According to cnet.com a blog is created every half second, with over 1 million posts every day. And according to NITL there are about 3 million blogs in existence.
So I decided to start browsing blogger, and some of the blogs out there, and see what other people are writing about. And after doing so, I realized I don't give myself enough credit. And why the hell aren't more people reading this blog, because compared to some of the crap I found, I provide some damn good content!
Let's look at some of the other weblogs I compete with for readership:
Nate and Jess - "We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For more information on our faith, visit www.mormon.org" Do I need to say anything else or is the description they provide enough.
Hubbard Studio - "Oh, a photography site" I thought, "That might be interesting." Well it's not!
Nonsense or pinkchic0404 - on March 26, you can see a picture of a kitten with a stuffed frog on it's head. If it weren't on the head of a cat, I'd call it animal abuse.
(Most of) The Year in Pictures - A low quality, out of focus picture of some trees. It has an orange blur in the background of a train. It's "impressionistic". It could be, it also could be crap, depending on your point of view.
Breathemamabreathe - Look ma, pictures of flowers. like we've never seen that before, I can't wait for the sunset behind some mountains picture I'm sure this blogger is working on.
The Strong Family - "Lezlee, the luckiest stay at home mother, PRN ER RN and wife! Brad, the towns greatest dentist, father and husband! Luke, the cutest one year old rascal who loves trains, blankies and binkies! We are so blessed!" Awwww shucks, how fantastic is that. And look pictures of the baby, how cute, because everyone wants to look at your baby's pictures, I know I do.
I skipped past the foreign language ones, since I only read "American". And I did occasionally stumble on a blog that could be considered interesting, like the photography site SolJourneys. But for the most part, the majority of the blogs I looked at were as interesting as the ones I mentioned. So all you internet savvy, left leaning, pseudo-hippies, add The Cranky Monkey to your RSS feeds today. The grammar might suck, but at least it's interesting to read.
