She Called Me a Keyboard Warrior

This article is actually inspired by the conversation I had with @Eybyoung earlier this afternoon. She called me the top 1 keyboard warrior.

Keyboard warrior? I find it really funny. She called me a keyboard warrior because of my comments as long as an article and probably longer than some of the articles out there.

Let me give you an example:

These are just two of the comments I recently wrote. On the left is my comment on @kat2x's article this afternoon regarding my views on modular learning. And on the right is a comment I wrote on a newbie's article who joined the recently concluded giveaway event I organized.

I'm not copy pasting these comments. They originally came from my mind and let me tell you that I'm just trying to be myself. There are some users here that I personally know and they can tell you how talkative I am in person. I tell stories, usually about myself, even if they're not asking for it. And I think I brought that personality here.

When I was a newbie in this platform, I never considered the thought of writing everything that's on my mind on the comment box. But I learned how to write a meaningful comment through @wakeupkitty.

At first, I was always wondering and asks myself "where does she get those long comments?" And to tell you honestly I learned a lot from her. She's always honest with her comments and not long ago I sometimes don't know how to respond to her comments because I feel like she's mad or something and it seems like she's always correcting what I said in my article. But you know what? I never took her comments the wrong way. I considered it a lesson and I took her comments as constructive criticisms that will help me to improve - improve my writing skills and improve the way I give comments. And now, I think I've improved a little. And now, I also know how to respond to her comments and even adopted her way of writing valuable comments (mine is just too much though lol).

How to be a keyboard warrior (that is to write long comments)?

  • Read the article thoroughly. When you open an article, don't be in a rush to scroll down. Understand what the writer wants to tell you and give a sort of reflection to what you read.

  • Comment on the images. They say, a picture speaks a thousand words. Give your own interpretation about the image.

  • Relate your experience, preferably something similar to the article you read.

  • Be selective of what you read. You don't have to read every article on your notification. Just select the best one that you can relate to. We are more likely to say something when we can relate to it.

Being a keyboard warrior is actually good for us. It's a nice way of practicing your writing skills. You may be afraid or even shy to write an article so start with your comments first. It will also help you improve your communication skills!

And most importantly, you can gain a fair amount of points. You don't have to post a lot of articles each day, one or two is enough to get nearly 1500 points each day if you write good quality comments.

P.S. Eybyoung and I are not in bad terms haha I actually consider that keyboard warrior thing as a compliment. I have to add this because there might be a misunderstanding with the title of the article lol.

Of course with an article like this, it's not appropriate to put pictures. Remember that it's not all the time that we can put pictures or images on an article. Sometimes, to make an article more formal you won't need any image in it.

You just proved you are a very bad reader,are not interested, did not read the whole article and therefore not understood one word of what she wrote.

To her the comments were useful and she improved a lot in a very short time. She can be very proud of herself.

My advice to you: read what she wrote and start practising it. Who knows you will be the next winner here.

Good luck to you. πŸ€

Well, when i was younger it's pretty hard for me to accept constructive criticisms. I'm the type of person who doesn't like being corrected. But things change as I grow older and wiser. So a bit of constructive criticisms doesn't hurt my feelings now and being able to accept them is actually good because I always consider it as a stepping stone to be a better person, a better writer and it helps with my holistic development. And now see the result. I've improved a lot since I joined here.

Like, you know in social media such as facebook, being called a keyboard warrior is a negative thing to be named with.

I'm glad that RC is not like those social media pages where shaming one another and calling people names and so on is rampant. Here, we can always say what's on our mind without being criticized.

P.S. I edited the last part of the article after reading your comment as it may indeed cause some misunderstanding πŸ˜… Specially to those who read but don't comprehend haha

Im glad that this platform has given you longer patience and deep understanding as to how you'll accept somebody's comment. I think I should adapt the same attitude because Im a bit sensitive when it comes to criticisms. Now that you clicked bait me by your title I've learned the essence of being a good writer.

Woah! I'm surprised to know that you are looking at my responses to every comment. Well, you know what? I also do the same to other writers. I usually don't focus on the writer's reply to my comment but I also check how he/she responds to others and that helps me decide whether to subscribe to that writer or not.

Yeah, you should learn how harness your reaction and feelings when it comes to criticisms. It will help you a lot as a person. Not just as a read cash blogger but in other aspects of your life as well. I literally laughed hard as I saw your comment that I clicked bait you and being a keyboard warrior is contagious and yeah, I can see a lot of proofs (just look at the comments here haha)

Being a keyboard warrior is good it could benefit the author and and so are you. And I would also gladly welcome a keyboard warrior who could criticize my articles. It was for me to know what part of my article is wrong or needed to improve. Just like how I kept my research papers that was full of red pen's Xs, lines, circles, arrows and erased word, sentence or paragraph when I was 4th year highschool and you know what? I greatly benefited with it when we make our research paper on SH. I had really minimize the red pens and be the first group to pass it in our batch. hayss how i missed going to school,Hahaha just kidding I'll never miss making a thesis hahah.

I remember the first time I received a comment from you. That was on my article that I submitted for your sponsorship giveaway event. At first I found it weird because who would actually write a very long comment on the comment box on one post alone? I really thought that your comment alone is longer than my first few articles. Haha But to be honest, I had a good time reading your comment about my article. When I was on my first day on this site, I use to write 3-4 sentences only as my comment, because I thought the writer might take my comment against me. But after reading your article, giving long but substantial comment is indeed beneficial as it lets you say all the things that comes to your mind about the article that was published.

I must admit, I still have time to visit my social media apps when I get tired of being on this, just for a change of environment. And yes, netizens are indeed fond of negative things, it is like their blood. It is as if they will die if they will not be able to read or create unwholesome things. People on Facebook are very toxic. That is why I love this platform, because whenever you are going through bad situation in your life, you still get positive feedbacks and encouragement from other users. That is the distinctness of the two, FB, and RC.

You or we should start by choosing an article to read. Like what you have just said, read thoroughly. You need to analyze every important details that the author of the article is trying to convey and then, there! you can share your insight about it. Sometimes reading an article that is about experiences or life perceptions are too interesting that will give you a flowing idea while typing your comment. That happens to me most of the time.

You need to switch the keyboard that's what I do too. It's easy to do so. If your cursor is in the text field I click on the keyboard (at the right bottom of my phone) and choose another one. I have three. It works fine for me since if I write it's in English.

I'll tell you my childhood secret about typing 😁.. When I was maybe 5 or 6, if you happen to see that round chair or what we so call as stool chair with its brand name "Ruby".. It has holes in it. I press my fingers into its holes pretending its a keyboard and as if I'm typing so fast. 🀣 Then my monitor is the TV screen in a karaoke channel where the lyrics light up as if I was typing those words.. Hahah! 🀣🀣

I do that even until I reached high school. Then in college I was so happy to have a typing subject and our first instrument is an old typewriter πŸ˜‚ when we were able to memorise the letters of the keyboard that's when we were introduced to a real computer keyboard. .
