What a Team Blog is composed of.
Because of the latest ramblings I kept on seeing because of lurking to several anime blogs(like THAT), I kept on encountering this certain topic about team blogging and team blogs itself.
I find the picture above from my compendium of stolen artworks from (pixiv as usual). Anyway, I think I can explain what composes the team blogs through the use of the LS picture.
Kagami represents the owner/admin of the certain domain. She is the main contributor to the site and maintains it as great as always. She is the one who normally does the blog theme and assures the availability of the blog every now and then. Simply, she’s the boss. She is kind of fast to get tired and somehow feels reliant to other authors to fill up what she must do. She is the most active in terms of having conversation with the audience. She also handles innovations and other new stuffs to improve more the blog. She’ll be the one you must approach if you want to exchange links with the team XD.
Tsukasa here is the happy-go-lucky blogger that somehow got interested in blogging and volunteered to help. She actually doesn’t get that much attention but she is happy since she writes. She is loyal to the blog and you’ll probably notice her very clearly once the owner goes down town or somewhat gets busy because she will be the one to fill up. She is the not-really-housekeeper of the blog. Well, she might be so cordial for now but she’ll soon realize that she has to keep her own…
Konata is the established solo blogger that decided to help out Kagamin with her visions to invade the blogosphere. She is profound with her ideas but she somehow manages to get some new ideas as well from the team blog that helps her thought much more than the normal dosage… She is more active than the admin/owner and other authors and you can somewhat tell that she is already overwhelming other writers in the team blog. Because of her, the persona of the blog is leaning towards her entries instead to that of the owner/admin or as a whole.
Team blogs won’t be complete without the lurkers and other very supportive entities out there. She is the active commenter of the blog and since she is known already to the authors, she is treated as a member of the loyal audience that would be ready to listen to any of the team blog’s entries and rants. She’ll never get tired of commenting and probably spamming your blog. Because of her exposure to the blog, she’ll be soon inspired to either join…or create his own personal blog.
This post is just a hunch of what a Team Blog is since I don’t really plan to join one or create one in the future. Your comments are appreciated if you think I got some of it right or utterly wrong. These are all based on my observations and I do not intend to be offensive to anyone.
