Comments on “Omy’s S’pore Blog Awards, Doomed to Fail? [socialmediasg]”

Read through the entry, taste is one of the main factors, not only the judges’, in my humble opinion ... but also the bloggers from socialmediasg. So the situation is ... what's the point of having views in the first place. And somehow the entry stated has not got much things to substantiate the arguments (good or bad in detail about the finalists), so they have to “curry flavours” the judging criteria. Well done! Let's see their next move ... after the winners announced!

Comments on "The War Between Bloggers [socialmediasg]"

This entry is to comment on

Not only the posting is entertaining (of course the person involved sure think otherwise), more importantly the same words same sentences could be interpreted differently (or two extreme opposite poles) if we read further the comments posted by other bloggers.

Hi bloggers, if all these are not life and death issues, why not just spent 1 or 2 days of quality time (non-blogging) and back to reread what you have posted. You’ll laugh at yourself for being so serious.

Obviously if we still have the “feel” after quality time, perhaps then do spend 1 or 2 days of quality time to blog (before that, take one to three deep breaths) as objective as we can.

Oh yes, non-action is one type of action.
