Issues Of The Blogosphere Are Painfully Boring To Me

Lately I’ve been thinking that I should post more often here. But that means extending my sites on subjects such as reporting on news in the “blogosphere”, and frankly, I can’t bring myself to do it. First, I hate that frigging word. Second, I’m not sure where the “blogosphere” really is. It certainly isn’t a physical place, so I guess it’s more of a state of mind. Well, whatever it is, the “blogosphere” is pretty boring to me, overall.

I’m sure I’m not alone in this. But I imagine most bloggers don’t want to offend their neighbors, so they stay quiet for the good of the order. But I can’t hold my tongue anymore. The blogosphere is boring. I don’t mean boring. I mean REALLY, REALLY mind-numbingly boring most days. It’s a case of “He said, she said” and so much general backbiting, that really, who has the time?

A lot of the news in the blogosphere involves the A-list, who I don’t read (why bother, they have enough readers). I’d rather give the little guy a chance, so I don’t concern myself with what the supposed A-listers do in their echo chamber all day. In fact, I hate blogging celebrities with a passion. They’re as lame as Angelina Jolie, only without the fame and fortune!

So that’s my rant, folks. The blogosphere can kiss my big blogging ass. The A-listers can have seconds :) I’m bored with Digg, Web 2.0, the horrid Technorati, and many of the blogs that seem to be on everyone’s reading lists. From now on, I’m looking around for a whole new neighborhood. And if I can’t find it, I’ll just continue to ignore the blogosphere.

What do you say? Am I being too hard on the blogosphere?

    4. We’re still blogging our *** off and we dont care who’s listening. We’re enjoying ourselves and we check the reader and find the few nuggets we like. Blogging—just like real life, islands of rah amidst oceans of blah. So what?
      My advice—go out in the real world, breathe some fresh air and you’ll feel much better.
