There seems to be an awful lot of talk on Facebook in the SL blogger circles about the do this and the don’t do that. I honestly feel like somethings are basic blogger common sense, but at the end of the day there is only one real answer to the how to blog question. ANY WAY YOU WANT! I joke around a lot saying, “I do what I want.” Yet, the statement is truer than most would believe. I’ve heard people say, “Don’t use bad language in your blog. Its not professional.” Fuck that, its my blog and I’ll damn well write whatever I want. Now, I’m fully aware that some designers would not like to sponsor a blogger like me. That’s fine. I completely understand. So, then the decision falls on me as to which is more important….being true to myself or getting sponsors? For me, the answer is simple. I did not begin blogging with the hopes of obtaining free stuff. I’ve never catered my blog to appeal to a certain audience. My regular readers (all five of them) will tell you that when you click on my blog link there’s absolutely no telling what you will find. However, one thing is for sure. You WILL find links to the items, poses, and places I’ve blogged if at all possible.
I’ve heard that posting lyrics and links to a song is lazy. Ok, well, go write a book for each of your blog posts and leave me to mine. Because on the other side of that coin, I’ve had people thank me for introducing them to music or lyrics they weren’t familiar with before. I’ve heard people say that writing anything is a waste of time. Ah, but guess what? I don’t really write for others as much as I write for myself. You see, I’m easily amused and I also know that ranting can often be good for soul. So, whether I write or share a poem, share a song, write a story, talk about my life, or rant about something that’s been on my mind. I do it for me, first and foremost. I will admit that it sends me over the moon with glee when someone tells me that they enjoyed something in my blog.
So, to my fellow bloggers out there worrying about the “rules of blogging,” remember that the very first rule and really the only one that matters is: Enjoy yourself.
