When I am a blog, I am not your friend

When I am a blog, I am not your friend, comrade, chee-mui, bunch of housewives, reliable dear thelma.
When I am blog, I am not your sister, mother, auntie or long distant cousin’s auntie yadda yadda yadda.
When I am a blog, I am not your church-y fren-si, holey-moley person, self-righteous, unblemished, sugar dripping out of my mouth person.
When I am blog, I am not the regular law abiding citizen.
When I am a blog, I am not someone you can trust.
Get that in your mind.
Repeat the above a million times.
Drill yourself that if every blogger writes to please their mother, fader, sister, blader, church pastor, Buddhist monk, Hindu priest, Prime Minister, opposition leaders….then……
there will be no farking blogs worth reading at all!
So, take a pencil and draw a bold, bright line that a blog is not a person. It is just a freaking blog for reading pleasure. Just like you can chuck a magazine you hate into the dustbin, you can just do yourself the favour of clicking the red box with white x.
BTW, ALi Rustam also starts a blog. Khir Toyo also starts a blog. Not long, we shall hari-hari see sandiwara of blog wars between the politicians. Woohoo! I see bright future in popcorn and coke business. Errmmm..wait a minute, they don’t have the concept of what I mentioned up there. So, it is just some boring press release articles that will make you doze off.
