There are so many blogs in the world, and this is one of them.
As such, there inevitably comes a time when my musings must finally muse over the act of blogging itself.
A blog about blogging, you say, how pointless.
But that's just it, isn't it. So many blogs I find have navel-gazing sadoids writing about the act of writing about themselves.

I'm speed blogging tonight!! Two in an
hour. Well, told you I'd get over it. Looks like I'm back on the emotional roller coaster. Alright. Motivated now, I think! Feeling better already. "Gotta try harder", right? Anyway, I guess I just will. Time to fix my wreck of a life :D. Should be... interesting.
Ahhh life. It's got the best graphics of any RPG I've seen
What's the point?! Honestly. I admit that one could call my blog - probably any blog - narcissistic. But really... writing about writing? How does the second post to your blog saying that you've posted a second post constitute the second post itself? That's just infinite regression/recurrence. Like so:
Wow, I've posted 9 posts so far today, I'm going strong! ^_^
You won't believe it, but this is my eighth post today - what a record!! ROFLMAO
Hey, guess what... 7th post, I've got a really h4x0rz micro at blogging! w00t!
Sixth post - L33t!!!
And so on.
There are, of course, blogs that purposely mock such blogging (I'll try and find a link, but I may not); there are others that just do it unintentionally...

The "ridiculous raw youth" - ooh, he's so raw

Terabytes and terabytes of information distributed on thousands of storage units all around the globe in dozens of countries, more information that any person could ever absorb in their entire life, with the information pool growing at a functionally exponential rate - and all of it complete and totally worthless drivel.
You give a fool a microphone and he becomes a politician; give him a television camera and he becomes an advice panelist; give him a blog and he becomes a self-publicized Celebrity, thinking that what he had for breakfast should make the breath catch in your lungs.
If somebody reads my blog, I want there to be the chance that they might be changed and benefited. I want to know that they might come away richer for the experience than when they arrived. I want my blog to reveal pieces of myself, bring glory to God and entertain and inspire the reader.
Writing blogs about drivel is like playing The Sims: you set life aside for a moment so that you can think about living, rather than just living it in the first place.
God Bless, be edified.
