I haven’t seen anyone actually take a moment and ask themselves, especially people involved in the roleplay community, and more-so, the roleplay and fantasy blogging community, why this is okay to do. What I mean exactly is, spamming everyone, and any group with group notice privileges to anyone in the group, with their blogs. How is this the normal thing to do now? Am I just old fashioned?
The highlighted group notices are actually all the same person, for the same blog, all the same day, in like 2-3 groups. So that’s multiple blog posts in one way — which is totally okay, but they didn’t even have the respect of their own hard work of blogging, to actually title the group post and be at least semi intelligent in regards to a small snippet of why I should check out their blog. Nope, just spam. Is this how blogging has evolved in our community?
I’m sure I probably sound like a bitter blogger, one that has never been invited to blog the fantasy gacha and sure, I would love to. I don’t spam groups with my blog though, so I’m sure my measly views aren’t compared to these blogs — which aren’t even syndicated in the gorean feed. Truly, I cannot stand checking my e-mail and seeing people berating my group offlines with blog posts that have little effort put in to them — be it the post or the outfits themselves.
Of course, I fully support the new and up and coming bloggers, and I know it can be rough to figure out your computers graphics, and finding your own personal style but please, have some pride about what you do and don’t shove your blog down my throat like a pushy door to door salesman. We, as bloggers, need to be more professional then this.
