How To Be Rude: Anti-Guide To Blogging Here’s how to be inconsiderate, uncouth and downright rude on your blog. Step 1: Stop Listening It’s all mindless babble, right?

What good would listening do? You’ve got a message to sell. Don’t pay any attention to what people are saying about anything else, either. If you want to make a statement, make a statement. Do it. No need to ask anybody for input. Feedback is for sissies.

While we’re at it, you can forget about listening to what people aren’t saying as well. The comments they aren’t leaving at your blog. The thumbs-ups they’re not giving you. The rave reviews you’re not seeing.   So what if the spotlight is shining on another’s face? Blogging rudeness is all about you , baby …
Step 2: Stop Caring … And because it’s all about you, who else matters?

When you start caring about what people think, you open yourself up to all kinds of pain. Why put yourself through all that? It’s so much easier to just speak your mind and go your own way. One of the best ways to be rude – and therefore, one of the best ways to guarantee that you’ll never achieve respect as a blogger – is to stop caring about anything and anyone else except for you and your stuff.
Step 3: Stop Sharing Sharing is tough. Sharing means selfness.  Sharing means listening and caring.

The sooner you stop posting about issues that might interest the members here, the better. The more space and time you’ll have to devote to strutting your own stuff. Besides, why would people interested in your blog want to be diverted away ? Isn’t that antithetical to your quest for domination and control.  Remember your beliefs are the only right ones and it is your job to bring others to your mindset.

Never mind that whole thing about reciprocity. As you sow, so shall you … however it goes, you’ve long since forgotten.
Step 4: Start Complaining

Now that you’ve stopped listening, caring and sharing in your blogging and succeeded to offend members with your vulgar language or perhaps your blog has been removed for failure to comply with the Terms of Service agreement, the next step is to fill the void. Time for some griping! Now is the time to really open up and show your real stuff.  Fire up – say whatever you want. 

Complain about the technology. Complain about  your missing blog. Complain about the chore of going on and on about yourself.  Complain about the comments left on your blog. Heck, you can even complain about the complaining.

Since when did a positive, grateful attitude get you anywhere.
Step 5: Start Being Ugly Now for some real fun. It’s time to get mean and nasty.

Not to mention unforgiving. Remember that fiasco when so-and-so didn’t agree with your self-centered blogging campaign? You could just forgive them and move on, but where’s the fun in that? Track ‘em down and give ‘em a piece of your rude, rude mind.

Wait a sec – don’t track ‘em down. Instead, bring them to you. Start a new blog and just vent. Be as filthy and rotten as you can. After all, people seem to like that.
Moral of the Story Time Let’s review, shall we?

The best ways to be rude in your blogging:


  1. Stop listening.
  2. Stop caring.
  3. Stop sharing.
  4. Start complaining.
  5. Start being ugly.
Now get out there and make me proud. And may you fail miserably to the extent that you do these things.

And whatever you do, do NOT leave a comment below. Because I don’t care, and I’m not listening.

Isn’t rudeness wonderful?

Hi Britt. Will you please remove all those headings posted by TOUGHGIRL that no longer have any substance since the poems have all been deleted. I guess TOUGHGIRL was not as tough as advertised since she packed up and left without so much as a whimper. Seems like she was a bit too THIN-SKINNED to hang out in these parts. TIA...

Hey newman!

 

What did you mean "I dont think it is NOT like you?????" - I thought maybe you meant "it's not like you"? 

 

I think this blog applies to quite a few who blog here and though it's been done in a humourous way, the message does remind us to engage our brains before typing and maybe .... just maybe ... they'll modify? 



Oops... I misspoke....or mistyped or jut made a mistake.  You have it correct.  I meant to say  "it's not like you".   

 

When Bitt originally posted the blog, it had two url's that had the name/words visionarylover as part of the text.

I did not realize you and GW related so well Shaz.  Great to hear though.  Please elaborate??



No, i dont think I will.

Suffice it to say that virgos and pisces get along very well and neither of us does well with geminis, usually.

What is love? Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you. :)

GW,

Congrats girl,  you are getting the Rude thing mastered!  You should work a little harder on having a purpose, if that purpose is nothing more than just being obnoxious.

Yes, YOU'RE MAKING ME PROUD!

Oh, friend....you are cracking me up.  Do I load my .38 cal Special here in PA before traveling out to Fort Wayne, or do I wait to load it until I get to Fort Wayne?  Gotta check the Reciprocity Agreements to see where PA stands with Indiana....

 

Posturing aside....very, very, very funny.  And I DO love this blog!!!!!  And, yes, I have read it many more times than once---and I am trying oh, so hard to heed it...... [Just gotta remind my fingers to listen to my brain.....]

 

Love ya' friend.  As always....you are and represent THE VERY BEST.

 

Pat

I totally relate.  Let's see how many sentences I can start with "I".

 

1.  I never listen.  I read a lot, but my computer is currently not speaking to me.

 

2.  I care, but only a little.  I feel that I am arrogant and conceited, since my own blogging is generally all about me.  If a thread doesn't strike me personally somewhere inside, from funny bone to serious issue to "just the way I feel today", I WILL not be moved to post.

 

3.  I don't share.  If blog listening (which I can't do) plus true caring (which I do only sometimes) equal polite sharing, then I am, by this algebra, a self serving Dominatrix toy collector (which has a tiny, albeit forgettable, spark of appeal, to be deeply honest in a self-revealing and therefore self-ish kind of way).

 

4.  I do complain.  I twisted my ankle.  It's off topic, I know, but it really really hurts.  It is allergy season, and I haven't been to the beach in weeks.  If I had a penny for every complaint I could muster, I could cancel my membership and move to Italy. 

 

5.  I am starting to be ugly.  I believe this to be true. It is THAT time of month.

 

What's my purpose? I really have none.  Except that I appreciate you, MM Counts-elor, and HAD to post, but am, at the moment, feeling contrary and quite rude.  

 

Are you proud of MMe?

Ohhhhhhhhh Pat,

Hey Britt,

 

This blog applies to many it would appear, I'm always amazed at those who venture forth to post their thoughts but then never bother to respond when they do get replies.  Always thought the whole point of blogging on here was to engage with others, but with some it appears not to be the case.  You learn so much about members from their posts, the psychology of it all is interesting to me.  If someone discovers the blogs and takes the time to look back at all the posts a member has done over time, they get a very good picture of who that person is.  I think many on MM don't even know the blogs exist, so it's a very small percentage of members who read them, and even less who participate.  Members' personalities do show so it's a great way of discerning who you would like to get to know better, or who you don't want to engage with at all. 

 

I guess if you somehow see yourself in this post, it could serve as a wake up call, an opportunity to make change and increase interaction, but for some it will go entirely over their heads I'm sure.

 

I know you said not to leave a post, but you know me ... I just don't listen! lol!

 



Ready,

Thanks for your comment--you make several excellent points here, but you do not qualify to be RUDE enough to be commenting on this blog---it appears you have only mastered the "Stop Listening".

Hi Ready.

 

I was going to reply to your comment, but then realized I did not pay attention to what you said.  :)  Reminds me of Seinfeld.

Thanks for the heads up--I think I have it straightened out now.
