An Anti-Ranty Tanty
I was talking with Andrea of Fox in Flats about the uprise in ranty blog posts.
I hate ranty blog posts. Andrea hates ranty posts. Do you hate ranty posts?
If you're in a bad mood. Sure. Write about it. Then delete it.
The negativity that seeps out from those posts is, as my friend Britney famously once said, toxic.
I feel so angsty about ranty posts, I've taken it upon myself to put pen to paper and pen this ode.
An Ode to Cranky Pants Super Social Media Stars:
Angry, cranky ranty-pants
Why so angry?
You go social
It goes viral
Down you go in a cranky spiral.
Megaphone blogger mega-cranks
Might as well call the army
- send in the tanks.
Share your bad mood
With the whole world.
Status update to Mr Z'berg
To tell the world it's a big turd
Share your mood with your blogging brood
You're so mad with the world -
Why not delete it?
Tweet your peeps
and let them know you've got the poops
I want out of these cranky groups.
Pin this, update that, tweet those, and
Facebook your foes
I dare you - breathe deep touch your toes.
Life ain't so bad you got to broadcast.
