A Bit More Confusion.

The Blogger dashboard features a woman called Rebecca, whose blog was selected for ‘Blogs of Note.’ It includes the statement:

‘After she was Noted, Rebecca received many new followers and emails asking her about her tips for blogging.’

I don’t understand this (seems I’m not understanding much tonight.) Why don’t those people just write what they want to write, how they want to write it – stand on their own two feet and be authentic? What better way is there? Why do they need ‘tips for blogging?’ And who the hell takes it that seriously anyway?

some people take it very seriously. And it's surprising how, even online, where no one knows you, how frustrating it can be when it seems like no one is reading or listening. I'd wager that's why they want tips, unless they're journalists, in which case looking at successful publications is a legitimate part of their job.

So, a symptom of insecurity. I agree.
