Blog.. what?!

How come so many blogs I see online are just random pictures people find and they write one or two sentences about them, and some how they are considered a popular and amazing blog? I really just don't understand it. Where are the blogs where people actually spend time thinking about what they want to write and writing intelligently about it. I really wouldn't mind reading more blogs like that, but all the "notable" ones on this website are simply pictures with a couple of words.

So what does this mean? Do bloggers really have short attention spans that they can't focus on reading something for too long? Is that why we need pictures to look at?

Now, I will admit that I enjoy looking at pictures as much as the next person, but I still don't understand how that's considered good blogging! Would people actually start reading mine if I threw in some picture I found online and wrote: "Today I looked at the sun." Would I have the most popular blog on the internet?

For the sake of my sanity, I hope not.

Maybe there's some other server out there that has blogs worth reading. Even journal type blogs aren't that bad, I just don't agree. I'd rather have my personal life that I display on the internet (like that one commercial) be limited to the people in my friends list only. That way not everyone can read it.

Anyway, maybe I'm overreacting but whatever. Bloggers, let's write something intelligent.

The Internet Back When

I'm not really inspired to write in this blog at the moment, or to write anything for that matter. That is a bad thing, because I'm in a creative writing English class right now. My story is due on Wednesday, and I hate it. But I hate all my stories I write. I don't really know why. I just feel as if I could do much better. Plus I have a lot of problems with plot and character development.

However, I have another hour until my class starts, and it's too hot outside to remain out there, so I'm sitting here in the computer lab, trying to amuse myself with the internet.

Back when I was younger, the internet was so much more interesting. There was lots of stuff to do, and chat rooms were free. I admit I spent a lot of time hanging out in chat rooms. I was only about 13 or 14 at the time, so I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Nowadays, I get online, and go through my usual routine of checking the various websites I subscribe to, such as facebook, gmail, hotmail, my university's email, myspace, and the web comic that I like to read from time to time. Come to think of it, I forgot to check facebook.

So someone just walked by me and in the creepiest voice ever (he was talking on the phone) said, "What have you been up to lately?"

So this is really, really pointless, and I apologize. Hopefully sometime soon I'll have an intelligent thought to write in here.
