the hell else. Who comes up with these rules for blogs? Some prude sitting his their room alone angry because something they wrote wasn’t published by some snotty magazine or paper? And why do they feel the need to or even think they have the right to put rules on the thoughts and ideas of others and how they are expressed.
My blogs are more often than not how I would talk in real life. Isn’t part of the idea of blogging to be REAL and to HONEST to express yourself?. However, to some you have to follow certain rules and expectations…god forbid you swear in blog…it might be (Gasp) unprofessional, which again defeats the purpose of blogging to a degree I think, since I don’t think most bloggers do it professionally.
You want to have your stupid rules and limitations on what you can and can’t blog about, what’s appropriate in your little world, say something how you want to say it and bitch about concepts of correct and incorrect grammar go right fucking ahead and be a whiney douchbag. Ya know while you’re at I got some shit that needs proofread and edited since you have nothing better to do than troll the blogosphere nagging bloggers about bad grammar and punctuation . Be uptight and safe and have your weird little rules. But I will write about what I want and how I want, and will put exclamation marks wherever the hell I WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!;-/ I pride myself for better or worse on saying what i think in my blogs…if you don’t like it….well I just don’t care. Grow a pair and break the rules you puss!!
Stop trying to kill the blogging world with your over rated intelligence.
