Blog Mantra and Blog War


war has been declared...
Posted by Hello

[EDITED to sound less vindicative, but retaining the substance of the problem and the solution. Thanks to a blogger ally who had the guts to scold me and question my tone. {wink] She knows who I refer to.]

The blogosphere, especially the business sector of it, had a seemingly spontaneous set of core values.

If Derrida were here, he might be interested in how this set of core values arose from the "flux", or the metaphysical, primal source-point of the "now".

What was this set of blogging's core value?

This...


UNIVERSAL BUSINESS BLOG MANTRA (original):


Authenticity. Passion. Transparency.


Now, with immoral practitioners proclaiming their criminal intent to "steal" intellectual property...

...and fake blog consultants advocating such spurious things as fictional character blogs, ghost blogs, simulated blogs, vending machine blogs, and quasi-team blogs...

...I have proposed an expansion, thus...


UNIVERSAL BUSINESS BLOG MANTRA (updated):

Authenticity.
Passion.
Transparency.
Originality.
Integrity.
Interactive Community.


I would have added "Profitability" but I believe that is a natural offshoot of adhering rigorously to the core values, as expressed in the mantra.

BLOGO-COMBAT BATTLE CRY

The battle lines are being drawn.

You will have to decide where you stand on these issues.

We've seen how mail became junk mail, phones became telemarketing, television became infomercials, and email became spam.

We aim to defend the blogosphere from similar corruptions.
