I wonder who died and appointed a voice for bloggers?

I took this screenshot from Malaysiakini.

You have to make your own conclusion and guess what I am trying to say.

Richard probably can shed some light.

Apparently, the bloggers (I am not included because I never like to associate myself with any group of bloggers) in Malaysia have a protem chairman (though I do not know what the heck protem means) who elected himself to be the voice of bloggers in Malaysia. It was all fun for some of them because this person is anti-Pak Lah and especially KJ. But now….with the shift in the winds, I think I can sniff the smell of shit.

And that brings me to the question – We are like the chicken and egg argument. Which comes first? The same with bloggers. Are we a person first or a blogger first? Which of course, to me, I am a person first, through and true. So, why would I, a person, needs anyone to represent my voice? I don’t need people to clean my shit, thank you very much. If I have the hands to write a blog, I have the hands to clean my arse, if I need to.

  1. I know what you are talking about. I blog for myself. It is an expression of my thoughts, to be shared with others. You like, you read. Don’t like, don’t read. We don’t need a rep to speak for us, eh? My blogging has raised quite a few eyebrows among family and close friends. One even called me a non-people person, seeking self glory, bored, seeking attention, and attribute these to why I blog.

  2. As individual we can align to any party of our choosing be it for money or any kind of incentives.

    As bloggers especially socio-political blogs, we penned our thoughts which should be neutral and base on true facts. We will “attack” anyone that is perceived to have done wrong even if it is the party we are aligned too.

    We cannot argue and defend the indefensible just because we wanted to be in the good book of our party.

  3. Do they realise that fewer and fewer people are reading their blogs faithfully since they changed sail? I noticed that some bloggers are even talking to themselves in the comment section. Disillusionment is setting in.
