For all y'all that were looking for drama in my last post, I can happily announce to you that it seems you are going to get it after all, and this is completely not my own doing, as you all brought it yourselves with your comments. So, Toinlicious, bring back your seat, things are turning out to be interesting after all. And everyone, please, leave Toinlicious and her seat, there are many seats in this cinema of mine. I am sure you know that when I started the 'How I see Nigerian Blogsville' series, I did not know it would take this turn. Don't worry, it is just friendly banter, so please, let us keep it friendly.
If you have not read the first two parts of this post, I advise that you read them here and here before going on, and I am sure you will agree with me that my hand is not in this drama. I was just writing, as my blog title states.
Some people commented in my last post that word-pressers feel they are all that. Well, you have met your match, in fact, more than your match as they think we bloggers users are backward, ignorant, not technologically advanced, etc. They are also ready for war, looooollllll. So you all that want to fight, get out your swords if you live in the eras on the 1600s, and your grenade if you live in this present century. But one thing is sure, I am the blog coward that won't be found anywhere.
Olatoxic, who is my close friend in real life, but definitely not in blogsville, is the word-presser I spoke about in this post, who detests blogger, visiting it, and everything about it. He has taken time to reply some of you who returned his sentiments. He climbed the podium, and took the mic, and declared war. The thing is that I am so surprised he saw my blogger post, and even took time to comment, after his declaration of blogger hate. I guess blogger was just too sweet for him to stay away from at this point in time.
Here is what he had to say
*zooms in* #TeamWordpress FOR LIFE!!! *tears singlet and brandishes war paint*
Oh, it looks like I'm a one man army... *jejely wears new cloth and proceeds to climb stage like a gentleman*
*knacks mic and clears throat* Hello there, my fellow bloggers. I speak for the wordpress side of our dearly beloved artform. I think it's sad that you guys cannot see the light. Your platform is clunky and difficult to use. Why do I have to have a blogger account to EASILY post a comment on here? Be doing eyetest for me everytime I want to comment. -____- And have you any idea how hard it was to read your blogposts on my curve2 browser? It was so frustrating that I gave up on it even after I stepped up to an android phone a while ago. You see, it's really pathetic that blogger doesn't have a sensible mobile web platform even at the end of 2012. Neanderthal!
Also, do you know why we don't SEEM to have a community as such on wordpress? Obviously not. Let me help your (for lack of a better word)... ignorance: "Wordpressers" are almost all on twitter as well. That's where we do all the bonding and fighting and camaraderie-ing. You see, we've learned how to work both platforms for optimum exposure and 'benefitability'. WIN-WIN!! So yes, we do bond and fight too, we just keep all that 'pettiness' away from our blogs where we can focus on the actual art of writing/blogging while we keep all our 'silliness' on twitter.
Oh, another thing, I subscribe to a few blogger sites directly through my email... and I receive the posts in my inbox 24hrs later! Like, wharraheck?! Where's the sense in being alerted about a post the day after it was published?! Do you bother with yesterday's newspaper when there's today's to read? Rabbish and nonsense. Mscheeeeeww!!
Abeg, I dey go paddle my kayak go back wordpress jarey. I for done subscribe to comments so that when you people reply me, I can receive it instantly in my inbox but... Oh look, blogger is not that advanced yet. Oh bugger.
ps For those of you so concerned about not having your pictures up on your wordpress comments, if you were any technologically advanced, you'd know that you could use your twitter, facebook or even blogger acct while commenting and your avatar from any of those accts would show up, with the link to that profile attached too.
pps @ilola, I'm incensed that you did not credit me in your post. We are now fighting. I demand an apology and atonement for your sins. 3-|
pps I bear no grudge towards you blogger bloggers (see how rubbish that sounded?) and your backward ways, the vexed tone of this comment was purely for purposes of mirth. I do not take responsibility for any one of you who do not possess a real sense of humour.
*bows and exits stage left*
I am sorry Olatoxic for not crediting you in the post. I never knew you would even read a blogger post, talk less of commenting. I was trying as much not to stain your wordpress pure blood (Harry Potter things) by mentioning your name on blogger, as we are too far beneath for you, since it won't do your wordpress status any good. And just so you know, I use my blogger account to comment on wordpress posts, yet my picture still doesn't show.
Blogger users, I hope you notice that they said it is our ignorance that makes us build a strong community, such that we bond and fight on blogger, instead of doing it on other platforms. It sounds to me like Olatoxic is trying to justify the lack of community love of word-pressers, like we have on blogger. Lol
So bloggers, let us know. Are we really these adjectives way word-pressers have described us to be?
P.S: This blog is a hate-free zone. So let us try to keep our comments non-volatile and jovial, as we all know that that is what Olatoxic's comment is.
