Blogging about blogging
Bene Diction is asking some good questions this evening about blogging and the god-blogs (ooohboy, I said "god-blogs" for the first time).
He references Fred Peatross' rant about blogging, which says bloggers blog for four reasons.
Here is my response to Bene Diction, et al.:
Yeah, people blog for those four reasons. But I think there's more. I, for one, blog to continue some conversations and start others. I also post random stuff I find on the 'net that I find interesting that I think people who read my daily stuff would find interesting. And yes, I "share." Unfortunately, my interlocutors are a bit passive (if they are there at all).
I think your other questions are insightful. I have purposely not published a picture of myself so as not to reveal "age" and "color" so directly. Better to keep people guessing.
I think that the "god-blogosphere" is made up of those who have the money to own computers, the computer literacy (read "education") to publish through blogger or somesuch other publishing tool and the leisure (permitted by some level of affluence) to read, ruminate and respond to life via blogs.
What do you think?
