HELP! The reason why students blog will never go big the XIAXUE way.
However, as students, can we suceed the way XIAXUE does? The answer is a definite NO.
In Singapore, seriously we just need one xiaxue. Thats more than enough for all of us. So what is a "xiaxue"? One pretty person who shares her life and thats that. A personal blog growing to such a scale has high odds.
You may quote me dawn yang. What propelled Dawnyang to her fame today is her "beauty", while for xiaxue , her straight blatant controversial style of blogging. Different, very different.
Did you notice something that is common within the two of them? YES THEY ARE NOT STUDENTS OF ANY SORTS!
The reasons below help me reillustrate my point more clearly.
1. Student bloggers are binded to a certain institution, we should be wary of what we are blogging about. We are a representative of the institution and we should uphold its reputation.
This is one the most basic duty of all student bloggers. Call me a sucker for the authorities ass, but I consider that as a basic respect of every student bloggers. It is true that our blog belongs to us, but the blog is on the public domain, subjected to the public's criticism.
2. Student bloggers can NEVER be as flirtatious as XiaXue or Dawnyang.
The student bloggers I am refering to here are those under the age of 18. Due to the immature look and amateur make up on most of the girl student bloggers, many will just label them as "ah lians" and snot off without a second look. Definitely, that is not the desired effect. Oh if you are a guy, if you put on make up, maybe you can be the next BIG WOO-HA IN THE BLOGOSPHERE!
4. Student bloggers will NEVER get the chance to go to malaysia alone and scold the f-word.
Puhlease, you will be peeing in your pants.
5. The web had moved on, bitchiness gets you nowhere now.
So where is Xiaxue. Nowhereland. If you want to join her, dream on. Since the emergence of xiaxue, the bitchiness in the web had caused fatigue in many users, thus it is currently web2.0, people are more concerned about what they can take away from your blog.
So WHAT SHOULD YOU DO FOR YOUR BLOG TO BE FAMOUS!
Look out for the next post, where I will share with you guys what it takes to do a successful student blog.
