Why ‘Blogging is like Sex

Thursday, 8 November 2007 — by

How often do you do it? Most people are a little hesitant at first. They try it once or twice and are not sure whether or not they like it. They’re a bit bemused as to why so many people seem to rave about it…

They keep trying and after a while they find that it’s really quite fun and pleasurable.

But beginners still tend to be clumsy until they’ve had a fair amount of feedback, often from people with more experience.

Many people then get to the stage with their blogging where they can’t get enough of it. They blog at least once a day — sometimes more often than that.

Frequent bloggers may even chuckle at those poor sad individuals who only get to blog once or twice a month.

It’s best not to blog when you’re drunk as you’re likely to regret it the next morning. And you may get involved in topics you’d normally avoid when sober.

You need to vary your blogging technique to avoid it getting repetitive and boring.

Many of us blog first thing in the morning, or more often just before going to sleep.

Although we tend to think that our efforts will be appreciated, there’s no substitute for good positive feedback.

Most people know they shouldn’t do it at work but some have a go anyway.

The length of a blog is sometimes over rated.

And don’t try to fake it. If you’re not really into the subject don’t bother pretending in order to please your readers. They can tell the difference.

What’s normal — as in how often do you blog? Well I aim for 2 to 3 times a week but I don’t always manage it…

Awesome post, instead of length being overrated, you could say that bloggers compare the length of their own posts to that of another blogger’s.

This article was originally posted as a ‘blog article on Ecademy, an international business network by Mark Lee.

Of course, I just had to get his consent to repost it here on Blah, Blah! Technology.

Glad you all like, and thanks to Shana for setting the ball rolling…

I haven’t thought about it like that so far. I think from now on I’ll have more fun blogging and should do it more often.

Heidi Cool → Friday, 9 November 2007 @ 20:34 BDT

Brilliant. If only I had the time to blog more frequently.

Interesting analogy huh. ^^,

Like sex, I blog whenever there is the urge and I am in the right place.

Cheers!

Well, for the solo sexaholics, there’s that, blindness and tennis elbow…
