Just like movie actors, we in blogdom have our own unique language — bloggerspeak. If you are new in town, you may even fall for it. Even seasoned bloggers are not immune to it, I must admit :).
Here is my effort to deconstruct some of it for you. Sometimes I do have so much time to kill, I tell you! Yes, you can thank me all you want in the comments!
I only write for myself. I don’t care for views and followers.
Deconstructed: I have tried to get visitors by hook or by crook but have failed miserably each time. I hate everyone popular to death!
I only want honest feedback.
Deconstructed As long as it is all good :).
I love your writing. You inspire me. I look forward to your posts.
Deconstructed: Only if you give me return visits and leave comments on my blog. My love vanishes if you stop!
Nice post. Amazing. What imagery. How visual!
Deconstructed: This is the best I could do from the comments I read above.
You write so well. I am looking forward to a book from you.
Deconstructed As long as you don’t expect me to buy it.
Who cares for awards? They are anyway dished out only to popular bloggers.
Deconstructed I would give my arm and leg for one but no one considers me.
I like only genuine readers.
Deconstructed By genuine I mean anyone who will comment on my post and also agree with what I write. Even Russian hackers are welcome as long as they add to the pageviews!
Crisp review. I think I will add this book to my must-read list!
Deconstructed: Your review put me to sleep! What book was that again?
This post has been sponsored by ….. But all opinions expressed are my honest views.
Deconstructed: After the client supplied the draft, added a couple of links and changed the tone.
I am so fortunate to have met such fantastic people on my blogging journey. They are friends for life.
Deconstructed: Only as long as they continue to read, comment on and share my work.
Your writing is so simple and beautiful. It strikes a chord every single time.
Deconstructed: Even my 10-year-old child can write better than that.
Hahaha This was so humorous. Fun post! Masterful satire!
Deconstructed: I did not find anything funny but what the hell everyone says it is funny so it must be.
Feel free to add to this list with some of your own gems of bloggerspeak here.
