Blogging on the Bloggers of Blogdom

As with all things new, we stumble into something without much preparation & along the way discover facets never imagined, experiences we did not know would greet us…both positive & negative.

So welcome to the blogging world which is no different.  You started blogging because you thought you had something of value to contribute…a passion, a hobby or whatever.

And then you gradually get to experience the blogosphere effect.

And you start reeling under it.

In the process you might just about forget why you started blogging in the first place.

You thought blogging was a creative channel or a  break from the regular everyday world huh? But guess what…beneath the surface of all things wise & virtual, the psychology at work is still the same…appreciation, ego,  sensitivity (or the lack thereof), building bridges & a bit of …taking offence  

 

These are the unwritten laws or code of conduct in Blogdom. Call it what you will but  the fact of the matter is –

~ To each their  own – what it means here though is to each blogger, their  OWN blog is of supreme importance 

~ Playground behaviour is displayed at its best on this playing field

These are the expectations, adhere or perish –

—> I visited your blog, now you must visit my blog.

—> If you don’t come to my blog,  I won’t come to your blog.

—> I clicked  ‘like’ on your posts, you should click  ‘like’ on my posts.

—> I commented on your posts, you better reply to my comments. And when done, you better comment on my posts.

 —>I followed your blog. You should follow mine. 

 Or else what? 

—> I’ll stop liking your posts.

—> I’ll stop reading your posts.

—> I’ll stop following your blog.

 

“Be cast into outer darkness…

There shall be weeping & gnashing of teeth.” ~ Jesus

Sigh. 

Life was easier without blogging 🙂
