Blogging has become another important social networking tool in the past few years. Through blogrolling, commenting etc. we keep in touch with fellow bloggers of similar interests and/or nationaliry. I have heard from some of my friends that it is quite difficult to know a person through his/her blogs. I always used to tell that, one can hide certain personality traits for sometime, but over a long period of time and several dozens of posts, they would eventually be revealed. In that sense, this is my attempt to categorize the bloggers.
Starting with a positive point, these bloggers, who are mostly unmarried, write about everything they like and what they are happy about. When one reads such a blog, it will look as if the world is one big happy sphere with nothing but positive energy vibrating through it. They have the uncanny ability to see the good in everything around them. Its good to visit such blogs once a while.
* Dual personality:
And then there are some who write so sweet posts which totally apply to one and all, and we form one sort of impression about them. In the very next post, we see a nasty attack on some celebrity and they totally defend what they write. When someone strongly protests their writings, they go to the usual offending mode of "This is my opinion, and I can write whatever I think in my blog.. who asked you to come and see me?" kind of things. IMHO, blogs are open to public and are of course criticizable. These bloggers are highly temperamental and moody too. People who comment regularly in such blogs are also scared to write anything -ve about that person. Even if they write a simple but -ve comment like "I think you are wrong" they put a smiley in the end. I laugh at those smileys, which, to me, look like white flags saying, "Hey I am your friend.. dont shoot me!!".
* Deer in the disguise of a tiger:
These are the bloggers who show a very brave, smart and 'I-know-all' face in the blog. They are introvert &/or shy &/or scared in real life that they lead a pseudo life in the blog world. They get exposed when they are seen in real, or when they appear in some media. Just a few minutes ago I saw a tiger stripping itself to show the bunny inside. It was so hilarious. My whole impression on him has changed dramatically that I tend to see his writings in a totally new light.
They simply mind their business. They have their small world of family, movies, music, books and things around these, about which they blog. Sometimes I imagine them sitting in front of their desktop when the kids are playing around them, and the wife is calling from kitchen saying that the dinner is ready. They hardly get angry, and I dont know how to show my anger to them if they write something I strongly disagree. Thats bcos if someone scolds them in the comments, they still reply with a smile, and they dont hide their biased view.
You cant just visit these blogs any time of the day. It is advisable to visit them only when you are at your alert best, bcoz their writings make you think a lot and you need to break your head. In order to fully understand their personality, several months are required. They cant simply write an XYZ post... their standard of intelligence has to be seen in every post. I wonder how they will be at their home.
They love writing, and enjoy sharing their thoughts with others. They want to write so much but they have some restrictions. They can't afford to reveal their identity, due to some hesitation or shyness or fear. Their sp0use doesnt like their blogging activity, and hence there is some conflict. They keep a pseudoname and write carefully so that no hint about them is known. Very hard to see comments from people who personally know them.
If you think about some other category, feel free to comment. And, yeah, have a good weekend!! :)
