A couple of days ago, a friend and I were talking about blogs and how it has changed over the years. She sent me a link and said that it was her friend’s and that this chick is just one of the more popular blogger in recent times. But you can just about guess what are the reasons chicks become popular bloggers these days.Â
I mean I’ve seen enough blogs that become ‘famous’ just because there’s a hot girl strutting about with photos of herself plastered all over their blogs. Like 80% of the picture is of her face and her body, and maybe like a puny 20% is of the background of wherever that she is at.Â
I immediately clicked the ‘x’ button after scrolling through. There was NO content, only like photos of herself, a few inanimate objects around her, two or three words simply strung up to form a caption for one or two of the photos. And there you have it, a popular blog.
LIKE SERIOUSLY WTF?!
To top it off, my friend told me that this particular girl actually thought about quitting school and going on to become a full time blogger and maybe do more event stints. You know, those car modelling/umbrella girl crap. I shit you not, with two or three words for sentences, yes I’m pretty sure you’ll have a stellar blogging career.Â
I have no issues with beautiful women who can engage you in their blogs. With their words, not with their boobs and big eyes combo. It makes you envy these women because they have the best of both worlds but when there’s no substance in your blog only photos of yourself knowing clearly well that you’re sizzling, and THEN have the audacity to consider a career in blogging full time, ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?! If you finish school already and don’t quite know what to do yet also not too bad lah. But are you mad ah? If your writing isn’t even good enough for a magazine to take you on as part of their contributors’ column, please just get your degree/diploma first. Don’t embarrass us womenkind with your mentality. Once you graduate and bum around, you’ll have all the time to earn those moolah, go for events and maybe read some books (if too difficult, maybe magazines also can) so you’ll learn how to structure proper sentences. At least then your blog entries are whole, you know? Not just smatterings of words and emoticons.Â
It boggles the mind that there are such bimbos around. While we’re on the topic of bimbos, are girls who work for car shows, alcohol and tobacco products actually proud of their jobs? I mean I’m all for baring skin if you have what it takes lah but to be paid to bare most of your some skin while selling things? Right, I won’t pick on those damn kesian girls who have to feed their mother, father, sister, brother, dog at home. Money is hard to come by, I get it. Any job that comes along, you’re hot, you take it. A bit of skin for food on the table, degrading but what can you do. 🙁
But what about those college girls at private institutions who just want that extra cash to go on shopping trips? Damn low la please. I’ll give my daughter two tight slaps if she dares to take on such jobs.Â
Oh right, back to little girls who can’t write and want to be full time bloggers.
As we know, there are a few full time bloggers around but these are people who have made such a name for themselves that they are practically a brand in their own right. They are involved in huge projects and… well, people actually know who they are. You know, like they have audiences that actually consist of females and males. Not just very friendly boys.
No doubt about the fact that full time bloggers do get paid rather well, which is why these little girls aspire to be full time bloggers too. Of course success stories can be repeated because OnE SHoULd DaRE To DreAm RighT?! Bloggers who manage to carve a name for themselves and thus are deemed popular are usually of the intelligent sort. If they have not already completed some form of education, they are most likely to currently be pursuing one. They have ambitions like normal people.Â
Quitting school to blog full time is just plain dumb.

Fuh! LIke this also can tsk. Btw; love your label. Ngam ngam cham cham xD!
jo: kids! pfft. 🙂 hahaha thanks… it’s for those times when i ramble too much.
agree. it’s a volatile industry this pro-blogging thing, not unlike showbiz. you dunno when you’re suddenly unpopular anymore. getting an education is the most important thing, or at least have some kinda of specialised skills. taking good photos of yourself is not a specialised skill.
jo: HAHA aptly put. imagine u go up to ur future employer and show them your portfolio and it’s all almost naked pics of urself. and then somemore never finish school. just marry rich and hope ur husband doesn’t take on seconds.
hey i gotta SOOOOO agree with you!
many blogs out there, especially most girls’, are just about themselves..
even worse, the type of pictures they upload.. it’s like so full of themselves..
those cleavage exposure, so-called cute facial expressions..
i dont like.. but i’ll still lokk thru..
sighs.. quitting school and be a full time blogger?
yeah full time blogger they may be, but will have a bad future! hmm.. =)
jo: lol why still look thru if you don’t like? Nice to see the almost visible breasts and the super innocent look on their faces right? 🙂 thanks for agreeing with me.
LOL! I wanna see the blog! >.> I can’t stand people who use chatspeak to blog, or those who can’t hit the Shift button to capitalise their sentences. 😐 Pisses me off. 😛
jo: ahahha message me on fb and i’ll send u the link la;P or links. so many of these girls. yeah man, like talk properly..!
