In a nutshell what she says is that people don’t want to read calm, articulate, literate, logical, reasoned opinions online.
Which, of course, is exactly what I’ve always wanted this blog to be.
I can’t disagree with her. I don’t read a lot of personal blogs. Well, only one that I know of. I used to read several, but over time I got tired of reading about people whining about their lives, and got tired of people describing things that I thought were just insane.
I guess I’m an anti-blogger. I don’t blog like a crazy person and I don’t care to read crazy people’s rants and ravings.
I could write a crazy person blog. Lord knows I’m crazy enough to do it. In many ways I’m probably crazier than most people. But no matter how much people might want to read about my craziness, I don’t have any desire to write about it.
So I suppose I’m doomed to remain on the outer fringes of blogdom for the rest of my life.
Oh well. I suppose I can live with that. I keep telling myself that the main reason I do this is so that my kids have something to remember me by when I’m gone.
Heh, but the truth is, it’s probably not crazy enough for them to waste time reading either…
