I was going to do a “THINGS ONLY BLOGGERS UNDERSTAND!” post but I thought I might throw up if I did that, because I’d feel like I’m trying to cater to an audience, which is NOT how I roll.
Even THIS is making me question things. What’s a “part” of the blogging world?
Aren’t we all connected? Which part am I talking about? Teen bloggers, or just me, or just the people I know and what I’ve seen? THAT’s subjective, and there are plenty of teens I haven’t found yet – AHEM that sounds strange shh.
But just go with it. The “part” I’m talking about? Interpret that how you will. My head hurts and thinking about it too much makes me feel strange. After all, this is just MY take on things. And screw lists; let’s do paragraphs. I hate disorganisation oh my god
If you know the bloggers I know, you’ve seen the word blogosphere floating around. I use it, my friend L uses it, and so does a LOT of other people. But WHERE did it come from?
I used it a lot before, but I wasn’t the first. I have no idea who was, but if you think it’s you, WELL DONE because it’s a “common” word now. I’m not even sure who uses it; it just seems to be the word we use.
Also, everyone seems to know everyone else. Here, I’m just talking about the teens I know because I’m an exclusionist fuck, but here are some bloggers and I guarantee you’re going to (or you may, GOD I’m so superior-sounding) recognise them.
Luna, LyfWithEm, Ateenagediaryonline, Reine. See? There are just some common names floating around, that you know instantly. I’m talking GENERALLY here, not everyone. In award posts, I read them and often recognise the majority of names, and blogseaand it makes me wonder why.
This isn’t weird, it’s just lovely. When someone’s down, you can ALWAYS see an amazing comment from someone. We all come together to support this person, whoever they are. I LOVE that.
What other things have you noticed about the bit of the blogging world you’re in? Maybe it’s the same as mine, or maybe you’ve got an entirely different interpretation. It’s a crazy place, but it makes me happy.
IM 10 AWAY from 1000 STOP WHAT
Anyway, I’ll just crawl away now… Oh yeah, have you noticed that when someone makes a post flailing with happiness about the amount of followers they have, NO MATTER how many it is, people congratulate them? It’s amazing and how it should be. 10, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000. Same amount of congratulations for each one.
From Elm 🙂
