I'M NOT A BLOGPORTUNIST

There's really no blog post here. I'm not one of those people who pretend to engage in Twitter conversations while only looking for ways to spam everyone with an old post. Worst offenders: The ones who manipulate a conversation around to an excuse to blogdrop. 

Urban Dictionary: Blogportunist: "Someone, who in the midst of an online conversation, shares one of their own blog posts usually in an effort to show how smart they are or let people know they’ve already had this idea or as a form of self promotion (marketing)."

Referring to your own blog is not necessarily being a blogoportunist. If you've made a particular argument at length before it can be useful to summarise your point and refer to the blog post for those who want to read in more detail. It's probably best to judge a person's reasoning rather than their motives.
