It must be really boring when you realise you’re always neutral and tolerant about a lot of things in life. I mean, when you come to think of it, it would make for a pretty boring blog. Take a lot of my regular blog mates for instance…say Minishorts and Suanie, you got to admit…when they have a…loud opnion about something…people take note.
Sure it’s the fact that they are (very very) pretty women with nice assets. Sure it’s way they play their words around that draws people’s attention. I mean, when you put that beside a guy like me who’s only urge to rant comes when he gets really depressed, there is no competition there. It comes to the simple truth of things really about guy’s blogs.
Unless you’re really really good with your words, putting your emotion down in your post is going to look real tired real fast.
I suppose that this is a reality none of us cannot escape from. Guy’s who blog have to have a reputation for writing factual stuff. Things that detail the more…well useful things about the world around us. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean women have to write rants and sob stories all the time, that would be really sexist of me and I don’t want to be burnt on a stake for that. But face it, when it comes to blogging, there is a certain level of sex based expectation when you read a person’s blog. If you happen to screw those expectations entirely…you’re going to end up like me at one point.
So what’s the point of all this? Well, it’s coming to a point where I find it harder and harder to rant and rave in my own blog because of the dire effects that come from it. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s that everytime I want to, I find it hard to play around with my words to make it sound a little more like the blogger I’m supposed to be.
I suppose a lot of bloggers can go. “Screw the rules!! Your blog is your own!! Write what you want!!” Yeah…my blog is my own, but that’s like saying “I can do whatever I want!!” in real life and ignoring the fact that there are laws against some things. Whether some of us would like to admit it or not, blogging is a community thing. The same rules that affect us in real life affect us here in the blogosphere…otherwise there won’t be such things as A-list blogs or the Elite-Veteran-Newbie blogger hierarchy. So if you’re going to write like a emotional laden guy…you better be prepared to face the consequences of it.
Well I guess this still means that I still have some ways to go before I can play with my words enough for my point to come out without me sounding like a girl. A tricky disposition, but not entirely impossible. I just have to remind the readers every once in a while what I look like.
Definitely no mistakes there.
