Non-bloggers don’t understand the energy it takes to do what we do. Our work goes so unappreciated. It’s really sad. Folk don’t understand the skills and challenges that comes with the territory of blogging but I’m here to erase the myth that we’re just fluffing off.
You have to know how to spell to do what we do. That’s a real challenge for some folks. I think it’s the reason why some folk don’t blog. Are they haters ’cause they’re sure not the players we are.
Your fingers have to be in good shape to move around the keyboard with a certain amount of agility. You know, we have to type as quickly as we think before we forget what we were thinking and know when to slow down and not write anything for the sake of putting a post out there. Timing, folks, is both precious and the key, you know.
You must also be a versatile person to blog. There’s all manner of shit out here on these blogs. I know personally since I put a lot of shit out there. However, you must be very serious about the shit you put out there, whether it’s for fun or serious. I mean, why invest the time if you’re not gonna be serious? Anybody who’s somebody has a blog.
To be one of the best bloggers out there, you need to be a strategist. You know, like putting your eyeglasses in various parts of your home, according to whatever rooms you use your computer in. You can’t be all willy-nilly on the computer, typing up shit you can’t see. That’s a total waste of time.
It takes focus to be a blogger. Like, you can’t have a zillion windows open of blogs you read and make the mistake of commenting on one when you should’ve made the comment on another blog. Believe me, I know these things happen. After it happened to me a coupla times, that is. If you take attention medication, by all means, when you sit down to write, you won’t be blogging from the seat of your pants, okay?
You must be a quick thinker and know the art of trash-talking. Though you must also know when to chill. You see, going from one blog to another requires that kinda flexibility. It’s kinda like being a rubber band. If you don’t know what a rubber band is, you probably don’t need to be blogging anyhow.
You must know how to sing. If you’re gonna sing on your blog anyhow. I mean, like, I’ve been to YouTube and saw folk on there singing, who apparently have been ribbed up by their family that they should be on YouTube but in my humble opinion, shouldn’t. But hey, that’s just me. Refer back to my point on trash-talking.
