Real Community

Everyone acts extremely pleasant and avoids all disagreement. Link farms, glowing blog tour reviews, ridiculously complimentary comments, etc. But community is not cheap. It demands individuals be allowed to speak openly.

Everyone acts extremely pleasant and avoids all disagreement.

Link farms, glowing blog tour reviews, ridiculously complimentary comments, etc.

But community is not cheap. It demands individuals be allowed to speak openly.

When people speak openly, they offend each other. Chaos results. People try to heal the disagreement by converting others to their own viewpoint, or adopting a condescending attitude and trying to heal others.

We heal and convert others because we don’t want to really listen. Instead, we listen to our own Feelings Assumptions Ideas Motives Bloggers self-promote. Brands seek traffic, fans, subscribers.

“ Community building is an adventure, a going into the unknown. People are routinely terrified of the emptiness of the unknown.” Let go of the need to control. We are no longer gatekeepers.

How many blogs does the world need? There is already blog gridlock. It’s a genuinely new literary form, which, at its best, combines the immediacy of talking with the reflectiveness of writing.

Every community has a purpose and a vision. Communities do not exist for their own sake. Get on with the business of the community. But, don’t forget: Community building comes first, problem-solving comes second .

“ Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.” (Prov. 19:20) When we listen to others, we show that we value their words and ideas. Eye contact, nonverbal cues, active listening, response. It’s not about what you have to say. It’s about listening to what others have to say through their user-generated content.

“ My staff was a little nervous about the idea [of sending a letter to the left-leaning blog Daily Kos] … but I had come to appreciate the give-and-take that the blogs afforded, and in the days following the posting of my letter, in true democratic fashion, more than six hundred people posted their comments.” Obama, Barack. The Audacity of Hope . (2006).

“ Online discussion is a poor way to communicate with the average customer, because average customers don’t participate. But it is a great way to communicate to them, because average customers watch and listen.” Loechner, Jack. “The Fractured Web Community Impacts Marketing Focus.” Media Post. November 6, 2008. http://www.mediapost.com/publications/?fa=Articles.showArticle&art_aid=93950

The online context is social media, web 2.0. These tools allow us to connect virtually, in an approximation of community. But really, all community is an approximation. “ Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” (1 Cor. 13:12)

Go to the ant , you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. (Prov. 6:6-8)

“ Some twenty years ago I saw, or thought I saw, a synchronal or simultaneous flashing of fireflies. I could hardly believe my eyes, for such a thing to occur among insects is certainly contrary to all natural laws.” (Philip Laurent, 1917) Qtd by Steven H. Storgatz in SYNC: The emerging science of spontaneous order . 2003.

After Aaron and his sons have finished covering the holy furnishings and all the holy articles, and when the camp is ready to move, the Kohathites are to come to do the carrying. But they must not touch the holy things or they will die. The Kohathites are to carry those things that are in the Tent of Meeting. (Num. 4:15)

Readers “will send links, stories, and facts, challenging the blogger’s view of the world, sometimes outright refuting it, but more frequently adding context and nuance and complexity to an idea. The role of a blogger is not to defend against this but to embrace it. He is similar in this way to the host of a dinner party.”
