The blogosphere is an nteresting convergence of various personality types. Kim at Upward Call writes a humorous analogy to the cliques in high school. There's beautiful people, jocks, etc. and that carries over to the blogs. In her analogy I would be a floater.
There is a Floater group of blogs, and here's where I'll reveal my true bias. It's the home school blogs. We home school bloggers cannot be pigeon-holed. We only belong to ourselves.
I guess that's the way I was in high school too. Somethings never change.
According to this blog test I am
|Logical and Principled|
And if someone doesn't like what you write, you really don't care!
Serious and blunt, sometimes people take your blog the wrong way.
But you're a true and loyal friend to those who truly get you.
With only a handful of questions, I think that test is quite accurate too! (Although with a nickname like Spunky how serious can I really be?!?)
Still I think that blogs are interesting because they allow "conversations" to take place that might not happen otherwise. And that, I suppose, is a good thing. Even in high school the jocks had to talk to the nerds every once in a while! As for me, I'll just float in an out offering my logical, principled opinions when I feel like it.
La Shawn Barber is talking about blogging today. She analyzes the academics view of blogging and a professor's view that that blogging will go bust. It's worth a read.
