Ghost Blogging

This Is Genius. Marcus Troy is on to something.


"I am coining the phrase “GHOST BLOGGER” for those of you who have no idea where this term derives from I’ll explain. In the rap game if you don’t write your own lyrics (like Diddy) you higher a “Ghost Writer” to do your penmanship for you. (sidenote: most people don’t respect those who don’t write their ow lyrics.) The reason why they say “ghost” is because this persons identity is usual kept private and you can use their material and past it off as your own and the real writer essentially remains a ghost( unless they get mad, and call you out). So the game is changing and now blogging is the new way of communicating your ideas, thoughts and beliefs besides the music. Artist like Kanye and Pharell just to name a few have their own blogs which people follow insanely you can tell by the user comments. But do they write their own blogs? Or are their blogs just inspired by them and what they might say?"

    Pharrell doesn't write his own blog, and its no secret.

    This has actually being going on for some time, expect it to get worse as artists jump on them "blog shits." Sigh.

    Do They Write Their Own Blogs? NO

    Are They Blogs inspired by them with their Approval for Promotion and Marketing? YES

    Its really messed up because these Blogs have a Following and they are misleading readers that indeed its the artists posting these blogs when in reality its possibly interns, part-timers or someone in their inner circle.

    People like myself read Blogs and take them into consideration thinking its the artists themselfs posting. I think its preety damn cool knowing that kanye, pharell, Sickamore and Marcus Troy are writing their blogs themselves, is like getting to go inside their mind(pause) and reading what they think about suitiations and stuff that they encounter in their daily life. Especially Musically with me Being an Artist/DJ Myself. But then only to find out that Sickamore and Marcus Troy are the only ones really Bloggin and not kanye and pharell is wack. (No Pun intended to you Sick and Marcus Troy)

    Its not false advertisement, but its misleading to Blog Readers. The Blogospehere is getting like the music game, to many replicas, fakes, and people just doing it the samething. I blog for my own personal reason, but I don't know bout anybody else.SWITCH IT UP! GO LEFT WHEN THEY GO RIGHT, and GO STRAIGHT WHEN THEY GO LEFT!

    You think they have time to blog, they hardly have time to shop, and people still think they do their shopping All the Time. The Position is called a "Stylist". Lol

    The majority of those artists don't even know how to switch on a computer, much less write/submit a blog post.

    Seriously why are people surprised?

    I don't want to sound naive either way, but I always felt like Kanye was really blogging... I dunno.
