The Cream And Scum Of Blogging…

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 1, the first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
Now in my complete one year blog stint I have never blogged about ‘blogging’ as such so this is a first.
The reason I began blogging is to create a space, a channel to express my feelings.
The cream, the absolute icing on the cake is that first you get to express your opinions and have them read by the netizens, second you get to read such great posts by people all over the world and interact with them as well.
The scum would be the uncontrolled and rampant misuse of blogs by people who do not understand the actual purpose behind the creation of a blog. These people use their blogs without adhering to a basic set of ethics and hence post plagiarised or objectionable content (written and otherwise).
The fellow Blog-a-Tonics who took part in this Blog-a-Ton are,
Saimanohar, Dhiman, Vipul Grover, Avdi, Daisy Blue, Sid 'Ravan' Kabe, Shankar, Shilpa Garg, Bharathi, Ranee, Ranee again and Pawan.Click on their respective names to read their posts on The Cream and Scum of Blogging.To be part of the next edition of this online marathon, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

Short and sensible post.. size doesnt matter..

Dhiman said...

Yeah true plagarism is a menace in blogosphere.... but i these copycats do get caught sooner or later.... afterall the readers of blogs are all sensible people.... i don't understand why people give credit where its due and ask for permission before copying ....anyway that was a brief & to the point take on 'Cream & 'Scum' of blogging...

ARJuna said...

Thank you Sid, Bharati, Saimanohar and Dhiman.
This is the first time I have done a short post on such a major topic, I was nervous on how it would be recieved. But it's great to see that you people are liking the conciseness.
Thanks again.

Great post arjuna.
You rock big time.

CREAM OF BLOGGING
1)Self expression and feedback
2)Reading other blogs give us "food for thought"

SCUM OF BLOGGING

1)Misuse of blogging
2)Abuse of others
3)Its an addiction.

Cheers and thanks for visiting my blog. Do visit again.
