Ok, so, we’ve established two obsessions on my part. One is my obsession with being #1 at things that aren’t hard to win. The other is my deepfelt hatred of survivor. Actually, as a webpage i find it quite interesting, but as a teevee show its ratings were a testament to how low we have sunk as a society. Combine these two impulses together, and you have my intense desire to blog more often than the 9 remaining survivors do every day. Of course, they currently lead me on links from the power blogger page by 90, but that’s just a small detail
The crux of the matter is that there are quite a number of blogs on the internet, a significant percentage of which are updated regularly. Of those updated daily, there are then some that are updated frequently. And then there are the 50 people active enough to update all day. And i am, for now, one of those people. What bothers me, is that when i randomly click through some of the top10, i don’t find a whole lot that grabs a hold of me.
Of course, i have a history with joining a new genre of page and then trying to dictate what it should be based on my expectations of it. However, weblogs are more familiar ground, and i know the difference between an excuse for portals with fancy layout and someone who is actually writing something. Which is not to say that i’m writing anything. I don’t really have anything to write yet, but i suppose i’m trying to draw an audience in with the promise that i will have something to write about in the fall, which is really only a week and a half away for me.
You might be reading this right now and thinking that it is just a bunch of self assured tripe, and that you could do better. I honestly believe you can. It takes about five days to get listed in the directory at blogger.com. It takes less than an hour to get set up on GeoCities. Start a blog page today. Think about what to do with it for the next four days. On day five, post your intelligent thoughts like a madman. I promise to be there watching.
