Reading her recent post on her dissatisfaction of NN's competition a thought crossed my mind, NEVER provoke the wrath of a serious blogger. You'd be signing off your early retirement letter if you do. Probably, one might think, what can a puny little blogger do to a large organization? Agreed that one puny no-body blogger will make little or no impact. But try to stop and think, what happens when there are a lot of other bloggers who read their blog agrees with them? What if one mega famous blogger happens to read their post, agreed and re-post it or tell their followers to go and take a peak on that post? Do you still think it will not effect your organization?
I am not agreeing or disagreeing with Supia's claims. I think she has her points, but I also think that NN have their own procedures. After all, there is always two sides in a story. However, mistakes as this, might spell the end of NN if they are not careful. If bloggers start to run away from them, no matter how many advertisers they get, it wouldn't make any change.
A pin falling on the floor might sound like a bomb exploding in the blogosphere world. So thread the waters carefully if you don't want to fall into a whirlpool.
I am really tired to have coherent thoughts. So I'll end this post here now. Just writing to support this friend of mine. Go check out her blog and see if you agree with her :) Supiaholic
Think I'm SWEET? Then PROVOKE me and I'll make you THINK AGAIN, -the brat,
