I’m jumping on a bandwagon. I’ve read a few of the “You Might Be A…” lists lately and have gotten a chuckle from them. Or some of them anyways. Jollyblogger tells us how to know you’re a Presbyterian, Semper Reformada tells us 10 Reasons Why She’s a Calvinist and Tim Irvin tells us that you may just be a BMAA Baptist if….
So here is my humble attempt. Here is how to know that you’re new to the blogosphere:
- You have links on your site to Blogshares and BlogExplosion and think these will actually drive traffic your way.
- You are a member of more than three aggregators.
- A word count on your blogroll turns up a higher number of words than in every article you’ve written.
- You think that Michael Spencer is a Calvinist (sorry Michael!).
- You think a link from Boarsheadtavern is necessarily an endorsement of the quality of your writing (I’ll stop now).
- You think that the number of comments on a site somehow correlates to the quality of the author’s commentary.
- All your comments and trackbacks are from friends you didn’t know you had inviting you to play poker.
- You actually care what character from Napoleon Dynamite you most resemble or what vegetable you’d be (if you were a vegetable, which you may just be if you enjoy memes this much).
- You think that writing good articles will make you a popular blogger. (I’ll let you in on the secret. The fact is that you have to be either famous, contentious, or Phil Johnson to make people notice you.)
- You still believe that just because you can find some readers that agree with you it means you are right.
