I had a short MSN last night with a fellow blogger who often touched on politics. One thing that we agreed on is the herd mentality found in most people.
The media – Letter to the Editors
Do you notice how many people love to write to The Editor and quote “I agree with blabla columnist’s thoughts…..(then express their own which is a copycat of what was written).
Have you seen how many bloggers tend to touch on the same issue and quote and re-quote the more prominent bloggers cum politikus cum self-declared established blogger (konon) views and add a few pinch of salt and pepper of their own and then, damn bangga like they know politics very well?
The copycats around us
Well, there are KFG fried chicken stall, MatDollah fast food and etc.
The copypasters and mob blog
Tell me how many ‘check this video out’ blogs there are now? Tell me how many “oh this is so yummy food blog’ now? Tell you what. If you are interested to start a blog, tell me what you are expert in and I gerenti you I can find a niche topic which earns you lots of Google Adsense.
Can’t people just be more creative and have opinions of their own? Well, even if they have none and keep quiet, no one is going to say they are dumb. But people are going to laugh behind their backs when they show their own stupidity by re-quoting someone’s else opinions and said something like, “Exactly my sentiments…..I was going to say this before Mr. So&so beats me to it……I was having the exact views like Dato’ So&So”.
Ellloooooo……please lah, stand on your own side of the fence and stop apeing people. Anyway, do you find some bloggers who blog the same topic rather dry and boring? I wish they would write something like they are constipated or found a cockcroach in their bathroom to jazz up their blogs. Hey, Mr. & Ms. Politicians and Mr. & Ms. Politikus-wannabe, how about making yourself more human so that we can connect and relate to what you are writing? After all, you don’t need more parrots on your blogs or those people who are wise beyond words whom you are not likely to change their minds. You need voters, grassroots like my readers and I to change the scene. Make yourself human so that we can understand your cause. How about engaging me to be your ghost writer? Rocket, Dacing, any brand oso can. I go where the wind blows.
Sidenote : At the Asian X-Games? I took a bunch of photos, be thick-skinned, posted the link of my photo album in one skateboarding forum and fuwah, even Pa’din Musa and the announcer Boy Ipoh also came by and dropped their comments. That is call thick-skin or innovative, whichever way you want to see. Then, I also thick-skin and called out Michael Cheang (kehkehkeh) who wrote the article in The Star today. So, dun anyone dare to call me C9 or silai or risk getting your balls cut off. I don’t move in herds, ok? Get it in your thick skull now.
