5 analogies about what bloggers say

Hugh Mcleod has posted this great illustration depicting the most prevalent style of discussion among bloggers, namely, regurgitation.

This style is especially popular among link bloggers, ‘filler’ bloggers who love to keep their blog active and do that using snippets from their RSS reader.

The fiftieth blog in a spam blog network also displays this same habit.

Other images that come to mind about the nature of discussion among bloggers are:

1. Little Miss Red Riding Hood: you right one innocent post and gets tones of rants and abuses.
2. Little Miss Red Riding Hood goes to Digg: you post a link or a comment and witness the madness of the crowd in action.
3. Eight blind men and the elephant: Different people have a different take on a particular issue.
4. The Courtiers: Paid and unpaid followers of big name brands who troll the web looking for any one who dares to call their master’s bluff.
5. The Pied Piper: One blogger hypes up things and others follow him to their doom.

I am sure there are more.
