Bwospat

 

(Bwah-Spss)

Now all I need to do is my nails and I’m ready to watch Grey’s Anatomy!

 

 

An acronym standing for “Bloggers Who Only Submit Posts About Themselves”.  Most of these posts, which are usually extremely short, show pictures of their nails or their outfit for the night.

Bloater

 

(Blow-Ter)

 

 

The heights of some blogger's egos is immeasurable...

 

1)  A person who writes posts with one or two sentences, or just reblogs other’s posts. This is considered “floating”, thus the marriage of the two words “Blogger” and “floater”.

 

2) A blogger who tries to float on their previous hard work by only writing posts that direct readers to the old originals.

NORBL

 

(Nohr-Bull)

One more one-sentence blog and I jump from the nearest bridge!

 

 

1) The acronym for the National Organization for the Reform of Blogging Legislation.  The sister organization of the pot-promoting NORML, NORBL fights for the rights of bloggers to behead, disembowel, and otherwise irritate those other bloggers who waste their time posting one and two sentence posts about why they aren’t writing a post.

 

2)  Eddy Murphy’s pot-smoking female counter-self.  Having dissociated from reality, Mr. Murphy fell into the lives of his former movie bomb characters,

Blam

 

(Blah-Mm)

 

 

I just spent the last 40 minutes finding out one person had to do laundry, three had to clean their apartments (two in mom's basement!) and five had medical appointments. Four others were reporting on 7 year old sporting events!
I wanna kill! Kill! Kill!

 

 

1)  An acronym for “Bloggers Losing All Morals”. Sometimes the almighty buck wins and the blogger chases riches, only to be shot down.

 

2)  The sound a blog reader makes when they realize that they’ve opened a link to a blog that they are following, only to find one sentence, usually about a medical appointment or what they are going to wear/do/go…

 Spamalot

Defender of the meek, killer of spammers, Sir Spamalot

 

 

(Spah-Mah-Laht)

 

 

1)  A medieval blogger who posts multiple short posts per day. The thought is that if they can get hundreds of views per day with one blog post, they should be able to get thousands of views with ten short posts.

 

2)  Bloggers who fill your inbox with notices of multiple blog postings per day. Some bloggers post 10 and more blogs per day, with each one being only 3 to 5 sentences long, or showing just 1 or 2 pictures.

 

*note;  Today’s post was brought to you by the Knights Templar, defenders of post readers and bloggers alike.

Bleater

 

 

(Blee-T’er)

 

One quick sentence and I'm off to see if she's a real person or not!

 

1)  A blogger who cheats by posting a one or two sentence post, usually saying not much more than “sorry for not putting a post out today but I was really busy!”,  What they’re actually saying is that they thought they may have had a chance at a real life for a minute there, but came back to their senses the following day with an epic, 4500 word post (which said about as much as the one sentence post did)

 

2)  A really old blog or blogger (man, she’s a real bleater, that one!)

 

* note ; Today’s post was brought to you by me! That’s right, me, myself, no help at all! Get over it, already!

 

 

*note;  if you have any suggestions for a fake, blogging-related word or acronym that you like, despise or use, please leave it as a comment, along with a short definition and the phonetics. Your suggestions may well be an upcoming daily feature!

 

Subject to change without notice. Words may appear closer in a mirror than they actually are. 9 out of 10 librarians  are mousey introverts, 19 times out of 20, yet still manage to appear to be sexy. This site is not endorsed by the SPCB (the second SPC (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty) in the phone book – the SPCA (Animals) hogged the first spot on me again! Those brutes!) the apathetic and appallingly apropos “Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Bloggers” (donations accepted and suggested).

How Sweet It Is?

Is Short Sweet?

(The scourge of the short post)

The new trend in Blogging seems to be to post as little information as possible. Some bloggers are rolling out at least 10 or more posts a day, with no more than a few sentences per post, expecting their legion of followers to keep up with them, view and comment on their tiny little posts.

Many bloggers are also posting just one to three pictures, with no text, and expect their readers to keep coming back! Now, if the pictures are of amazing places or astounding events, then maybe they can pull it off… but when the pictures are of themselves, or their pets, or their cities or other mundane objects nobody else really gives a rats ass about, well then maybe they should expect to lose about 90% of their followers, if they had any to begin with.

I say, enough is enough!  I really am not interested in how you did your nails tonight!  Maybe if you had bought some sex neglige or something and wanted to show that off at the same time, but just the nails? That’s an all-around no! However, i did notice one such blog with over 20 POSITIVE comments (and no negative ones!) as well as over 100 page views! Okay, so in revenue terms that’s about $0.20 – but still, that’s still telling the poster poser that what they are doing is great! Stop it! Stop it now!

Another 27 words, another $10,000 !!! Woohoo, who said you had to write good, intelligent posts?

Either tell me a story, make me laugh or cry, or show me some amazing pictures that will blow my mind. I don’t want to go through the trouble and time to open a bunch of posts just to see a picture or two of your cats lying on the couch, your boyfriend in bed or your kids with food on their faces; it’s cute to you, but not to me!

If you want to write a short post now and then, with apologies to your fans for not beguiling them with your usual length and witty banter, then the occasional shorty can be acceptable. But too many bloggers are now putting out posts that are shorter than a newswire feed about the newest troubles in Afghanistan, or Israel’s intent to bomb Iran back to the days of Barney and Fred.

The major cities in North America are putting up with a bunch of “Occupy” protests – and we actually need a new one, like “De-Occupy Crappy Blogs”; maybe more people would come out for that one, instead of just the average heroin junkie, homeless people and philosophy grads who couldn’t find jobs after accumulating a couple of hundred thousand dollars in student loans.

So, it’s time to roll out the newest anti-something campaign, and this one is called;

Spas

Also known as – “Short Posts Are Stupid!”

But, spas?  As in more than one Spa? Really?

No, Spas as in Short Posts Are Stupid, stupid! (think spazz but spoken by Snooki!)

Okay, now I will admit to putting out a couple of really short posts, one comes to mind where the title was “Do You Want To Make $10,000 a Day Writing Online”, and the content was, simply, “Me too!”… but that was a joke, and taken as such by my legion of followers. Well, except for one, who let me know in no uncertain terms that what i was doing was stupid beyond comprehension…

Legion? My legion? What am i, a vampire? Self-anointed deity?

Yes, my legion! All 43 of them!

So, with the scourge of short posts in mind…

See you tomorrow!
