One Rant Away From A Nervous Breakdown

I recently found out that a fellow blogger is being chided for keeping a blog about a hobby she very much enjoys. I find this incredulous that people would be so narrow minded in this day and age. I guess next to pornography, blogging is probably the number one hobby on the internet. Millions of people all over the world do it for a myriad of reasons including, making money, sharing ideas, political views and religious faith, not to mention gossip and the latest on technology. Blogging is an amazing creative outlet that reaches many more people in one day than anything else on the internet, including message boards. I've met the most amazing people through blogging and have indulged myself in many ways through blogging, including making some money. So for those naysayers, all I can say is "quit ur bitchin' and go blog urself!".

We bloggers need to stick together! Since I have started blogging about Barry, I have felt so creative (not that I didn't feel creative before, but figuring out what to write everyday 'trying to blog a smile' is my personal challenge). I agree with you...until you try it, don't be critical.
I love your blog. You do a fantastic job keeping us informed.

I agree Susan. Blogging may not be for everyone but until you have tried it don't pass judge. I too have made some friendships with some fellow bloggers.

Susan, I didn't get that these particular people were being derided for blogging at all. To me it appeared they were being criticized for refusing to discuss topics which might generate opposing posts, but instead posted those topics on their blogs, and then posted links to their blogs on the public newsgroup, asking people to go to their blogs to comment instead of posting on the newsgroup for discussion on the group. (Sorry for that convoluted sentence structure.) I love blogging, and love to read other people's blogs. But I don't agree with how these two bloggers are using their blogs to avoid any confrontation in public over what they say. It's like throwing a rock, and then hiding on a blog so they won't get hit if someone throws a rock back at them. But that idea isn't working because people are bringing the blog posts back onto the newsgroup.

Just a difference of opinion from an old newsgroup veteran.
