There is a certain psychological aspect to blogging which I find interesting. It would be quite easy to write in a reporter style or as an unengaged author. A take it or leave it approach. A blogger loses credibility when engaging people like Cotton, Tamino or other trolls. It is a no win situation for them. Even when the blogger is right, all it does is drag down the anonymity of the personality. I never cared either way — still don’t.
Imagine though what sort of internet personality you could build, if you had the intent. What if you were trying to build a bigger than real life personality on line and your own opinions were subservient to that goal. It has an appeal from a narcissistic aspect, and it really could do a lot of good for your ’cause’. Done right, a large slice of the population would buy in.
A balance of push and pull with a definite edge toward anarchy. Credibility maintained through lack of engagement and a bit of scorn. How easy would it be? I fully believe I could make it work —— were I of the mind to. Easy as pie.
What if you were paid to do it? Would you? Would anyone? What if the income were six figures?
