I have been reading this blog for awhile. Jimmy Bastard. An excellent writer. On February 17th, he wrote a piece about Facebook and Twitter spoiling our writing experience...and it really hit home with me. I am by no means a good writer. I just put shit out there, and try to tell a story. A story for posterity.
But I have noticed a real decline in blogging versus the one liners in facebook and twitter. It seems like it's the easy way out...and yes, it does have it's place don't get me wrong because I do it too, along with blogging.
Call me and old fart, but I really miss the old days of forging a relationship with people that read my blog. Perhaps sometimes I am a little too rude, and maybe sometimes boring. And, I get those that don't have time to write anymore...that's just fine. I have been there to.
Blogging has taken a twist....where big corporations are taking an interest. We now have "super stars".... just like in the movies, ..Pioneer Woman..and Dooce. Plus a dozen more.
These are mommy bloggers. What about the rest of us? We still use a lot of product.
I use a lot of toothpaste everyday. CREST? are you listening? I don't think so.
Well in the spirit of being a no name blogger I Ummmm baked a no name cake tonight, I used "no" name flour, bananas, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, vanilla, walnuts, and eggs. Do you see anything missing?
Ummm oil. Fuck.
She's gonna be one dry banana cake. Bring on the cool whip honey.
