Does someone promote a “Worst Blogger” award? I wonder if I would be a nominee, should it be created, at least according to a few common sense criteria.
- Must be trying to be active. That is, a writer who blogs infrequently or next to never (which I suspect would include many who start but drop the practice out of boredom or distraction) would not be eligible.
- Must aspire in some way, any way. This excludes writers aspiring to offend, for such a person may draw like-minded haters to his or her material. That’s success on its own terms, so such a blog would be out. Also, a writer taking on arcane and specialized material (“My Fascination with Carpet Fibers”) would still be able to merit some worth. Such ephemeral pursuits exhibit a fascinating charm, so most such writers would be out of consideration.
