Tom nicely misinterprets
my concerns over "anticipating feedback" in article 112 of Blue Lines. Read it anyway. But to clarify: I was actually thinking of his intimate involvement with market research. The practice of finding out what the most amount of people least dislike and serving it up to them in as stale and sanitary a manner as possible is one of the inevitable failings of modern society. I suppose the similar danger with blogs is that through the formulation of a "craft" of blogging, content and links might eventually be doled out like the creativity-devoid market niche mulch blogs are supposed to counter-act. Of course I doubt that that's actually going to happen, but if anyone sees content approval surveys on any blogs, be sure to warn me.
Meanwhile over at Steal This Blog Fred confesses to megalomaniacal ambitions for his fine blog, revealing the shocking truth - that we're all whores - while at the same time arguing that the truth isn't so bad. Then again, Fred's in a boyband, so what do you expect? Regardless though, he speaks the truth. Go visit him, and help him achieve his dream. Fred also tells me to lighten up, so from now on I promise that there shall be no more musings on the state of the blogging world for at least three days. And that's a Skykicking Guarantee!
