Lack of originality

There's something that's been bothering me for some time now, but I'm normally not the kind of person who posts rants about things instead of a quality blog. In fact, I would rather not this be considered a rant at all, merely an observation that I wish wouldn't be a problem. Now on to my point.

I've noticed that for quite some time, there are several blogs on the Popular reel that, in my own opinion, aren't very deserving of it. That doesn't mean they lack quality, but what they do lack is originality. There are far too many blogs about "Gold" versus "Butter", and all such variations, as well as rant-blogs themselves. It's very possible that such blogs earn quick attention, as well as the possibility of quick diamonds, but there comes a point to which everyone should move on.

The problem with various blogs all having the same subject is simply that people see how popular a subject is, and rewrite a blog in their own words to say the same thing. Again, although this may lead to quick attention, it also takes away attention from much more original blogs that deserve their own chance at a claim to fame. It's almost unfair, in some respects, to other bloggers. I personally have read quite a few blogs that are well done, with original content, and have next to no views because they've been buried beneath the mountain of Rants, debates, and unoriginality, with little chance at seeing the light of day.

Because of this, I will attempt to justify the situation as best I can, and find blogs that I find to be deserving of attention and do my best to feature them in my own blog series. However, I am only one person, and I ask you, reader, to assist me and do your part. Let's attempt to stop this trend of unoriginality, and let those deserving of their own fame be able to reach that goal. *on a side note, I know the format of this blog is very bad, as I am using my iPhone to type this. Using a mobile device may sometimes cause paragraphs to not work. Don't worry, though, I'll edit this on my PC as soon as I can.

I think it's ironic you're writing an unoriginal blog about unoriginality.

Still valid point, hence the diamond.

Irony is the spice of life. And really, I haven't seen many posts like this, or at least none that aren't considered rants. I do always appreciate a shiny diamond, though :)

All the blogs I've read about unoriginality namely addressed teen skins, and most were rants... I really, really love this post, it definitely brought me to a realization of unoriginality in blogging.

DIMINDI'D AND SUBSCRIBED!

Use the br/> tag (with an opening '<') to manually insert paragraphs.

Many thanks, I didn't know about that. For some reason, iPhones just don't like putting paragraphs in blog posts. Anywhere else, it works fine, but not blogs.

Anyway, it's fixed now. Thanks :)

Indeed, I know. I recieve similar errors posting from my iPad.

Also; is the dog unoriginal? And how does one safely make a dog 'stop'?

Haha no, the dog isn't unoriginal. It's mostly the facial expression of the dog itself, giving a "make it stop" face.

Your dog, I presume?

Actually, it's from a thread on Reddit. But it did seem to apply, at least to me.
My dog is pretty lame, in every picture I have of her she's hiding under a table. Not very fitting.
