Miscellaneous Monday Musings
And they don’t always have anything to do with beading or jewelry making or art in any way.
There is one blog I follow by a woman who drives an 18 wheeler for a living. Now that is a job I would never think about doing but she writes an interesting blog about her life on the road.
Then there is the one by the career adviser with Aspergers who is married to the farmer. Now that is a blog that is NEVER dull!
Oh and I can’t forget about the doomsday writer who is counting down the days until we run out of oil. He calls it Peak Oil and reading his blog is like watching the first “Terminator”. A most depressing vision of the future. But I keep going back every Monday for more. I make no excuses.
I don’t really like the blogs that are always trying to sell me something or give me something if I post here and post there. I have stopped following those as I simply don’t have the energy for them.
I am also finding that I enjoy connecting with people through their blogs more than through facebook. There is something rather unerving about facebook. I am not sure what it is that bothers me so much about it but I do think it has a lot to do with privacy or lack thereof. When I leave a comment on a blog, I feel like I am speaking directly to that person and no one else. But on Facebook, I am speaking to everyone. I don’t really like that. It feels very invasive to me.
I like having my blog connected to facebook so that people can see my latest post but that is about the only useful thing I can find about it. Oh and it is nice to know that some of my oldest friends are still around and to see what they are doing. Other than that I am going to stick to blogs. If you have any favorites that you would like to share, I’d love to hear about them!
