On blogging….

Posted on

Maybe I’ve looked at too many young mother yuppie California girl blogs or maybe it’s just cynical Sunday and I’m still stuck with this nasty cold but this blog is on the self centeredness of blogging, she says as she spouts off on her own blog….  But really, how many people really CARE about photos of YOU and your endless prattle about what YOU and your children are doing every minute of the freakin’ day?!

Just this morning I happened upon a blog where the mother hired a professional photographer to come photograph her with her shirt unbuttoned down to her waist with her blonde hair blowing in the breeze and then a double photo shoot with her teenage daughter where they both wore short shorts and cowboy boots.  PULEEZE… I mean, IS THERE A POINT TO THIS?  Because, for me, I could care less about it all… Which may lead you to ask, why are you writing on your OWN blog?  Great question!  Because Val and Ellen told me to?  Because I want to see if anybody at all reads it?  Because it’s social media and the thing to do in the new millennium?  All of the above?  Maybe I’ll just add some photos of ME or my GRANDCHILDREN or of my CAT.  Like anybody really cares?  This blog, Elly, is for you.  Because you find me amusing when I’m snarky…

  1. Anytime you have a pic of Zoey Monet in a pink car seat, you simply MUST put it on your blog! And yes, your snarkiness is one of the personality traits I admire most about you. You are blogging because: You. Have. Something. To. Say. Your opinions about books, bookstores, e-readers (get snarky, my friend,) authors, trends, readers, writers and ANYTHING that happens at FoxTale are riveting, and we wait with baited breath for your posts on said topics. You are blogging because you can. Be sure to hit the little Facebook icon when you post, and soon all your myriad friends will know you’re out there and will subscribe to get your deepest and darkest thoughts. And if you want the Woodstock police force to read your blogs, keep including pics of yourself in evening attire. Maybe that grey number you emailed me??? Blog on, sister!

  2. SNARK is good! And this new blog is like any of those social media thingies; it takes time. More posts, more exposure! (Clicking which tags to apply to posts helps somewhat, too.) 😉 Now get on over to IndigoFox.net and tell us about the cool stuff over there!
