The seven modes of blogging

Just as the Greeks discovered musical modes by which their music was classified, so too did they discover the seven basic modes of blogging. They are:

Mimetic
Ironic
Sarcastic
Moronic
Catatonic
Polemic
Bubonic.

So what mode do you blog in mostly, do you think?

UPDATE! - Some other less commonly-used blogging modes:

Sardonic
Philharmonic
Colonic
Bernardtomic.

Perhaps I would have said Moronic but I've just noticed some swellings in my armpits and groins and all the rats have died so mayb...........

Oh it's only if your blog's got those symptoms that you have to worry. And no, not moronic at all.

Um, so, the modes of blogging are kinda like the seven stages of grief.

TimT said...

Good point, there's probably a new age theorist out there waiting to draw a link between the seven musical modes, the seven stages of grief, the seven modes of blogging, the seven days of the week, and... got any other sevens?

Caz said...

The seven dwarves ... obviously.

I'll have to bags Dopey, because he's the only one without a beard, plus he wears a purple hat.

(Disclaimer: I have neat little ears.)

ECG, how do you treat plague if the patient has a penicillin allergy? I've spent years looking for a socially acceptable opportunity to lance a bubo, is why I ask.
