Speaking of TV and pop culture, what is the deal with all of these reality shows featuring the families of the famous? I vaguely knew there were a few out there, but when flipping through the channels last night, I came across Meet the Lohan Blo-hans and The Fruit of Hulk Hogan's Steroidal Loins; the first starring the siblings and long-faced mom of Lindsay Lohan and the second being the daughter of a fake wrestler famous in the 80s. Who gives a crap about these people? Or the Osbournes or the Kardashians or Haylie Duffie as the wooden emcee for a reality contest show.
There's a feature on blogger where you can choose a "search next" option to see recently updated blogs. I was doing that for awhile yesterday and I'd say that the blogs (at least on blogger) break down in the following ways:
45% Blogs written by stay-at-home mom's posting pics of their families doing various boring things. For instance, in doing a google image search for this post, I stumbled on one with a header featuring three country kids who look like all country kids and the blog was called "My Scrappy Life" (not to be confused with the blog by a woman who does collages out of scraps of things). Many of the mom's list the bible on their top ten list of good reads.
35% Blogs from other countries.
10% Blogs with one post put up by a girl in junior high to show her recent photos with her three friends at Sea World.
Not lots of stay-at-home dad blogs or even blogs by husbands; really not that many dude blogs at all. I guess guys don't write about their days. They specialize. They write about a TOPIC. Or maybe I'm unfairly generalizing. But really, good luck finding blogs by guys who just want to journal about what's going on.
