Bloggin Without a Noggin

7/31/2008   Comment on This

Everyone knows that having a blog has become huge on the internet. It allows every genius an outlet for his or her creativity. Put another way:
ďEvery idiot now has a village.Ē

To me, there are two types of bloggers:


  • People who are passionate about something and want to persuade you towards their way of thinking
  • People who ďthinkĒ they could have been writers (mainly comedy) and end up writing mindless crap that nobody cares about.

Guess which one I am.

I suppose I am excluding pros that really write for a living but somehow, I think I can jam anybody that writes a blog into one of the above two categories.

In a technical sense, I write for a living. All day long I write emails, programs, specifications, proposals, letters, marketing materials, etc... My entire day is spent mouse clicking and typing while simultaneously on the phone. By the time the day is done, Iím usually out of steam to write some more.

Some people have more than one blog and post new entries every day. I cannot imagine the time that must take. I can hardly think of something worth blogging about once a month. The bigger problem is: once you get on that roller coaster, how do you get off? If your daily blog changes to weekly or monthly, itís kind of admitting you arenít as smart or creative as you thought. You donít have as much to say as youíd like to think. Basically, you ARE the loser everyone thinks you are.

Inevitably, people want to keep cranking out the text and they resort to a brand of drivel that sounds like the family newsletters that Iím sure youíve seen.


Little Timmy lost a tooth while we were on vacation near the worlds largest garbage dump. Next week, Ed starts his new job testing and categorizing cow manure. And, our cat ďPicklesĒ is going to have kittens againÖ

Iím sticking with low expectations so I donít hurt myself.
