So when I finally come across something that depicts blogging as a bit more than journaling, I have to share, right?
But as I discovered, blogging is no longer for amateurs or the faint of heart. Blogging – if it’s done well – has evolved into an all-consuming art.
So there all you blogging is journaling knuckleheads. This ain’t no “Dear Diary” junk.
Serious bloggers, I realized, aggressively report a pet issue, updating their sites throughout the day. They scavenge the Internet for every shard of information on a hot topic, like John R. Bolton’s chances of becoming ambassador to the United Nations or Tom DeLay’s ethical troubles.
Yeah. Uh-huh. That’s right. We’re agressive reporters. We’re bloggers. Uh-huh.
To succeed in blogging you need to understand it’s a craft, with its own tricks of the trade. You need a thick skin. And you must put your life on hold to feed an electronic black hole.
Ooooo….take that! It’s a craft. We got tricks and tough skin. We’re like feeding an…um…ah…electronic black hole?!?
