Since I am done skimming through the papers and has thrown it under my bed because if I flipped through further, I am going to blog, ‘IT IS NOT THE FLAG BURNING, LAH. It is WHY, WHY, WHY they feel that way. Find out the whys. You are not helping at all but instead make the situation worse. You are our leader, remember? It is not politics, it is poverty, negligence, double-standard, anger…..’
But I am not going to go near politics. The wall is too high for anyone to pass me a char siew pau.
So, let’s talk about blogging and all it unwritten rules.
After blogging for three years, I realised that comments are no longer important. Not comments but the numbers.
Then again, the shrewd me do notice when people intentionally must die die push their opinions when something ruffled their feathers and yet, never bother to drop a word when the blogger may need some kind of support. (noting down who didn’t wish me on my birthday)
Another group will be those who will appear after a blue moon and tell you, Hey! I tag you (because you got PR 5/10) and hope you take it (because I gained a link and it helps my PR).
How about those who suddenly stopped coming by because they take sides. They aren’t happy with what you did to their friend and boycott you? Pigi blah, tak suka balik lah!
Of course, there are the regulars that will comment whether your post is just a paid post or something really profound. They always find the right things to say. These are the truest, bestest blog buddies. I love you all! Muacks, muacks, muacks.
Therefore, sometimes, all the above made me feel too lazy to comment so much. Just like a relationship, once you get too many disappointments and wrong judgement, you decide to just stay on the sideline.
As for replying to comments, these are the reasons why I didn’t reply some of my comments :
1) Too lazy, no time
2) No mood, the comment doesn’t warrant a reply
3) I know you are just soliciting for visits and links, so I didn’t ‘see’ linkwhores
4) I know you do not need me to reply because we are just an MSN away
5) I know my post is sooo good and YOU HAVE TO COMMENT but don’t care whether I replied back
So, if you comment, don’t expect a reply unless the stars are aligned with the moon and the weather is fair with a temperature of 24 deg celcius and a slight breeze. However, you better keep commenting because my blog is a PR5/10 and you get backlinks which will add up to gain PR for you. Not interested in PR? How about traffic, new readers to your blog because people do visit each other. Also not interested? Then you read my blog for what lah?
