Maybe I am the only one that feels this way about the blogosphere but blogging has become more and more mechanical and losing it’s finest that made it so charmingly delightful.
I can’t place my finger on the moment where blogging which was so mysterious and intriguing lost it inability to connect with the commoner but in my opinion it has left us.
The commoner who loves to read about vacations and view photos of and places, family and friends. The commoner who loves to check and scan through the reader for human moments….
And you know sometimes, I feel like the consumer who has just realized that the secretary that answered the phone has just been replaced by an automated system.😲😲😢😢😭😭
UGH….COME On Man…Can I speak to a human
Important is the human touch in the life of a child. Katherine Harmon wrote an article in Scientific American and she said,
The stark institutional isolation prevalent in the orphanages of some countries might have mostly melted away decades ago, but many babies and young children all over the world still grow up in environments where touch and emotional engagement are lacking. Many children who have not had ample physical and emotional attention are at higher risk for behavioral, emotional and social problems as they grow up.
And I believe important is the human touch in the life of a blog and a successful blogosphere .
However, frighteningly enough this is how I feel concerning the blogosphere today. We have become so self absorbed and mechanical in our interactions towards posting our great creations that we have lost that human element.
The blog reader has become like an orphanage that has lost its ability to interact with its children in order to preserve the human touch.
I have gone on other sites only to witness a dumping ground for blogs and videos. People have become so consumed by their own self imaged that they have forgotten the blog community.
Does anyone really read other people’s blogs anymore? Or do we just drop off and walk away never to think of anyone else’s plight? Just something to think about! Hmm…what could it be?
The Three Commandments Of Blogging:
- Don’t write blogs you aren’t willing to read.
- Be considerate to your readers and don’t write a book.
- Share your platform and the blogs you love with others.
So in conclusion, we need to bring back community in blogging. Don’t just blog for what you can get out of it! Don’t just be mechanical but do unto others as you would have them to do unto you.
There is nothing wrong with self promotion…I love it but if you are the only general that can make for a very lonely existence.
