The Artist Versus The Blogger 
This comparison is based on myself so maybe other bloggers and artists don't think this way. I think sometimes I'm more of a blogger than an artist and sometimes it's the other away around. Which side are you on or are you both? And who did you think created this chart? The artist or the blogger? (Click on the image for a larger view.)

April A-Z : Unpopular Since 2006

Unpopular Since 2006

Unpopular : a title I happily accepted and easily ignored but it often shows up when I think it's gone forever...
— According to me

Every April I celebrate the month that I started blogging by making two lists. This one is called 'Unpopular Since 2006' or this other title, 'My lazy blogging ways':

01/ Be unsociable: Skip out on all social networking - this includes Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and whatever other media that usually drives you to insanely tap the keys of your multifunctional phone just to keep up.

02/ Move a lot: repeatedly move to new url's to start fresh even if you lose a lot of readers and maybe even a little bit of your security of being in the same place.

03/ Be unconventional: Follow blogs through the most unconventional way - by going to their blog and reading it.

04/ Lose confidently: Don't bother chasing back the readers that have left you. They're gone and probably won't return unless they happen to find you again accidentally.

05/ Forget you have a blog: Don't try to remember what your brain wants to forget but occasionally, you will remember your blog and perhaps you will post something there.

06/ Refuse to conform: Post things nobody cares about or have any interest in but you.

07/ Answer only if you want to: Reply to questions/comments if and when you feel like it.

08/ Be nosy: Ask questions that may or may not drive people crazy. You may make a friend or an enemy, in which case, you'll probably want to move to a new url or perhaps get witness protection.

09/ Keep things long: Post long posts that somehow doesn't get read.

10/ Post at irregular times and sometimes not all: Only post when you want to or when you suddenly remember you have a blog.

What do you do that makes you & your blog unpopular?


Note: This list is updated from the 2016 list which had been updated from the 2013 lists which apparently wasn't updated from any previous list that I can find but probably did come from somewhere.
