The Pretense of Pointless Blogs

Blog Posted:8/11/2017 4:25:00 PM

Open forum to write what you will about pointless blogs. Please bear in mind that NO rude or insincere comments will remain.  I'm curious about what others think about posting a blog that seems meaningless, and/or prohibits comments. Yes, I know that is permitted by PS, but really, what's the point of that? If there's something worth writing, it should be worthy of having others express their opinions.

Methinks that as long as a blog exists, there's a point that the blogger wants us to see. Most of the time we might see some blogs having comments cut offs, but if we look deeper, there's a silent message by the blogger, intentional or not intentional.

i don't understand why a blogger would not want feedback... isn't a message for all a sign that the writer would enjoy some sense of reciprocity?... hmm, lin.. hugggs

That's my way of thinking, nette. I enjoy reading the opinions of other poets as well as their comments on my poems. Communication is a good way to interact and get to know each other. Thanks a lot for offering your point of view.

Continued from below Currently as I did with my initial blogs in 2007 thru 2010 I am into a daily blog series that hopefully will add value to PS.Good blog discussion you have facilitated Lin.

Lin,As a prolific blogger here for a decade or so I hesitated to join in this discussion.When you create a blog the header says ' Blogs can only be used for poetry and writing related posts, or positive content. Public venting is NOT allowed'. I suppose as long as a blog conforms to these criteria( and all of the other PS requirements thereto) then seemingly 'pointless' or otherwise becomes a matter of viewpoint and choice whether we read it. That said ,with me ,I blog in the hope that the poetry topics are of interest ,and are read ,whether or not they receive comments is a bonus.

Brian, yes, all here is a matter of viewpoint. Seems to me that the "rules" err widely on the side of "safety" or "trying not to offend anyone, regardless of cost." It's aiming at the lowest common denominator. Ah well...

I'm sorry you hesitated at all, Brian. All poets on the site are welcome to join in, and as a respected poet, I'm glad you've now written your views. I stated up front that no rude or insincere comments would remain, and I did have to eliminate the comments of one person in order to hold true to that. I don't always comment on your blogs, but I do read them. Thanks for joining the blog.
Date: 8/14/2017 9:07:00 AM
Lin, to me the purpose of a blog is back and forth communication, when comments are turned off that defeats the purpose and is just pointless, yes information is given but no questions can be asked, as for receiving nasty replies well is that not why we were given the delete ability on blogs and there is always block, so I just don't see the point of a blog with no commenting, just my opinion, it is not my intent to insult anyone, its just that it makes no sense.

Thanks for your thoughts, Constace. I don't think any comment made on this blog has given anyone reason to feel they've been insulted. I asked for opinions and I received many that were varied. Several issues were discussed in a mature manner and by respected members of the PS community.
Date: 8/14/2017 8:53:00 AM
"Pointless" blogs - there won't be general agreement, because there is such a wide range (naturally) in the philosophies of all the people here. I'm all for discussion, and the ability to delete posts really does not seem right to me - I think much more is lost than is gained there. Just my opinion, though, and we're not all going to agree even on what blogs are 'pointless' or not.

Hi Doug, and we don't all have to agree on what is pointless to us. I appreciated reading everyone's opinions.
Date: 8/14/2017 8:11:00 AM
Wordpress blogs do not automatically upload comments. Comments can be selected to be included on the blog or deleted before anyone but the blog's author reads them. Poetrysoup is not a blog site, but it does allow us to have a blog, and therefore it does not have all the bells and whistles of sites which were created for blogging. I couldn't care less if someone chooses to shut off comments, as long as the blog is not directed at specific Soupers and is just a "thinking about this..." type of blog. As long as a blog is not a direct attack on a member, then members can choose to just ignore them (it's actually quite easy ... unless you care about the opinion.)

Thanks for joining in with your viewpoints, Cyndi. I was interested in opinions other than whether or not blogs are closed to comments. I don't care that PS makes that an option, or that people do it, but I thought I'd take a moment to see what others thought about blogs that are more like a diary on very personal levels.

It's my personal opinion that blogs are more fun and productive if they are open to comments. And with the new feature of being able to delete comments that are rude or off-topic, there really should be no reason to disable comments now. Having said that... I still believe, to each his own.

