Have you ever clicked "Next Blog" on the toolbar above? I started clicking through a few and thought it was pretty neat. There are some really...strange...blogs out there, but there are some interesting ones as well. It's pretty amazing to me that there are so many people out there who are blogging, and that's just on blogger.com. There are hundreds and thousands of blogging websites. And there are millions--or billions of people on the internet writing...many times writing about absolutely nothing. Like me.
Some people write poetry, stories, post photography, pictures of their children, anything!
On blogger, as I browsed through, I realized how global this silly blogging thing is. There blogs in all sorts of different languages, displaying different cultures and religions and philosophies..and some pretty freaky stuff. But it's all good.
I stumbled upon a couple of interesting blogs:
These two guys are travelling the world together and journaling their travels with photos:
This girl is going to school in Hungary:
As I continued browsing, a few more interesting blogs popped up. But the rest were more like mine--a website someone might stumble upon by some freakishly twisted accident and wonder, Why, God?
What makes a blog appealing to people in general? I understand, you all are here because you know me and you feel a little sorry for me...and you are drawn to it by some sadistic power, like a train wreck or a severely deformed cat. But take, for example, The Pioneer Woman blog (that's on my blogroll over there on the right). She started out on something like Wordpress posting pictures of her children and now she gets over 25,000 hits a day!
What do you think it is?
If you know, tell me, so I can blog for a living and sleep in sometimes.
