I am not sure I get blogging. I mean, we have talk radio, talking heads, NPR, CNN and lotsa jive magazines. Why do we need more of this?
My best guess is that a blog allows us to look at someone's unique slant on life; something authentic about a fellow human being. I am really turned off by blogs that just give opinion about things (politics, morality, religion, etc) We have far too much of that crap already.
A couple of blogs that I was exposed to rather accidently started me thinking that this wasn't such a self-indulgent thing to do afterall. One is a website that my daughter regularly visits. http://thepioneerwoman.com/ Her blog is integrated into a really interesting website. If you take some time to delve into here site it will become apparent that this gal is superwoman. She is a city gal turned ranch wife who photographs, writes, cooks, homeschools and does a fab job.
Then there was a blog from a gal who lives in her van and makes a living as a stripper. And, maybe she turns a trick or two. Sounds kinda trashy, right? Actually it is interesting because this gal is so articulate and so honest. http://www.hobostripper.com/ Again it is a priviledged look into someone's uniqueness.
Ok, I just connected to the hobo stripper to check the link. Well, there are a couple of photos on there that border on smut. Use your own jugdment. She is a stripper, whadaya expect!
These are only a couple of examples from a guy that does not look for blogs to follow. Bet you have others. Let me (us) here about them.
I want have a photo today, so here is one that has nothing to do with ranching, stripping, or blogging.
