Every time a new blog is posted, a chess move is made. Chess is a competitive board game played by many people in our world, but bloggers play it everyday.
Really powerful topics that attract a huge audience are the bigger chess pieces, and the topics that don’t attract a lot of feedback can be known as the pawns.
Every blogger is competing against the other, or aren’t they?
Does this make sense? I thought it was a neat thought that was inside my head! ^^

[…] Chess […]
Hmm interesting analogy you have there. Although I must say that I am not really competing with other bloggers. I blog for the fun of it. It is nice to have readers but I remember blogging even when I had no one who knew about my blog XD. I also tend to blog a lot of private entries once in a while. Nevertheless…it seems interesting because I think some people out there might indeed be competing with their blogs lol.
I think some people blog more for themselves than for their audience or traffic or whatnot. But I do love chess, so I am almost inclined to agree with the metaphor just for its image. Almost.
That’s an interesting way to think about blogging, but I totally get where you’re coming from and I agree. The blogging world is like a huge game of chess, I’ve never really thought of it that way before but it makes sense. XD
You always think about things in depth like this. 😛
Oh, I forgot to mention, I love how you’ve customised my theme, it looks better than the original haha. XD
Thanks! I just changed it again… I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just can’t seem to be happy with my site anymore right now. D;
Haha, thank you. 😛
Yeah, some people play the blogging game thing for wins, and others just play it for fun. I could have compared it to Battleship, but I don’t remember a lot of that game. It’s a been a while, heh.
I can see how that makes sense. I think I understand what you were trying to say. I think that blogging is quite the competition to many people these days although I do think that there are a lot of bloggers that do it for the sheer joy of just having a place to write what they have to say without the need for competition.
Haha, thank you. It was actually just a random thought I held in my head one day. I wasn’t really calling anyone out on it or anything. 😛
