Deconstructive Blogging 2: critical & creative indifference

Critical & Creative Indifference


[first lesson]:

"Deconstructive Blogging"




Lesson #2




READER COMMENT:

Steven, dead blogging is like hunting, long way going, failures over failures, accidents, thunderstorms, lonely nights, but bringing closer hunter and the hunted. In the end failure is not allowed, if the hunter wants to survive. But often hunters do not return too.

READER COMMENT:


Steven,

Take a break, buddy. Go out and see some sun, have some fun.

We will still be here when you get back, I promise. :-)

I am full of breaks, but thanks.

I am readying myself to make some very bizarre posts for a while, where I switch strategies, methodologies, and presentiments in a constant flashing that acts as internal strobe.

From private to gregarious, even a remote hint of trivial drivel about meaningless mundanities and meandereings.

About Psycho Dad leaving the complex, with "Good Riddance" scrawled triumphantly with brown sandstone rock, a cave art mysterio curio, scribbled on the sidewalk, at it's marginal next step into abode proper, the first and last flagstone, the flag of animosity replaced with therapeutic amnesia:

When X is gone from sight,
X has lost the fight.

I'm fully of breaks with tradition.

Full of broken things and inevitable things, culminating in perpetual triumph over all things at all times.

P.S. And remember everyone, this is not a personal blog.

It's a public information service micro-site, disguised as a "weblog".

Nothing is ultimately being "logged" here, only in a temporary and miniaturized manner.

:^)

...meaning: nearly nothing here is about me.

"Dead Blogging" and "Blue Blogging" are essays from me about bloggers casualties I'm seeing with astonished eyes, best blog minds renouncing either comments, frequent updates, syndication, podcasting, audioblogging, vlogging, glogs and other assistive tech, or blogging altogether.

As a deconstructivist blogologist, I merely peer and port.

[END QUOTE from comment thread
to "Dead Blogging"]



Lesson #2


consists of this:


cultivation of critical
and creative indifference.


This is the energy that drives one
to
awareness/whereness
and harnassed innovation,

to the poor and disadvantaged,
the bleak and the bloated:

product as bene-fit,
fit and in tip top shape
to be a warrior against
mediocrity.

--or--

product: vain repetition.

product: unaimed amelioration.

product: redundant over-recognition.

product: soiled sullied unsallying forth reflex.




--and--




One could be cynical as well as sharp.

A sharp tongued blogger with a sharp wit as well.

A clever one could stop posting essays and asides.

Could then merely post fragments, excerpts, entireties

of reader comments, comments on his/her own blog,


and let readers react to that,

a post of comments on another post,

then post the reactions of readers to readers' reactions,

on and on into eternity: still a blog?

with all 9 Blog Core Values intact?



When business finally figures out,

they finally realize that

what makes a blog

new, different, better,

revolutionary,

cataclysmic,

is

NOT

the "appointed opinionating
and radiant writing".


It's not the blogger

nor his or her postings

that make a blog

The World Conqueror

of Communication Media.



What makes blogs powerful

for personal propaganda/ponderings,

and international interactivities,

demolishing racial, religious,

ideological barriers to peace,


--and--


for corporate communications

and project collaborations,

keeping track of what happened last,

and team input about it



{DOES ALL THIS}



is

the

humble

little

powerhouse:


the comment.



Result of this enlightenment:

critical and creative

indifference to ones own blog

and the blogosophere.



Not "all businesses blogging".

Never.

Only the good ones.

The businesses that care about customers,

and reflect it in customer service,

superior products, sensational support.


Who will read the comments

and change their company

to correspond more closely

with customer conditionalities.
