This is my brand spanking new blog. I'm not sure what I think about blogging. I have read some really good ones, and I've also been annoyed by the banality of others. Self-advertisement through blogging represents the narcissistic tendencies of our society. The blogger says "Hey, look at me! I'm so great and I have so many interesting, insightful things to say. I'm sure everyone will want to read my blog." Have you ever noticed that "blog blog blog" sounds an awful lot like "blah blah blah"?
Anyway, I shouldn't be so cynical. I guess there are other ppl. out there that just want to keep a journal, and happen to have a secret desire for everybody to see their innermost thoughts and be impressed, rather than repulsed, as their secret fears suggest. Oh, wait--I didn't stop being cynical. I really should, since there are, in fact, some blogs I really like. For example, there's a blogspot one called Thoughts of a Wanderer, and there's the blog of the president of Fuller Seminary.
I better go enjoy the fabulous dinner my hubby is preparing.
