A Blog Post

And after what seems like decades and centuries of blogging on this blog in that Internet web 2.0 social media user generated content era of technology and inventions, I find myself encountering what seems like blah blog bloggers writers block again as I ask myself, “What do I blah blog about today on this bloggers blog out there in the bloggersworld of a bazallion other blogs?” And sometimes it seems as if I could use one of those Internet gurus to help solve this debacle of finding and maintain content for this blog for some reason. And maybe I could consider hiring one of those Craigslist interns in the writers wanted section, or maybe I could ask a thousand other people to help me maintain this blog. Or maybe I could consult one of those online tutorials about “How to maintain your blog” somewhere out there in the internetland world. Is there a way to magically find content for this blog? And that seems like it could be one of those blogger guru internet questions to be answered to me. And what if I do not post on this blog again for blogger burnout or some other reason and it remains postless. And what’s the purpose or reason for having a blog again, I forget sometimes. And so I find myself posting one of these posts on this blog again on this day that really seems to be about blogging. Have a great blogging day.

PostieCon Conference

And now for some reason, I have started to notice, conferences, conventions, and more conferences. The bloggerworld blogosphere seems to be spawning tons of different blogging related conferences now, maybe. How exciting. There seems to be a few blogger conventions coming up in Vegas, so many that between the Blog World Expo and PostieCon blog conference, one could just move to Vegas for the next few months and Vegas blog conference, convention, party and casino gamble away in between speakers and panel discussions. And good luck if that blogger conference is held in the same hotel with one of those casinos in the lobby. The following is an announcement for the Pay Per Post PostieCon conference in Vegas. Pay Per Post is the Hollywood of pay per post companies to me and I hear money falling out of the sky when I hear their name. Pay Per Post Rocks. Viva Las Vegas.

PostieCon ’07 is a one-day event that will be held November 10, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. PostieCon Vegas is a one-of-a-kind blog conference hosted by PayPerPost™. The one-day conference will include targeted sessions focusing on helping bloggers market themselves and leverage the PayPerPost™ platform. Experienced bloggers will share their knowledge of how you can build traffic and readership, and how to effectively monetize your voice. Top PayPerPost™ earners and advertisers will share their successes in two unique sessions. CEO Ted Murphy will also lead a special session for PayPerPost™ advertisers. The day will end with a rockin’ party where winners of the Blogger’s Choice Awards will be recognized!
The most exciting news of all: PostieCon Vegas is FREE! Space is limited, though, so to ensure your spot you’ll need to register.

Who’s Reading This?

As a blogger I have read to be careful and aware of what you write because someone may be reading it. I’ve read that if a blogger is blogging to make money online that there are certain rules and requirements for writing opportunities that a blogger should follow; writing content must be unique, a blogger must not copy someone else’s content and writers should try and keep a positive tone. And in a whole another ball field and just as interestng and scary, I read this BBC News article yesterday, “Bloggers’ search for anonymity”, the internet has given the individual unprecedented power to reach out to millions but some governments are cautious, even hostile, to giving their citizens free access to ideas they deem too democratic and dangerous. Big Brother is watching you again. And what if I write the phrase “Down With Big Brother” criticizing the government in this blog entry? Will someone from the government come and arrest me while I am in class taking an exam? Well, according to the BBC News article, that’s exactly what happened in Syria. In Cuba, Egypt and Tunisia, they all censor and even lock up journalists and bloggers. And who, what publishers will be exempt from this? Is this thought crime at work in George Orwells 1984 novel? This is why the media rights group, Reporters Without Borders, has published The Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents. It’s pretty technical but it also contains some simple tips, so you can say what you think without having to worry the censors or cyber-police too much. Here is a great quote: In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, but, by that time, no one was left to speak up. Martin Niemoeller, Pastor (1892-1984). First it was them, and then it was me. Whose gonna be left when big brother comes? And what does this have to do with a No Police State? I have added a sitemeter visitor counter to this site today at the very bottom of the page because I am not even sure how may people are visiting this page myself. It’s Sunday again. Why am I blogging today, it’s supposed to be a day of rest. Have a great day.
