Who's Blogging Who? 

In my compulsive blog-surfing with BlogClicker, BlogAzoo, and BlogExplosion, I have had the opportunity to read many blogs that I -- probably -- would never have stumbled across otherwise.     And, as with anything, I've discovered the good, the bad, the ugly, and the indifferent among the lot.     Many I have found to be superbly entertaining, and have bookmarked them for regular reading.

We all blog for our own personal reasons.     There are certain things I choose not to discuss in any of my blogs -- things such as politics (I consider this a very volatile subject, and one that I don't want to debate with strangers in cyberspace -- granted, this is my own personal preference, and no slander against those who choose to do so).     I am also not quite up on the so-called "mommy" blogs.     Nothing against mommies; I just don't happen to be one, and I can't relate to the dialogue about "little ________'s" antics in a way that would be do justice to the writer's talents in describing the details.     There are other blogs that hold no interest for me either, but I won't roll out a "laundry-list" here for fear of insulting anyone (any more than I may already have).     Still, if I have surfed onto someone's site, I take a look around and read a post or two while I'm there -- not being one to make rash judgments at first sight.     I've actually been entertained by some mommies in the process.

But, recently, in my compulsive blog-surfing, I've noticed a large number of bloggers who seem to want to merely "throw-stones" at other bloggers because they are not writing the type(s) of content that these self-appointed blog-police think that they should.     I read one last evening that was criticizing a collective group of blogs he/she had read as being mundane and boring, simply because the bloggers were blogging about their lives.     Once again, I'll reiterate . . .


So, if someone is blogging about laundry, or scrubbing the floors, or picking up the dry cleaning, or whatever . . . HEY! . . . that's their life, and that's what is happening in their world today.     If they choose to blog about it, that is their right, and their creative avenue to do so.     We can't all be utterly fascinating 24/7, can we?     (well, I guess if we're writing fiction we can)

Sorry for the rant . . . I just find the self-appointed blog-police to be a little overbearing in their methods at times . . .
