Humor: The Real Blogger’s Manifesto

January 31st, 2007 by DeafBlogger.com

Five years ago, hearing blogger Chris Pirillo came up with The Blogger’s Manifesto. Shortly afterwards, David Weinberger (also hearing) came up with the tongue-in-cheek parody, The Real Blogger’s Manifesto.

Who says bloggers can’t laugh at themselves?

Enjoy!

The Real Blogger’s Manifesto

Life is uncensored. Life is uncensored, but my clients and my Mom may be reading my blog.
You have no right to judge me. You have no right to judge me, but judging you is totally fun.
If you don’t like what you see, look elsewhere. If you don’t like what you see, still link to me.
I love talking about my life. I love talking about my life but, unfortunately, not to myself.
I love writing about other people’s lives. I love writing about other people’s lives when it makes my life look good.
I will post whenever I feel like posting. I will post obsessively.
I don’t have to blog every meme. I don’t have to blog every meme. But I will. Oh, and I count fantasies, insults and grunts as memes.
You don’t have to agree with everything I say. You don’t have to agree with everything I say so long as you link to me.
I egosurf Daypop, Google, and Blogdex nightly. I egosurf Daypop, Google and Blogdex compulsively as if it gave meaning to my life.
I share what I want to share. I share what I want to share. But you have to ask first.
I like linking to Dave, Doc, Evan, and Cam. I like linking to people who link to me.
Blogging is theraputic. Blogging is a neurosis.
Pictures of myself are not obligatory. Pictures of myself are highly edited.
I visit every site in my blogroller regularly. I visit every site in my blogroller regularly to make sure they’re still linking to me.
I won’t post for the sake of posting. I won’t post for the sake of posting. I will post to get linked to.
I have a life outside of blogging. I have a life outside of blogging, but when I blog about it, I lie.
I have registered my blogging tool(s). I have registered my blogging tool under the name “B. S. Bogusboy”
I may criticize other bloggers, not harass them. I may criticize other bloggers, but I will only harrass them until they link to me.
I have the right to revise a post. If you criticize me, I will revise my post so that yours looks stupid.
When blogging becomes a chore, I’ll quit doing it. When blogging becomes a chore, I’ll write about my cat. Again.
I’ve given something back to the blogging community. I’m giving the blogging community a headache.
If I want to complain about something, I will. I want to complain about everything.
If I want to praise something, I will. If I praise you, you must link to me.
I am not the best blogger on the planet. I’m the best @$%&# blogger on the planet.
I don’t have to explain myself to you. I don’t have to explain myself to you. But I will. Endlessly. Until you link to me.
