social attention

[see also: item 1417]

I think to gain legitimate/ethical/righteous attention you need to say something
  • valid - true or could be made true to a group
    • or is entertaining
  • in context of the group
  • in tune to what is happening (or could happen)

Note this item bears on (is about) the attitude you adopt when you promote and advertise something ... even fastblotit. 
  • How do you stay legitimate/ethical/righteous ... that is pretty easy
  • how/where do you find/create  the group to address your promotions ?  Where do you seek it? (this addresses the "in context of the group" bullet above )
  • How is fastblogit in tune with what that group wants/does/can-do ?

I'm granting that you are using the Washington spelling of the word which derives as follows:
source:legitimate Look up legitimate at Dictionary.com 1494, "having the status of one lawfully begotten," from M.L. legitimatus, pp. of legitimare "make lawful, declare to be lawful," from L. legitimus "lawful," originally "in line with the law," from lex (gen. legis) "law." Transferred sense of "genuine, real" is attested from 1818. Shortened form legit is first recorded 1897 in theater slang.
from the etymological dictionary.  So I ask who is trying to say what's legal according to some social attention - in fact what you may giving in to, probably without intention , is what is a pox on the country right now and that is political correctness.

"ethical" or "righteous" would be closer to what i am reaching for here. If i shit on your dorstep, i will gain your attention, but that is not ethical, that is out of bounds.

Social attention may be something like memes - memes have a value to the evolution of the mind. In another way it might be like the daily "news front" which the media trys to tell you what is important. Blogs do somewhat the same thing. The jury is out as to whether this is of value to a focused, purpose-driven human being. It may have something to do with the TV & internet generation.

Mark de LA says
Somebody seems to be spreading the word (meme) that blogs are important!

Mark de LA says
One theory is that the mainstream media used to control all the news & information , but some bloggers calleed them out for putting out fake shit etc. Now they are afraid of bloggers.

Richard Brodie (Virus of the Mind) came up with Internet Viruses & some ideas on how to combat them. His website has lots of interesting resouces on memes. One of them is a pointer to a book called the Lucifer Principle (first 2 chapters are free) dealing with social organisms. I wonder if there is some applicability to the social attention idea.

Without social attention the idea dies! My counter on some of these anthropological ideas is anthroposophical - group souls etc.

Actually fastblogit is not in any bind here.  It's function is to server the community.   It does not charge or tax that community.  The better it serves the community the more attention it will gain and the more capital it will attract.  We have no problem with that.

Now how can it attract the attention of that community ????
