NOW this is the Law of the Blogger - as old and as true as the sky; And the blogger that keeps it may prosper, but the blogger that breaks it must die.
As the visits that pump up the hit count, the Law runneth forward and back -- For the strength of the Blogs is the Blogger that never cuts anyone slack.
Blog daily from news-tip and hat-tip; blog long, but blog not too deep; And remember the Pundit's for linking, and forget not that he has to sleep.
The new blog may free flame the Jordan, but, Cub, when thy archives have grown, Remember the Big Blogs are hunters -- go forth and get scoops of thine own.
Keep peace with the Lords of the Blogsphere -- the Pundit, the Malkin, the Bear; And trouble not Lileks the Bleater, and always mock Kos in his lair.
When Pack meets with Pack in the Blogsphere, and neither will put down the flame, Lie down till the Spewers have blathered -- it always will save you from shame.
When ye flame on a Prince of the Pack, ye must fight him alone and afar, Lest others take part in the pile-on, and all Blogs be diminished by war.
The URL of the Blogger's his refuge, and where he has made him his home, Not even the Pundit may post, not even the Hewitt may come.
The URL of the Blogger's his refuge, but when he has blown it too plain, The Football shall send him a fisking, and so he shall blow it again.
If ye post after midnight, be patient, and wait for the next working day, Your readers are reading from cube farms and commenting only for play.
Ye may post for yourselves, and your country, blog your cats if you must, and ye can; But post not for pleasure of sacking unless you sack Eason Jordan!
If ye plunder a post from a weaker, remember to link for his pride; Link-Right is the right of the smaller; if you're wrong it'll be him that lied.
Now these are the Laws of the Blogger, and as true and as blue as the sky; You can link, you can wink, you can blather, but at the end of the day you can't lie.
Amazing writing. Good enough to be compared to one of the greatest poets, RK. Thanks.
I love it! Applause!
