What not to do

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 7:48 pm

Via this Blogcritics post about the nature of Weblogs and life, I read this post about why friends don’t read blogs and finally stumbled upon these ridiculous “rules” of blogging. And it just chafes me.

Apparently, my site is the perfect example of what not to do. And I’m damn proud of it. Those of you whose sites are all about the news, politics, and tech, good for you, you should be so very proud – you’ve followed rule #2 to a tee, which is “don’t blog about yourself.” However, you won’t find me among your stats – I have absolutely zero interest in reading your most likely misguided, slanted rants about the state of the world today, especially the world’s most boring topic, politics. What I am interested in reading about is people (“who need people”.) And why wouldn’t anyone? I really don’t get the fascination with reading more about the day’s topics. Crap, man, I do this to get away from all that serious junk out there. Your fellow humans have many more interesting stories to tell than what makes the news.

Most of all, it’s just annoying that someone thinks there needs to be rules, sarcastic or not, about what a blog should be “about.” Who cares? If you don’t like it, you move on to another site. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I know there are others out there who do actually want to read about people’s lives. It may mean a smaller number of hits per day, but really, who really cares? If you’re doing this for fame, you need to find a new route to fame because it ain’t gonna happen here.

    If you are in the minority then so am I. I write about me and mine because that’s what I know and care about. I write for me, not you. I’m just a selfish bastard that way. I don’t…
