I’ve gone back and forth on what to do with blog technology.
I waffled for years among a myriad of choices and creative approaches between building a site with higher social or communication purpose, and building something of a more self absorbed level. These two routes, while full of colorfully different approaches from the 152 million? blog practitioners, summarize the bulk of blogs. Slightly more expansive, and comically harsh is Roz Chast’s perception.
I lump her entire pie chart under the self absorption category, but add in a second slice for the altruistic, teaching, and helping nature of other blog sites that also (thankfully) exist online. I admire the people behind those sites. Those are the blogs that can make a difference, big and small, in people’s lives. My site is not one of those. At least not directly. 😉
Maybe I’ll get more serious, and self conscious of taking up valuable bandwidth with cartoons, and rants about tailgaters. Not yet though. For my more serious side, please visit my work site, where you can deliberate any number of ideas on how to hire me for your web site project. I could use the money to pay for car repairs. Thanks.
