Well, it appears I didn’t need to eat the news reporter for breakfast in my
post about blogging and the news.
I saw the story and it wasn’t nearly so blog-blaming as I thought. The only person who got canned because of her blogging activity deserved it. Note to self: when blogging about my job, avoid including pictures of myself with a backdrop of the company logo. Everyone agree? Thought so.
The rest was just about blogs, and brought it’s own hilarity. I can’t believe how many people don’t know what a blog is. I admit I didn’t know a few years ago, but do a google search for practically anything, and you’ll discover they’re every frickin where now. I have to admit they got some entertaining answers though. So, according to your average dude on the street, a blog is:
- a bog,
- a giant glitch,
- a big log,
- a brain fart (“When I can’t think of something, I have a blog”).
or last but not least,
I am relieved that a few people actually knew what a blog was, but….oh me oh my. But then again, they always seem to have dumbass radar when sent out to do street talk segments, so one can pray that that’s all it is. But maybe the guy who called blogs big glitches was on to something. Just land on some of our stuff and…well, maybe he’s right.
