Ambassadors of poverty are
The corrupt masters of the economy
With their heads abroad
And anus at home
Patriots in reverse order
Determined merchants of loot
Who boost the economy of the colonial order
To impoverish brothers and sisters at home
Ambassadors of poverty are
The ‘saviours’ of the people
Office loafers in the guise of workers
Barons of incompetence
With Kleptomaniac fingers
And suckling filaments
Position occupants and enemies of service
Locked in corrosive war of corruption
With their people’s treasure
And killing their future
The poem continues some other time. This is one poem which was written by Philip Obioma Umeh somewhere in the mid-sixties and still stands till date. Today’s post is something about ambassadors of blogging poverty.
The question therefore is; who are these ambassadors of blogging poverty? I don’t know them by names but their characters are what I know.
But as usual, let me introduce my good friend Little Johnny in here. He found himself in church today and take a look at happened.
A pastor announced,”If you know your wife is controlling you, move to the left”.
All the men in the church moved to the left except Little Johnny.
The pastor was amused and asked, “How come your wife can’t control you?”
Little Johnny quietly replied, “Pastor, it’s my wife who told me not to move”
Hahaha! that is how powerful Little Johnny’s wife is.But let move back to business as usual and as you already know, today’s post is dedicated to the ambassador’s of blogging poverty. Who are they? I think I have made it clear that I don’t know them by names but instead do know them by their behaviours.
So what are the characteristics of the ambassadors of blogging Poverty?
1. They are mostly filled with hypocrite
Most ambassadors of blogging poverty are hypocrites. They do exactly the opposite of what they preach on their blogs. This is what Philip Umeh will tell you that they have their heads abroad and anus at home.Come to think of this; a blog telling the entire world how bad this or that product is but at the end, you will find them using it.
I for instance have come across several blogs telling their entire readership how bad it is to use pop ups but at the end they end up using that same thing they have being criticising.
2. They are filled of envy
Another interesting character of these types of ambassadors is that they are filled with envy. As to what constitute that, I am yet to find out. Blogging is fun and one interesting thing is the fact that the internet boasts of more than 1 billion users so receiving 100,000 visitors a day is just a small fraction compared to the number of users on savvying the internet on a daily bases but these ambassadors are just envious of any blog who gets more traffic than them.
3. They think everyone is their competitor
As far as you’re a blogger, they see you as their enemy. Hence no wonder they are ambassadors of blogging poverty and not not blogging richness.
4.They have never made a $1 online before but they go about preaching how you could make $10,000
Hahaha! I guess this needs no explanation. You already know what I am talking about.
5. They are ….
