Blogging

I started blogging because sometimes I like to write. It's nice to write stuff just for me and not for anyone else, except that maybe I'd like it to be understandable. And also proofread, but don't tell me about misspellings (especially the other day when I put THEIR instead of THEY'RE - thank God I fixed that before Esposo saw it for the mocking would have been painful) because I KNOW I'm not good at typing.

If you read blogs, and a lot of them, eventually you stumble on things like "BlogHer" and some other conventions I don't remember the names of. Yeah. Conventions. For blogging. For typing random little muses into a computer. Frankly, I don't get it.

I love to read blogs, but I prefer the people in the blogs to stay and People In The Blogs. I don't like when they start revealing their real names (Sundry is still Sundry to me!) where they had not previously before. I don't like the idea of meeting these people live and in person so I can say "Uh, yeah, I read about your home remodel". But then, perhaps it's because I am not so into the meeting of random people.

The reason I was thinking about this is that I blog-hopped and ended up reading someone's post about how they weren't blogrolling anymore (see the list on the right. That's a blogroll. I think.) because of the politics of it. Poli-wha? Apparently people get pissy, and you have to comment, and you have your blog-friends and I'm all wha???

Sometimes I comment on people's blogs, when I have something to say. But mostly I don't. And I don't care that I get virtually no comments here. Sometimes Isabel comments (Hi! Thanks for reading!) and that's cool. Sometimes Sara (Hi! Thanks for readng!) comments, but I know her in real life. But I just don't get the blogrolling political stuff. I link to the blogs I read ona daily basis mostly so I can find them without thinking. I don't like thinking.

I don't do political.

Let me know when you're around - but I already know who Kosh is, so there isn't a surprise there (sorry!).
