Do you know what really bugs me? Bloggers who don't participate in the debate or discussion they started.
It's like they've lobbed a pseudo-intellectual blog-bomb into the ether then scurry away to hide in their blog-bunker. Jumping onto the zeitgeist bandwagon the sycophantic plebeians of social media swarm around their blog like it was the greatest thing since god knows what. Unwittingly feeding the behaviour and encouraging more blog-bombing. WTF?
Perhaps it's ignorance... Perhaps if we don't tell them engagement is an interesting dance between people they won't ever know? That their beautifully crafted bouquet of a blog is in fact a Pseudo-Intellectual Blog-Bomb of Ignorance.
Perhaps standing up and defending what you have to say is hard work... Perhaps being brave enough to listen and change your views doesn't come easy...
Guess what? IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE EASY. It's called authenticity. It's called integrity. It's where you'll find respect.
Perhaps the audience get something from this reverse monologue... I don't. Would you write a message or talk to a book? No! Then why would you engage in a monologue with a blog post? I'd much rather have a meaningful conversation or debate with people who can do more than just vomit into a blog and suck up the adoration of the star-struck.
It's my personal opinion of course but I'm happy to look at it through your eyes and learn something new.
Oh and if you're reading this thinking it's just David having a bit of a rant, I'm not. I'm initiating a dialogue with you and I'd love to hear what you have to say. You know where to find me!
