The following mostly applies to the contemporary Sinhala Blogosphere, but if your blogging community is something like this, watch out. The Emo Bloggers are coming.
Write some seemingly controversial post about sex, sex in the bus, or some shit that will create a small disturbance in the crowd.
If you’re a female, bash men and their sex-addicted nature. Wait till the horde of male readers hit your post who would counter your argument but only would do so to get your attention.
Counter their counter-arguments, this time be a little aggressive.
Counter-argument makers will become more aggressive.
Turn that in to an all out war against specific targets. Get your whole family in if you have to. It’s gonna get “Dr. Strangelove” all over again.
Break down, and blame the flamers for ruining your life and threaten them with suicide.
Close your blog, restrict it to few selected users who would definitely let the others know that they are in your little circle.
Put suicidal notes in online communities like Facebook or Twitter for everyone to see. Watch the male readers trying to calm you down, telling you not to do anything stupid. Female readers who like to appear as sensitive saint-like characters will also do the same.
Claim you’re giving up blogging forever.
Whatever you do do NOT commit suicide. It’s just a publicity stunt.
Wait for few days, check email for pleas to open up the blog. Don’t be surprised if no one has given a single fuck. This routine would probably fix that up.
Do NOT keep the blog closed for more than a week, 10 days maximum.
Open up the blog claiming it is only because your best friends pleaded and threatened you with suicide themselves, that you’re doing so.
Wait and see if anyone has given a fuck about your post. Chances are that no one even noticed it fully.
Go to the posts that female bloggers have written about sex, sex in the bus or some other seemingly controversial shit and comment in them trying to look like you’re the cool stud who would carefully do the whole sex in the bus thing with utmost control.
With the outbreak of the Who-Is-Looking-More-Like-Casanova-In-The-Blogosphere war you will surely get your share of profit.
After some days in to the war, write a post trying to calm people down, act out the whole Hippie “World Peace” drama for additional bonuses.
Whatever the hell that you think blogging is, it should not be the above. At least let us save the kids.