For blogs, I mean. .____.
Nice to read some good old fashioned venting. Remember the days when just about every other blog was an openly accessible rant blog?
Jo: ahhahaha apasal u relax pulak? 🙂 Yeaaa… good old days when every blogger was an angry blogger. 😀 We were not all sunshine and smiles.
I actually was seriously considering quitting work (as in earlier this year) and completing/writing my novel and blog full time. I only entertained the thought for about half a day coz I knew I would need a full time job.
Does that make me a bimbotic blogger? T_T
Quitting work to blog (and write a novel) full time. Haha!
Jo: oh Huai Bin! You silly boy, you’re one of those who have made a name for yourself and you’ve got an engineering (or was it IT) degree to back you up. You’re at the point where you can do whatever you want in your life. Those girls shouldn’t even consider no education as a choice! Good luck on your novel man:D What’s it about?
hey Jolene! i totally agree with you… really dislike those blogs that have no substance at all. it should be called a self-centered photolog instead. how is a few words a blog??
and yeah, dont really think much of those girls who do those baring skin events on a regular basis. aihs..
jo: ahhaha ur right. self-centered blogs. gahhh.. but the boys are the ones who are contributing to their ‘fame’. See lah when age catches up with them. *bitter old lady lol*
Hey there (: First time commenting haha. I agree with you on the blogs parts.
But I have to disagree with you on this:
“But what about those college girls at private institutions who just want that extra cash to go on shopping trips? Damn low la please. Iâ€™ll give my daughter two tight slaps if she dares to take on such jobs.”
I personally take up modelling/freelance jobs now and then cuz I didn’t want to ask my parents for money just to indulge in my own shopping/spending. They are already paying for my tuition fees which is not exactly little.
How low is it for them to be more independent on their own spendings? Maybe yes, they could have chosen better jobs. But then again, it also really depends on the family no?
I would take up those jobs that I have to dress skimpily cuz before I kill myself, my family would have done that for me hahahaha. So I guess we cannot really judge so much. Moreover, I would be more impressed with a girl who pays for her own shopping using her own hard-earned money rather than asking her daddy/mummy for extra cash.
Just my two cents! (: Btw I love your stickers haha.
jo: hey there! thank you for commenting:D
Well.. modelling is fine you know, but not when you’re clearly going to be the subject of men’s lust(tiny bikinis and water splashed all over your chest as you bite on your finger tip).
Those girls who work for Maxis, Digi and stuff are very respectable. Osim etc etc. Those are event jobs as well what. I’m just talking about umbrella girls and girls who have to put on very very little clothing knowing clearly well (smacks on their head if they are too dumb to comprehend) that SEX SELLS. I wouldn’t even mind taking on those roadshow stuff if they would have me, but never for those hypertune, tobacco crap la where men oggle at girls. I mean i wouldn’t be very appetizing there… but I wouldn’t be caught dead. You think other girls won’t judge such girls? I can’t bear having my old school friends having good laugh going “OMIGOD Jolene is now an umbrella girl!” “WHAT?! How is that possible?! Aiyer..”
Yeah, it does depend on the family. Noble of the girls to find their own money..plenty of event jobs that doesn’t involve being all slutty. I especially cannot tahan their condescending looks one lor when I walk pass them. I mean yes la i know you’re hotter than me and all that but i’m not the low class one here.
And thank you for liking my stickers..:)
Lets have a Retro Party and reenact some of the blogging scenes from the early-00s. Like story telling memes, blog wars, staged blog wars, PPS…
Jo: ahahhahaha.. bring back 2005! oh i remember those staged blogwars..:D 😀 if only Shadowfox existed then. He might be able to do more.
I love this post jolene. Well said! =) It’s what every girl thinks, just that no one dares to say it out loud. Kudos to you.
I agree with girls baring skin for money. I think it’s degrading! Hello, your self worth and dignity is worth so much more than that, don’t they realize? Also those girls who bare skin just to increase their hits and be popular. I know of those blogs that become famous coz the girl takes slutty photoshoots in bras. Sigh what is the world coming to? Using the body to garner popularity and money. In the long run, they are the ones losing out. We will just stand by and watch =)
Jo: ahhaha really? every girl thinks this way?
it’s just electronic whoring. 🙂 yeap. makes for good entertainment.
i have lots to add to this but…
i shouldn’t even be here! i spent the last 40 minutes reading that nuffnang blog awards entry.
THANKS LAH. 🙁
jo: LOL..thanks for reading then..:P And good luck for tmr!!
