A few of my blogger friends has asked me to create our own group or network of bloggers that will be very different from the existing blogger groups which we believe are just too damn “complicated” and “inconvenient” for having too many restricting rules or requirements, and just existing primarily to become a means to get more hits or higher page ranks.
I understand the necessity for “law and order”,and the need to promote our blogs to stardom, but many are complaining its making blogging less fun and …well…a bit taxing for us who are just blogging for fun, as a past time, as a hobby, as a part-time productive means to spend…. or waste time, etc., and “not entirely” for profit, page rank, number of page views or hits, or even fame and recognition. We just want to blog and be happy with it, not deal with the complexities of comments exchange (and the likes) and learn to “police” or “discipline” ourselves to become professional and dependable bloggers.
To be fair, transparent and open to all, with no deception or trying to outdo each other. Our aim is to become a more united, with less issues and grievances, and helping each other out to excel and work well with PRs and clients who require our help and services.
Gone are the days when blogs are meant to express and not to impress? I hope not!
So could you help me out on your perception of an ideal bloggers group and how it should be laid out, and a great and descriptive name we should call the group?
Thanks, and let me know if you wish to join this group.
