Amateur Bloggers: Friends Give It A Try

Well below the upper crust of bloggers and outside the walled gardens of MySpace and Facebook, there are millions of smaller bloggers who use their blogs not to break news, or count RSS feeds, but instead, to chronicle their lives and offer amusing anecdotes.

While my Web intake is dominated by those discussing technology, politics and sports, there are a few friends who I've enjoyed seeing crop up. Some, I knew offline well before they went online. A pair here are keeping the personal home page alive whom I've never met but feel I know well.

Today, we share half a dozen in no particular order...

  1. Thanks Louis, I really appreciate it!

    Great idea on providing a 'Can't Miss' post link, that really helps a lot in getting right to the good stuff for people who are interested.

  2. O! How sweet of you...I'm absolutely tickled! (In the Blogging world, I'm actually known as FarrahKhan, thank you.)

    And I wouldn't say I'm so much about celebrities as general awesomeness in it's many forms of entertainment.
    I'm so SO glad to have you as a reader...as a man who has impeccable social graces when it comes to women- what do you have to say about the latest controversy?

  3. Amateur bloggers are like amateur bands. A lot of them are really bad but some are diamonds in the rough or just plain diamonds. You know, how those bands are always cooler before they get popular? That's how blogs are, too.
