Blogs, Blogs, and More Blogs

Posted on 03/24/2011 1:51:29 PM PDT by HungarianGypsy

As I was skimming posts on here, I noticed the many complaints about blog pimps. My own blog is not at all political, so breathe a sigh of relief, you won't see me posting any articles on here from it. :)

But, sometimes when I get a down moment, I like to see what others have written.

So, if you have a blog, feel free to post your link and what it's about here.

Blogs are not the problem. It’s bloggers needlessly excerpting their blog articles to get blog hits that is the problem. FR is not meant to be a free advertising platform. Blog articles are fine if posted in full. :-)

I don't know if I speak for anyone else but it's not people posting content from their blogs, it's they excerpt the post just to get blog hits.

More hits equals more advertising impressions and bucks for the blog pimp.

More posts equals more backlinks which means better google ranking which means more hits and more advertising impressions.

If these folk have something important to say post the entire thing.

Why, thank you. I had been wondering if I had passive aggressive qualities, lately. ;)

What we need is a dedicated thread for FReepers to post links to their blogs!

http://tyrannysentinel.blogspot.com

It will attract the blogpimps like flies to syrup.

http://tyrannysentinel.blogspot.com

Every other line will be a link to someone’s blog!

http://tyrannysentinel.blogspot.com

Blogpimping is frowned upon on Free Republic! If you truly must post something from your blog, post the entire article.

http://tyrannysentinel.blogspot.com

If you are just doing it to get a link in people’s faces, then do not do it.

http://tyrannysentinel.blogspot.com

So thems is the rules, and you had better pay attention, you blogpimps!

The way appropriate blog posting is generally done is that Bloggers post full copy articles - not excerpts - in the bloggers forum. Posting in the wrong forum (News/Activism) or posting excerpts of your own blog and driving people away from the FR site is considered blog pimping and is severely frowned upon around here.

Jim Robinson, owner of Free Republic, on Bloggers:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2636843/posts?q=1&;page=501

“I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog.”

A word to the wise is generally sufficient. We don't want to drive good conservative thought off of FR. But we need to fight a recent surge of people using FR as a launching pad for click-through marketing attacks. This kind of abuse is unfair to our volunteer donors that keep FreeRepublic.com running.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

I like to see blogs, too.

Preferably posted in their entirety here, so that it doesn't appear that the blogger is using FR to fish for hits.

There are some well-written blogs out there.

If the bloggers don't pimp them here, instead posting the whole article for our perusal, I'm much more inclined to visit their sites.

You should post anything you please from your blog. Just don’t post enough of it to be a “teaser” to get people to hit your blog...that’s Blog Pimping.

Perfectly understood. I really just posted this, because I have an interest in the different kinds of blogs other Freepers have. The pimping subjects just reminded me of it. :)

I don't have a blog, so I'm going to sing for you.

OK...

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.

{overdone huskiness} Teardrops rolling down on my face,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.

Feeeeeelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I'd never met you, girl;
You'll never come again.

Feelings, {yodeling excrutiatingly} wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, {exaggerated emotion} feel you again in my arms.
Feeeeelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feeling like I'll never have you
Again in my heart.

{hyped-up crescendo} Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I'd never met you, girl;
You'll never come again.

Feeeeelings, feeling like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you
Again in my life.

Feelings, wo-o-o feeeeeelings,
Wo-o-o, feeeeeelings again in my aaaaaarms.....

“Hey there brutha!
Who you jivin’ with that Kozmik Debris?”

The problems with blogs and blogpimps here at FR fall into a couple of catagories, some more serious than others. The ones I’m concerned about...

** Blogpimps who sign up here today and post a one sentence excerpt from their brand new blog that says nothing more important than the average post in a similar thread at FR.

** Blogpimps who sign up here today, and post a one sentence excerpt from their brand new blog that they cut and pasted word for word from a legitimate (and copyrighted) news source.

** Same as above, only with copyrighted pictures from legitimate sources with no proper attribution for that picture.

** Same as above, only they post an article here in Breaking News with what looks like a legitimate link, only it is back to their site where they cut and pasted legitimate breaking news from AP.

** Blogpimps who do the above over and over and over again using lame variations on the same old themes.

Some of the blogpimps are merely amateurish and annoying. Some are disturbingly persistent and if one pays attention to them you start to see posting patterns with some and its clear we’re dealing with the same damned person over and over again.

Some people have no other life than what they fantasize about online, or cannot gainfully occupy themselves other than by disrupting websites like Free Republic. Others still are maliciously trying to pimp hits to their site where they have all manner of click-and-contaminate phishware and links to God knows what else.

We have seen it all here at FR, and many of us are sick and tired of the nonstop assault on the senses from some of the usual suspects. Many of them have absolutely nothing to say and are desperately trying to get any kind of attention on the intarwebs, especially so they can Tweet, Twitter, Facebook, or otherwise show it off to all of their pathetic little friends.

Does that about cover it for you??
