Blogs...So Hot Right Now.Hello to the blogging world! As you can tell, I am a new edition to the Butterfly Network and I am very excited. I am good friends with Sara and Lil, and I have a problem…a blog problem. I never thought I would be one to get into this whole online diary thing, but it is so addictive. I am an intern at a pretty prestigious place, but they really don’t have much for me to do so I just sit at my desk and pretend like I am doing something. When in all actuality I am looking up celebrity gossip and constantly checking blogs. I have slowly weaned myself into this whole craze, but now I am officially addicted.
Last night I had the girls over for some wine and cheese and of course I got wasted. When I am drunk I think of the most random things and think it is a genius idea or thought, which needs much discussion. Now, I have turned those thoughts into “blog entry” ideas. So as I was washing my face I thought that an interesting blog would be to write about how different make up products affect your skin. I literally ran out of the bathroom with soap and water dripping down my face and told Lil my "ingenious" idea for a blog. A) that is just an AWFUL idea for a blog and B) why have all my thoughts turned into blog ideas? What is wrong with me?
Anyways, so my main thought for this blog, is why are blogs so popular and why am I addicted? Is it because I am just not intellectually stimulated at work by which I sit at a computer desk reading random dribble for 5 hours a day? Or is it really going to be a passion of mine to continue writing excerpts on my life and read about others?
Another thing that baffles me is that people take the time to write these witty and quirky blogs and then they come to find comments by their readers who absolutely destroy their whole blog with ruthless comments about it. People are writing and putting up these blogs for everyone’s source of entertainment and there are people out there who are just so harsh. Is it necessary to be that rude? Does that give you satisfaction to leave such mean comments? I understand that everyone has different opinions from one another, but there is no need to attack them for their thoughts. I know you are all thinking, mean comments are there for a reason because that is how you get into discussing more on the issue at hand, but I am talking about the comments that call the writer a “Bitch” or something along those lines. That is just unnecessary, how can you call someone a bitch when you don’t even know a person?
From reading all the mean comments out there that people say, I do have another issue with Blogs and that is the fact that I always get nervous after everything I post. It can either be after a blog entry or even a comment. I am just waiting for someone to tear me apart about either my thoughts or comments, which isn’t good at all.
So as this furthers my career in the blog world, I hope you all enjoy my thoughts and try and keep the mean comments to a minimal! As you can tell I am not a big fan of those.;)
