Let’s step on the brakes with the food reviews for a while so I can write an update post.
I’m back on track just 13 months after my old smartphone got ruined, with a new phone making the recent spate of reviews possible. It’s not exactly the best model with only a 5 megapixel camera to boot—but it does the job when the situation calls for discreet photography. The most difficult part of writing a restaurant review is taking pictures of the interiors. Some places aren’t exactly welcoming when it comes to taking snapshots while others do not mind at all and even encourage patrons to do so.
I’ve also rehashed the Blog Policy section. It’s common knowledge that an overwhelming majority of today’s readers do not understand entire passages of text and only have a comprehension limited to the 140 characters permitted on Twitter. What are the revisions, you may ask?
- I’m softening my stance on possible PR collaborations, but that doesn’t mean I’ll completely bend over. (#10 and #11)
- I’ve also made it clear for the Nth time that foreigners aren’t welcome here. (#14 and #15)
- However, I’m also exempting fellow Southeast Asian bloggers from the above rule. (#16)
“But Monch, does that mean you’ve turned your back on what you stood for?”
Not at all! I’m opening the door to future collaborations, but I still have the final say on things. My blog, my rules, my editorial decisions. Besides, who likes one-sided deals that clearly put you in a disadvantaged position? Maybe you do, but not me.
“Wow, where do you get the tenacity to shoo foreign bloggers off your site?”
Let’s face it: most of the bloggers here on WordPress are either ignorant Indians, tactless African-Americans, or Caucasian female travelers or beauty junkies that only follow you to rack up their numbers, which do not matter to me at all. How do you see them interact, if you may ask me? Leaving nonsensical comments just to promote their blogs anywhere—even in a serious post written in a language they do not understand at all! Promoting a blog in a serious post is utter tastelessness, if not stupidity. Is this the method most marketing gurus teach?
And a final message: I’m no beta male you can dupe into following and liking all your posts. Let’s not waste each other’s time since the possibility of us meeting in real life is nil. You’re not getting anything from me if I’m not getting anything from you. So, away with your thottery and begone from my sight!
(P.S. You don’t need to worry if you’re from Southeast Asia. #16 takes care of that. Besides, look at the number of Southeast Asian bloggers in most of my entries.)
Alright, moving on. Expect more new posts from me in the next couple of days. And to those people who have returned to blogging after so long, welcome back!
