Types of Bloggers: Global breed of authors?

There are two main categories of bloggers: Bloggers from the developed nations and those of the “developing” States (whether they form nations or incomplete UN recognized States)

The bloggers from developed nations have two critical advantages:

1. They can move freely withing their nation and outside their borders. All they need is landing a ticket to anywhere on earth: No humiliating lengthy visas requirement and no serious discrimination in the host countries they visit.

Contrary to “citizens” from developing countries who need to plan a year ahead of time to amass all the documents and requirements in order to “enjoy” a miserly 2 weeks vacation in a developed nation

2. They enjoy a wide range of opportunities for the subject of studies, continuing education, and facilities to improve their talents and performance.

I’ll focus on the types of bloggers in the developing countries, particularly in Lebanon:

1. One category is constituted of people who spent a couple of years abroad in their youth and attended schools before settling in their home country and are eeking out a living.

These bloggers claim to be “apolitical“: They refuse to keep up with “local politics” and cannot name the President of their country or know the difference among the political parties, as if refusing to admit their current condition.

Strangely, they are highly political on the global scene: gender discrimination, climate change, sustainable environment, equitable commerce, freedom of expression, life-style in food consumption and ever changing life-style as internet “research” suggest….and they are not aware that these issues are plainly political in nature.

2. A category who spent a few vacations abroad, not lasting a couple of months at a time, and are settled in their countries.

Two subcategories emerge:

Those well-off who attended private schools and university and managed to “learn” another language of either French or English, and not completely mastering any of the languages. These bloggers exhibit tendencies for cynicism in their abridged comments and share links pertaining to entertainment and outdoor events. Many join “cultural groups” as tribes.

And those who could not attend but public schools and barely comprehend another language to be used as medium of communication.

These bloggers are not able to expound on their opinion for lack of general knowledge and lack of reading.

3. A category who managed to settle in a developed nation and is earning its living in a “developed environment”.

These are valiant immigrants who made it against all kinds of barriers in discrimination and constricting laws and surmounted the nasty odds of earning a living in a foreign land.

Although they were apolitical before they immigrated, these bloggers become the main source of in-time follow up on the troubles facing their homeland. They are very active in sending links to articles, videos and pictures of foreign information related to their home state. And they do participate in organizing demonstrations and activities to unite their people abroad

4. A category who “know” the world from the imaginary reality of global inter-connectedness and formed a worldview that they have never experienced.

These bloggers resume their traditional life by attending religious social events and tending to stick so some kind of shallow customs. They are members of sectarian political parties and vote to their feudal leaders whether right or wrong.

Note: I am used to click on Top Posts  at WordPress. In the last couple of months, I have the impression that I am disconnected with the subject matters of almost all selected top posts.

I am under the impression that a new “selection team” is focused on selecting local US topics and disregarding the rest of the world concerns.

If the team does its due diligence of writing a short “in context” message or asking the bloggers to add a few paragraphs “in context” in order to inform the general reader of “what’s going on” and why the post was selected in the first place, may be we can get used to clicking on a few of them for curiosity reasons.

Actually, during this horror preemptive war of Israel on the huge concentration camp of Gaza, I didn’t stumble on a selected article on this topic. It is as if the team is revolving in a dual world.
