Cat blogging. Some find the term to be derogatory. I’m not sure to whom — the cats or the bloggers.
What Kind Of Cat (Blogger) Are You…?
House CAT – Your average, “blogging about my life” blogger. May seem boring, but some people’s lives are strangely entertaining.
CAT-alyst – Blogs for change.
CAT-astrophe – Writes one of those god-awful blogs that you can’t believe anyone actually reads. I’m sure you’ve run across a few. Usually has more ads than content.
Copy CAT – The scraper and the splogger, who gets all of their content from other hard working bloggers. May not know what they’re doing is wrong.
CAT Burglar – Same as above, but most definitely DOES know what they’re doing is wrong.
Alley CAT – One who is teetering on the brink of becoming one of the two above. Hangs out is some poorly chosen back alley’s of the intertubez.
CAT-acomb – Has created a deep and winding archive that can cause one to get lost while exploring. Some interesting things may be found during the excursion.
CAT-apult – Constantly launching their blog to the next level. Sometimes stratospheric shots, sometimes short range hits.
CAT-echism – Religious blogger.
Scaredy-CAT – Afraid of offending anyone or saying anything that anyone would disagree with. In trying to please everyone, doesn’t please anyone.
CAT-aract – Writes so well that they cloud your own viewpoint. Tends to have raving fans, whether or not what they write actually has any clarity.
CAT scan – Posts aren’t really worth reading all the way through.
CAT-tle – Doesn’t have their own opinion about anything, and just follows what the crowd or the blogging cowboys say.
CAT-amaran – Currently riding a big wave of success.
Okay, That’s A Good Starting Point…
I’m sure I’ve missed some, or maybe misidentified a few. But the great thing about guest posting on a blog about blogging for bloggers is that bloggers get this stuff. They see the hilarity and absurdity in it, but play along — because sometimes it’s just nice to be silly.
Blogging a great medium. It can be a powerful tool, a source of income, and way to express your deepest inner creativity. It can also be seemingly pointless — in a good way. In this day and age, we need more silly, pointless fun.
So now it’s up to you. How do you CAT-egorize yourself?
 – It’s important to note that as a parent, I am required by law to know the words of various children’s songs, and must listen to said songs a minimum of 100 times a day. Therefore, in order to preserve my sanity, I have tried to select artists who not only do not make me want to jab a skewer into my ear, but that I find myself listening to, even when the kids aren’t around. I highly recommend Billy Jonas if you are in a similar situation.
