Margaret Wente and the Blogging Idiots
Every year around this time I feel like quitting blogging. And I never understood why I always feel the animal urge to come back.
Until I read the bourgeois fool Margaret Wente.
And I realized it's because I'm a male, I'm an idiot, and I like to pee in the snow.
Perhaps you've noticed that most of the comments on these websites are not terribly sophisticated. They contain a large insult quotient, even when they come from people with advanced degrees. They remind me of nothing so much as a bunch of 12-year-olds holding peeing contests in the snow.
Not that there's anything wrong with that eh?
But all I can say is if she's going to write about blogging, shouldn't she do some research? So she can find out that men and women are equally represented.
Spare us from this sexist nonsense:
Men clearly have an urge to blog that women lack. Like extreme snowmobiling, the blogosphere is dominated by men. Not many women are interested enough in spitting out an opinion on current events every 20 minutes.
And ask more interesting questions....like why are bloggers getting older?
According to the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project, blogging activity has dropped drastically among young adults in the United States....In December 2007, for instance, 28 percent of all 18-to-29-year-olds with an Internet connection kept some sort of blog. By the same time last year, that number hovered around 15 percent.
"Sites like Twitter are offering this other way to maintain a similar social connection, but without the concerted effort of a detailed, four-paragraph blog post..."
Or the questions I ask myself. Is a four-paragraph blog post really a concerted effort? Is Wente really an IDIOT?
These days, you don't even have to start a blog to get an audience. All you have to do is write “Margaret Wente is an idiot” and hit send. Instant gratification!
And who knew she's THAT famous?
Of course I'm an idiot too. But I do love blogging.
And since I also like to make videos. And the more videos I make the less I blog. Which thanks to the Manolo Lady, I now understand is bad for my manly manliness.
I welcome this development...
Or do I? Although I liked the Late for Work one a lot, and the blond guy at the bar...when he was drunk... I STILL can't decide.
Are we becoming smarter and more creative....or dumber and more violent?
Oh well. At least two things are for sure eh?
Whether you're male or female blogging is easier when it rains. Harder when it's sunny and WARM.
And after today, nobody can deny, that Margaret Wente is an IDIOT...
