Blog Snobs Be Gone click it and read.
My good friend from Yahoo 360 sent me a link to that article. I read it and realized how much blogging has been a part of my life in the past two years. Shoot I even had a man come and go but my blog is still here. Well, technicallly I changed my blogging neighborhood, but alot of what that article says shows me why I did.
A blog IS a personal journal that we choose to put out there. Sometimes we put personal stuff out there and sometimes we don't.
We choose our what goes in our blogs. Sometimes that choice gets crossed in our heads with "WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT TO READ." That is the point where I took a step back and realized that no matter what my blog was mine and it was about what I wanted, not what would get more page hits.
But when your actions on a blog start to piss people off like for instance. say...if you choose to comment on another person's blog that someone on your friends list don't like...and to bloggily be judged that way is crazy. Or say the fact that a person could even be attacked on a blog over what they write, who they are, who is on their friends list....etc....etc....it's all merely bullshit.
I hate the whole idea of friends lists, and crap.
Sure it does make it easier to get around and read but why not just also have it like it is here on blogspot? I do fine with the way it is here.
The more and more I fix up blogspot with favorite music and other stuff the more and more I feel at home.
Because this is MY online journal. This is my life I blog about. Nobody can judge me here....I don't even think there is a blog god that can judge my blog. :)
As the dude in the article "What good does it do for any of us to journal our way into self-realization if we then fail to take it to the world around us?"
