1. You look at every situation and circumstance and think “How could I turn this into a good post”
2. You’ve made a friend or two through blogging.
3. You’ve made an enemy or two through blogging.
4. If someone’s updated, you’re the first to know about it as you check everyone’s blog’s more than once a day.
5. If you haven’t checked everyone’s or updated your own blog in a while – you feel out of touch with the world.
6. Having received no comments on a post makes you cry.
Happy Birthday to Matt – whose birthday it was on Sunday.
And Happy Birthday to Blaine – whose birthday it is today.
“myspace is the new blogger! that’s the reason why no one is blogging. everyone needs to get a myspace cause it’s the cool thing to do… i’ve joined cause i’m cool.”
Luke Matthews comment on Jeremy Frasers Blog.
I have been inspired to post.
I feel like I have to take a stand for the bloggers out there. The REAL bloggers.
I have indeed joined MySpace – but.. I’m still blogging. Blogger is for the committed. For the truly creative ones.
Also MySpace is only for boosting (or lowering) your self esteem. It’s all a big competition. How many friends can I have? How many comments can I get? How many peoples favourite friends lists am I in? How many emo pictures of myself can I display?
I still feel that Blogger, through all the hard times, through all the competition, has retained some of its class. There’s something truly wonderful about a committed blogger. People such as Linus, Ruth, Kathryn..Even Jeremy (however infrequent his updates are)..These people are blogging even when they feel their blogs aren’t being heard. Because they don’t really care, it’s not about how many comments they can get, how many friends they can acquire through having a cool MySpace layout..
So in conclusion – Steff says NO to Luke Matthews. I will still blog, no matter how addictive MySpace may be.
Note: Although I may look like an avid myspace addict, I really find it quite irritating. I’m sick of it accidently posting my comments twice. I look like a moron!
Have you ever noticed that redheads haven’t always had the best repuation..
We’re either fiery redheads, or dorky redheads, or sunburnt redheads, or freckly, pale redheads.. For a long time it wasn’t cool to be a redhead.
Now some of you will still say it isn’t cool, but I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong.
I was born a redhead (no matter how pale it is) and despite my various attempts to “get rid” of my reddish hair.. I am still very proud to be a redhead. There’s something incredibly wonderful about being a part of TEAM RED.. running to the sound of REDNUTS ASSEMBLE.. and of course the joys of slip slop slapping 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year!
I’ve noticed with my hair, that some strands are blonde, (some strands natural blonde, some fake) strands of brown, strands of orange, and then strands of red. Today I found a strand of red.. It’s kind of wirey.. and very cool. The pure red strands are getting rare, as whenever I find one I pull it out and just marvel at the wonder.. *I thought I would share this all with you*
Also – a big holla to my homie.. (what’s with the gangsta talk steff?) Laura Fraser.. whose birthday it is today.
Love your insides Laura. Now you can get married, and let’s hurry up about it.
Today, as I was walking back from the post office, I tripped on what I’m sure was a pretty big ditch on the path, while lots of cars were waiting at the red light. It was kind of embarrassing..