Date: 8/12/2017 8:57:00 AM
I think (but I could be wrong) that our resident mute blogger has very set views on things and that always invites equally strongly held views in response which can lead to fireworks. I'm guessing that's why (enter female pronoun here) "announces" rather than posts a topic for discussion. It's a bit like when an immovable object meets an irrestistible force! I agree a blog without comments is a nonsense but life is full of peculiarities! I should know - I'm one!

I would say generally speaking there is a little bit of arrogance when you expect someone to read what you have written and not expect comments. In a way I feel it is a selfish act. Now on the other hand if this writer has been maligned by a comment in the past, I can understand and accept their choice of not having comments. So like I stated it depends on the reason why and most time were not privy to know why they are acting in that manner. Thanks for posting Lin...

You're very welcome, Michael. It's a post to allow opinions and yours are welcome.
Date: 8/12/2017 8:17:00 AM
My personal opinion is not to hurt anyone with my opinion and anyone can disagree with it and that's ok. First I want to state that if someone doesn't want a response that's ok. Or if someone wants to blog whatever that is ok to, What someone might consider pointless that individual might not. Now when someone doesn't want an opinion, I ask myself why? What is the motive behind it, For example are they afraid of a comment that they might not be able to tolerate. Have they been hurt before by someone else's comment or are they making an egotistical statement that they selfishly don't care what you think. To me the reason why is more important than the act. We have a choice of not reading it.

There is no pretense; a blogger has a point and relates it. Whether they want discussion or not is their prerogative though it can be somewhat odd that one posts and then does not wish for discussion. I put it down to eccentricity and move on. There was one blog addressed to me very clearly as I had written a poem for a contest..I could've sent mail to explain but it wasn't something I was bothered too much about. Therein lies art...we take it or leave it; no big deal...unless of course one is paying millions for it, in which case, I tend to think one is just bonkers and has nothing better to do with too much money...I ramble; something i like to do on blogs..pointless perhaps to you.. :)

Ramble on all you like, taai, and I don't find your opinions pointless at all. A blogger must first make a point that can be understood if he/she does not allow comments. The person who wrote a blog addressed to you is a good example of being just that, when it could've been dealt with through private mail. I agree with you on the idea of eccentricity. Thanks for stating your views.
Date: 8/12/2017 12:10:00 AM
I love blogs with comments cut off. Who made the rule that they must be open for discussion. A true open community attracts and supports all type of freedoms, including the closed blog. Judge not... Blah blah. I encourage everyone to blog or comment as they see fit.

No one said there is a rule that blogs must be open for discussion. This one is not focused on judging anyone but merely to voice opinions, as you just did. The first two words clearly read, "Open forum." Even if "blah blah" is your opinion, you were able to take part.

Hi, I've posted blogs before where I've disabled comments, for reasons, one being that it was more of an announcement, or just a thought, and I didn't want anyone to feel obligated to "support" my blog when there is really nothing to discuss. I guess I don't really feel like these are real blogs here, this is more like a spot where we can share our thoughts or announcements about a contest, or whatever, (and every once in a blue moon someone might blog a topic related to poetry discussion) But it's up to the person posting, if they want a discussion or not, and it's up to each of us if we decide to click on those blogs that we know don't allow discussion. We can choose to click and read what they have to say, or we can choose to ignore it. I don't know, I guess I kind of understand your frustration, it can be a little frustrating to not be able to comment. But it doesn't really bother me now, I just read it and move on :) Have an awesome weekend y'all.

We can share our thoughts in our own blog without feeling obligated to open it up for discussion, and this is not necessarily "pretense" or pointless, it's just different. This is the point I was trying to make.

Announcements can be useful to a community and therefore have a point. Your comment states in part, "this is more like a spot where we can share our thoughts..." The key word there is 'share.' I'm not frustrated or bothered at all by the blogs, just interested in opinions.
Date: 8/11/2017 5:46:00 PM
Post and then wait for engaging discussion. Isn't that what this function is for?? Used to blog but discussions take off in such unexpected directions, simply gave up posting. An evocative topic here, LL. :-)))
