I've long been very anti-blog, but I think that viewpoint stems from the fact that people place expectations on their readers. I had a big problem when I talked to people directly and they would ask me, "Did you check my blog? I put an entry about it there." That's utterly moronic. If a person feels like writing on a blog, he should go ahead and do it. However, it's not a replacement for talking directly to people who are talking to him.
Anyways, I find myself here starting a blog so I can rant about stupid crap. I'm not going to tell any of my friends this is me. I'm just going to write what I think here in anonymity. I feel like that's the only way I can get any sort of satisfaction from blogging.
