I think I've noticed how the world has come to a blogging overload. My friend Gregg has now given up playing music to pursue his career of writing in his blog and having people hang on every one of his words. Up. It's like a freakin' full time job. He has flame wars (not a gay thing) and has these strange friendships with other people who blog.
Personally, I'm not a daily blogger nor do I think I have very much to say. I guess I could write more often, but seriously, who the hell cares what I write. I'm realizing the people who write and make their blog their life are people who are searching for a little stardom. I don't blame them. I'm searching for it too, but through music and design. I often think the same of the karaoke diehards. It's their time to shine even though it's not their song and they are just singing with a cheesy recording. Don't get me wrong - I love karaoke once and a while but I'd much rather write my own stuff.
Anyways, back to the world of blogging. Probably about 2 years ago - I didn't even know what it was. Now -look at me- I have my own. But I've recently figured out that I am an extremely guarded person and don't like to let any one inside my head unless I know them. I always knew I could be quiet sometimes but it's come into my full attention since I've moved to a single apartment where it's just my puppy and I. Now it seems I'm turning to these entertaining blogs so I can almost live vicariously through them. Weird - I know. And pretty sad... Haha... Who loves calling themselves a looser???? It's me - It's me!!
Well, I guess I don't really have a point. haha.... I guess I'm just commenting on how many god damn blogs there are out there. Everyone and their sister's mother's best friend's dog have a frigin' blog. People will link their websites to death - everywhere they go. (you know who you are...) But if I had to pick a couple to tell people to go to it would be:
greggoconnell.com (he's really funny and a bit extreme)
pinkbeltrage.com (she is a fantastic writer and keeps you engaged)
rockstarmommy.com (she is pretty funny and is just a normal girl writing about girl stuff not giving a shit about what people think)
So - have fun reading and until next time my lovely readers... All 2 of you... I mean it. I love you man... and it's not just the wine talking...
