I have always prided myself in trying to run a fair blog. Being able to maintain a balance where you can feel comfortable to express both the pros and cons in any post I write for us to discuss. Sadly, many blog owners are biased in the posts they write and if by chance you have opposing views of the topic being discussed, you can expect to be run off. The blog owner may not be the one to make your stay miserable but he/she will overlook the flack you receive from the regular contributors. The blog owner will step in if you dare to retaliate and/or you challenge the ones who want to see you out of there. You will be the one at fault, period. I will do my best to explain more on this later.
Why would a person take the time to write posts and welcome people to come to their blog, incognito, using screen names to discuss the topic you put before them? One reason is that it a great to converse with people all over the world and read their differing opinions on the subject matter. It should be a form of relaxation and an escape from the trials and tribulations of the real world. This is when balance should come into play and that can be achieved if the blog owner intermingles with the contributors and be on the same par with them. Being on the same par gives us the opportunity to teach each other. What a great learning experience can be achieved in this way. This does not mean that we have to constantly agree with everything the other participants say. It is quite healthy to disagree and if you feel like venting or being snarkie (one of my traits) go for it.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a blog were to be that perfect utopia where we look forward to frequent in our spare time? So much for dreaming so now back to reality….
There is a great deal of competition among blog owners and the blososphere is changing. Blog owners are beginning to take on a new approach and more are becoming biased. The quantity of the hits that one can attract to the blog has replaced the quality of the posts written by the blog owner. The blog owner now will cater to an audience that he thinks will garner the most hits. He will write what he thinks they want to hear and will never sway off course even if he does not believe what is contained in the material that he posts. Hits inflate the ego~~ also a blog owner selling himself in the post is a tell tale sign.
So in essence, the blog owner will hand pick you..
His select few will parrot the blog owner’s every word and all will vie for the cracker….
And if you venture into his blog, and voice a differing opinion, this is how you will end up….
Something else that is taboo in an ego driven blog, never under any circumstances make light of a situation or smile as humor is a deadly sin. Don’t even suggest that you love someone’s brain or you will be accused of committing adultery with a frontal lobe and for goodness sake, if you should respond to a regular who has been up half the nite hitting the booze and trying to bait you, don’t do it! Make your exit asap !!
A biased person will never be able to see the forest because of the trees. They have tunnel vision. How can a person differentiate sweet from sour unless they have tasted both? In the same way, how can you assess a situation without observing both sides? Sound logical?
