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.
Oh wow. Amazing how sayings travelled, even decades ago.

This is a good recipe, I swap oil for lard however as fat retains moisture better making the bread softer.
