I read somewhere that there are 70 million blogs. Hey, that's lots! If I wanted to visit and comment on each one that would take me, well I don't have broadband, say...er...I mightn't live long enough!
Then if wanted to get back to each one to see if they responded to my comment and, if they did, were they nice to me, then...no, it's all too much. I feel stressed.
What's the answer then? The world is quickly becoming flooded with blogs. They're like an epidemic, a plague. Soon you won't be able to move without bumping into a blog. Some of them have sharp corners. Some of them have none. Some have substance and some...well...
As I write, in darkened rooms all over the world, more and more people are tapping away at their keyboards, baring their souls or being naughty or peddling hate or promoting peace...well, who knows? Like me, they are hoping that someone is going to read their posts, respond positively.
Hits and comments become their lifeblood, the key to their happiness. They rise early each morning and the first thing they do is to turn on the computer. Then, if they got some positive comments, they kiss their partners and wish them good morning. If they didn't get a single comment or there was a nasty one, a fierce growl suffices. They are truly addicted! They have become servants of an electronic monster which runs their lives.
Thing is, if more than six billion people eventually get computers and each one has a blog that means...my Special Links won't be big enough, I'll never have enough time...the room is spinning...the screen is getting bigger...it's trying to swallow me...
P.S. I've put Comment Moderation back on again. Sorry, but a few people: political, racial or religious extremists, typically play the man and not the ball!
They just can't help themselves!
