There is something seriously wrong with the blog world when Blogcritics is not among the top few contenders in this . Please, do me and Blogcritics a favor and cast a vote for “Best Group Blog” here, and do it everyday (one vote per day is what the site says.) Seriously, the world has had enough of these boring, mostly one-sided political blogs, no need to give this crap awards for being noisy. I am very glad to say I recognized only a couple sites that I read listed there. Consider it an honor not to be nominated, people. Most of this stuff is the same ol’ same ol’ – just a bunch of half-sensible, far left-leaning political BS. It gets very boring very quickly.
I don’t get why blogs have wound up being political. Or technology-related. I’d much rather read about a person’s life, their interests, etc., not a bunch of links to political or tech stories and their opinions on them. Really, my own site isn’t even a true “blog” – I don’t log my travels around the web, so the contraction of “blog” means nothing with regards to my site. Nearly everything I write is of a personal nature. It is my journal, my diary of sorts, but it’s not private. And that’s all I’m interested in finding in other sites. What’s amazing to me is that the most popular sites, the andrewsullivan.coms, etc., are all non-personal, almost entirely political-content driven sites. Yawn. It’s like people don’t want to see the personality behind things. Or they don’t want to reveal their personality. Why bother with all this, then? It’s so meaningless if it isn’t about you. Here’s to meaning, here’s to personality. All of you linked on my site, thank you for being you. Here’s to you.
(Unproductivity thanks you for being special and pretty.)
