It's a blog.
In: Uncategorized1 Feb 2009
When I started blogging many years ago, I started by posting mundane crap. “Today was boring and I had a quiz in Algebra.” I soon realized something, though: no one cares. Heck, even I didn’t care. Yet I still find blogs that are personal journals on the Web, making no effort to be interesting, or even explain who Sally and Freddy are when discussing the drama between them at lunch.
But what I find myself noticing increasingly often is people who share their opinions on evertyhing. I haven’t been shy about my opinion on who was more qualified to govern us, or on what websites are worth visiting. But how about the lady who just had octuplets on top of already having six kids? Yeah, she sounds crazy. But who cares about my opinion about some lady having babies? If she can raise them, great. If not, well, shame on her, but that holds true for any person having any quantity of babies, anywhere. Does anyone care about my opinion on that? For that matter, isn’t it creepy for me to have an opinion about the parenting prowess of a women I’ve never met, and whose name I don’t know, or even care to know?
