I’ve been asking myself recently: is my blog ultimately an ‘independent blog’? Suddenly throwing this question at myself is not too trite, only because this time, it led me to an epiphany. 再加上之前的想法略显幼稚(note: in the process of growing up, naivety is inevitable), subconsciously, I always felt that my site was an ‘independent blog’, but in fact, am I really “independent?

Do I satisfy the three criteria for independent blogging?

Many people think in the following way: to determine whether a blog is independent, there are three basic criteria: 1. independent domain, 2. independent hosting, 3. independent contents. Now concerning my ‘Zhao Qiang’ blog, it has an independent domain name (zhaoqiang.org), and the blog is hosted on an independent server in Hong Kong, but the contents are ‘not entirely independent’.

What does it mean to say that the contents ‘are not entirely independent’? To put it bluntly, I say that because I write a few texts “passively”. 这种类型的博客属于“迎合性博客”,何谈独立?那我又是为什么会被动?Two words: follow suit. But why would I follow suit? 源于对自己实力的“轻视”以及去独立博客圈子的“盲目”。

1.轻视:自己非权威,非业内,只是凭着自己的爱好去写博客,最初为了吸引别人来看自己的内容,总会迎合性地写一些自己都“讨厌的文章”。事后觉得这是对自己的轻视和不自信,后悔当时的冲动。试问:王侯将相,宁有种乎?

2.盲目:建立博客之初,信以为真地觉得自己很“幸运”,竟能遇到那么多的“砖家”。后来慢慢明白:所谓的砖家不过是徒有虚名罢了,而“真正的专家”很少去自己“主动推广”自己的。

话说到此,是否有人觉得“赵强博客”不是合格的独立博客。This is a fact, I need to be honest about my own situation, and only with the courage to face people will I be able to go one. 带有目的性的博客不是好博客,而我最初却全中了。

Do I desire an independent blog?

面对“独立博客三要素”不能同时成立,我的博客难道就注定不能独立吗?其实,我个人是非常向往拥有一个独立博客的,因此我很早就打算告别“迎合性的博客”了。

记得我的博客创建的前2个月里,是在“按部就班”地过日子,很机械化,以往那些博主犯的“错误”我几乎都经历了。而在这之后,我就已经朝着独立博客转型了。既然是转型,肯定要独立自主地记录自己的想法。至于博客的转型结果如何,大家可以通过我的文章去了解。

借用一句donews社区主编小欧的话:“可惜鲁迅老爷子没活到今天,他老人家若是今天开个博客,就算没有160元钱整个域名空间,那也将是互联网上最牛逼的独立博客。”

Last words:

Whether a blog is ‘independent’ does not only depend on these three criteria, no matter what platform you write on, 只要你的“思想”不再被动,自然也就水到渠成了。(Text: Zhao Qiang)
