Having my own weblog
has caused me to start looking at the countless others out there with a new interest. It occurred to me very early on that I’ll never get the design kudos or underground-links-cred that most of these blogs seem to possess quite matter of factly, but what I really love is the sense of personality each blogger demonstrates in spades. I never particularly liked personal web pages, partly because they’re usually stiff and impersonal, but mainly because it never occurred to me to care. But the information-overload of blogging, mixing humor, irrelevance and touching intimate details creates holograms of these real people which, accurate or not, are incredibly compelling. What is disturbing though is how all these people seem to know and reference eachother, sending me further into my spiralling “nobody cares” blog-apathy. Plus, a lot of discussion about DHTML. Current favourite blog: Psionic.nu
, though I expect that’s because of a shared love of Buffy.
