I was going to get on a pagan network. I was all excited when I saw the little linky thing on the side of someone's blog. I went to the page to check out who else was on there. That's when I realized I was a snob.
I've posted about my blog issues before. I hate if you don't post the whole blog- why should I have to push a button to read more? I also can't stand when the text is tiny, or if there are no pictures. But I realized something else.
I don't like single minded blogs. If you post about your religion and only your religion every day, it gets boring. Just like I don't want a recipe every day. If I did, I'd go to a recipe blog. Not that I don't like recipe blogs- everyone needs a recipe now and again.
I don't like people who seem fake. If you use terms or post items just because other people you want to be like do, that just stinks. I want to know the real you. Hyperbole and a Half had this issue not long ago- someone actually stole her words and reposted them because they were not sure how to be authentic. Same goes for if you post a jello recipe just because everyone else is, or just because it defines your label as jello-boss.
I don't like the whole pagan: choose a weird name game. I know, fluffy bunnies (some will understand this term- others won't sorry), think the "burning times, ahem, make them choose a new name- but that's a pile of boohookey. Others are still in the broom closet. Others like the pomp and circumstance of rituals and name changes. If it's authentically you- go for it! If it's not, everyone can tell! Especially if the name you chose is Pixie Moonbeam or Raven Willowtree.
I also am very sad that some blogs I have read are no longer posting. I get all excited about the blog- then bam! they disappear. The latest baby blog I posted to is really a dead blog. I wish the internet could forget dead blogs. I found quite a few dead blogs on the network I was gonna get on.
I couldn't figure out how to post the stupid little linky button thingy. But then, it might be because I had already blended this mojito for myself:
anyhoo! what I am saying is, I love you just the way you are. You are perfect. Though I's still like to have those "followers" who don't have a blog posted to their google reader account let me know who they are. I hope you still love me even though I used the "w" word, and even though I am a blog snob.
seriously! I read those blogs you see over there-> because I dig reading their random thoughts.
