As I chatted “boasted” about my status on Twitter the other day, and decided to update my status “sell my blog”, I thought about Diva-esque behaviour among bloggers.
Indeed I am guilty of Diva like behaviour on occasion, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity that it gave me to list my 10 favourite online Diva behaviours.
I am not telling you which ones I am guilty of, now that would be telling…..
Here is the quickest way to be a fashionable blogging Diva.
- Blogging – expect people to read your blog and comment on it, but never read or comment on anyone else’s blog – unless they are a celebrity or a PR that can send you nice goodies.
- Blogging – only do product reviews and sales pitches because you are so awesome that nobody else deserves to know anything about you.
- Blogging – complain about free services that you don’t have to use when you don’t get high enough ratings.
- Blogging – complain about how few people are commenting on your blog, but you get high reader stats – they are obviously in too much awe of you to leave a comment.
- Blogging – pretend that you don’t blog for statistics or readers and that you only blog for yourself – a private diary is just soo old hat.
- Twitter – haughtily take the hump if anyone unfollows you.
- Twitter – commonly unfollow everyone that has a different opinion to you, and take the hump when they dare to ask why so you can get the sympathy vote with your own followers.
- Twitter – often complain when people ask you to follow them back. Twitter is nearly a one way street to a good Diva.
- Twitter – don’t reply to everyone who @mentions or @directmessages you. Celebrity “Divas” cherry pick replies for good effect
- Twitter – celebrity name drop and try to win status by pretending to have status – it might rub off on you.
I love the Divas, it makes our circle complete. Which Divaesque behaviours are your favourites? What do you think? Feel free to add ones I’ve missed below.
