Blogging is stupid; go be a human being

Not me but Heather Burns at The Pine Log writes –

Blogs aren’t just stupid, they are crippling our social skills, and there is nothing better than human interaction, trust me.

Believe it or not, there is a world outside of the computer. No joke, it has trees, popcorn and drive-thru liquor stores.

Blogging is worse than being on facebook. Nobody wants to know if you have cramps today or if you sold 1,000 pounds of Nicaraguan cocaine to Chico and the man.

The people in your life like friends and family do care if you show up to the party and do a minute keg-stand or date that really cool guy from Nicaragua who is friends with Chico and the man.

To lay it all on the line, blogging is a waste of time. Why spend time telling strangers your innermost thoughts when you could be out making memories with those you care about most?

    Blogging is good. But like everything else – “too much of anything is bad”!
    People (especially Software techies) think the computer and the internet as the only pasttime in the world. They spend time writing blogs and neglect the physical and social activities in life! Hope this article opens at least some of our lives!

    So true. The thought of strange people lurking in one’s blogs is a scary enough to make you want to close shop and hide.

    Not quite true! It definitely helps people who have to be at work for very long hours for whatever reason and have sometime for non-work related activities too. Obviously, no trees, popcorn or drive-thru liquor stores will be of help at that time..
