what is blogging?
I have been on IT2M all day. For those of you who don' t know, its a blog review site. If you want to submit your blog, beware that it isn't only your blog that gets reviewed but your life...if you post about your life.
Today's posts really made me think, what is it about blogging that I love. I like making people laugh, I like talking about my life, I like sprucing up on my writing skills.
But how personal should you go on a blog...really.
There was this chick that called her foster kid "bug" as a term of endearment and called it "stealing" when she snuck a soda from the fridge. Everything about the blog, from my perspective... sucked. Then she submitted it to a site for a bunch of "bitches" to review. What would you expect but an attack upon not only the blog, but the content. Sometimes I think, personal should remain personal.
Then there was another dipshit that put up pictures of him taking his 1 year old daughter to a pro-choice rally. Taking pictures of himself, & his daughter next to pro-choice signs. What message are you sending your child you idiot!? That she was a choice and not a child? (that's another debate) That is fine to be a free thinker, but alittle extreme to use your child as a prop in your political debate.
I know this hasn't been a very funny post...but how funny am I really? Atleast I crack myself up. But these 2 people were whack! They don't get links b/c they don't deserve them and I choose not to exploit thier children more than they already have.
