this is just the meaningless drivel i was looking for!

I generally refrain from comment on the latest news about weblogs. There are many more interested, qualified people who can actually say something useful about those things.
But, I was struck - and amused - by my own reaction to a CNN article about the mainstreaming of blogs as it was delivered to me via BrozNews; today.
Oh goody. Blogging has gone "mainstream." More web sites describing peoples' boring lives.
At which I, of course, take great umbrage.
And then I say (to myself, fortunately):
My life is not boring! Who are you to say, O Great News Curmudgeon? And your site is rather a blog, too, so - bah!
Very silly. It gets better!
And then CNN says:
Terra Lycos last month introduced publishing tools to help people launch their own blogs. America Online is expected to offer a similar service to its 35 million subscribers later this year.
To which I say:
Oh, goody. Push-button publishing for people who don't even know how to open Internet Explorer.
The future of blogging: we'll all be full of shit and convinced that our way is better and that we're much, much smarter than all the other kids.
