Your/My Site is damn Boring and Infantile
SingaBloodypore writes that Singapore Blogs are infantile.
So the few bloggers that actually care about what he wrote, please refrain from using cutesy fonts like tHiS, and stop writing about your daily inane activities and stop posting/taking silly faces. And from today, start writing on events of great importance like casinos. And stop writing thing like what happened in your last dental appointment. No one cares. Ok?
I have ranted in the past about this, and I've come across a fair share of horrible blogs with bad midi music, but I've realised this:
Just as there are serious books in the bookstore, there are also comic books and humorous books on sale there. You don't just read serious weighty books on politics/science/economics do you? Sometimes, you take a break and read a frivolous trashy celebrity magazine.
Yes, Singapore has very few "serious" blogs. And sometimes, when the blogs that get the most hits are those like Xiaxue, you start to realise where the typical Singaporean websurfer's interests lie. You ask why?
The same reason why the Speakers Corner failed. Thats why. Lack of an audience, and Lack of people with an opinion. Those with opinions are mostly busy driving taxis to give a damn about blogging.
Another thing, Microsoft has a new slogan/mantra for its next operating system.
"It Just Works.
Apple Users has been saying this about their computers for all these years, Bill.
