My god, blogs.

Blogs are the kiss/curse of the Internet right now. Everyone has a blog. There are blogs about cats. Blogs about dogs. Blogs about blogs. There are blogs about how to make blogs, and blogs about how to read blogs.

There are blogs about food, and about culture and about music. There are blogs about sex, blogs about sexuality and blogs about the sexification of blogs.

There are blogs about news and blogs about people’s mundane lives (this one). There are blogs about psychology and physiology and biology. Blogs about feet, for crying out loud.

Does anyone else yearn for something original? Is all creativity in the world now reduced to cleverly copying your neighbour?

I’ve had it. Hypocracy? It’s just a word.

Things to think about: Gin & Tonic, Hula Hoops, the wheel of a skateboard, a manky teddy bear and a shoe that’s not just comfortable, but also attractive.

I’m trying to figure out a unit of measure to rank your blog entry on a scale of irony.

On a scale of one to irony, this blog entry is a solid sarcastic.

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.
