Have you ever blogged under the influence? With lap tops and mobile internet services, intoxicated blogging is possible anywhere any time. At home, on the beach or even from the local pub. And it’s so easy. And by blogging I mean even posting comments. Actually BUI could explain a few posts I’ve read of late. And some comments I see here and in other areas …………….
Anyway, I guess there’s no sure way of knowing a drunken post. After all blogosphere is not an English exam and people are free to use whatever language they wish without having anybody to approve of it. Wrong grammar and disjointed stuff can therefore not be used as an indicator that the person is Blogging Under the Influence. Unless the article starts all nice and proper and degenerates into incoherent blabber as time goes by or your readers know you well and they can sense a sharp difference in your style. But then again you could just have decided to use a different style.
A little bird told me that while blogging under the influence, one gets funnier and typing becomes easier and faster as the drink goes by. I wouldn’t know that because already my typing is easier and faster. The same bird told me that there’s a site for drunken bloggers but being a responsible citizen I’m not about to lead my readers to drunken sites.
No I don’t blog under the influence although someone thought I was high when I did this article. But it’s just an ordinary post surely? There are some blog commandments somewhere. Maybe we should add Thou Shalt Not Blog Under the Influence? My E-friend too has been suspected of this E-crime but I doubt she’s guilty. Practicing Chinglish is guaranteed to make one sound high.
Blog on – sober or drunk. It’s not a punishable crime. If you can still organize your thoughts and ideas into a post then you’re not drunk enough. BUI will probably not do you much harm unless you go as far as posting compromising videos of yourself and
