Famous Blokeisms (Blog Bloke Quotes) Part 1

Yes my friends I am that lovable bloke who shoots from the hip.

But seriously one thing that I like about Twitter is it forces us to condense our thoughts down to a few characters. That makes it a perfect medium for creating quotes.

Over the years I have created a quote or two (otherwise known as Blokeisms), and instead of letting it disappear into the twittersphere I thought it would be smart to list them here. That way I will get credit. (Ya know what I mean.)

So here they are listed below in all their glory. I hope you enjoy them. Just remember my tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. (I know, it doesn’t always translate well in the written word.)

Here goes:

  1. If you want engagement then be engaging.
  2. Let’s face it. When it comes to choosing between reality and blowing smoke .. the smokers win every time.
  3. The most successful people in life tend to be the ones who learn to manipulate the best. Unfortunately they can also be the most unethical.
  4. The need to feel constantly connected through technology is an emotional dependency and should be treated like any other disorder.
  5. When you are pretending to be an “expert” only a phony would outsource.
  6. Is it asking too much? We need politicians driven by ethics and common sense. Not by political agenda and feathering their nests.
  7. I’m making changes in my life. Stop wasting time with insincere people who take but give nothing back. Words without action mean nothing.
  8. First and foremost Google is an advertising company that caters to marketers. ‘Original‘ content? Who cares so long as it’s ‘content’.
  9. Being a good blogger is more than just being a good writer. It is also wearing many hats, including being a techy.
  10. Any of those who claim to be making money I always ask for proof. None so far have bothered.
  11. When you are trying to build authority in the SERPS don’t take shortcuts. Be ethical and think the Long Tail.
  12. I would say most exaggerate incomes from blogging. In fact most of the bloggers that I know make it from other sources.
  13. Another week of chasing a buck. Trying to be fab. Wooing followers and generally BSing our way through it all. Let the games begin!
  14. Working hard only goes so far. Another well known euphemism is it’s not always what you know .. it’s who you know. Colloquially speaking, it’s more familiarly known as brown-nosing.
  15. Without exception everyone with a large follower list has either leveraged off some affiliation with another person, business, association, or cheated (buying followers).
  16. Personal attacks just for the sake of hurting someone is being a #troll. Intelligent, erudite, tongue-in-cheek humour is acceptable. Valid, constructive criticism is not being a troll. “Valid” and “constructive” being the keywords.

There are plenty more where those come from. So please stay tuned for part 2.
