Several of the blogs I read on a daily basis are discussing bloghopping or blog linking; following a link on a blogroll (like mine listed to the right) and moving along hopping from blog to blog. There’s apparently some movement underfoot to care about who is linked to whom and why.
I have to admit that in my truly oblivious nature I’ve never really cared about that sort of thing.
I live my life by a handful of rules, one of the top three being “Always be aware of your surroundings.” This involves knowing who can grab your ass at any given time, where the emergency exits are and who has marinated themselves in a god-awful cologne. So it’s not like I’m oblivious to all activity around me. But when it comes to clique-ish stuff I guess I really don’t give a care. I don’t care who’s in or who’s out, unless it’s taking place in a seedy motel room and I’m involved. Calm down, I’m kidding.
I guess I’ve never really cared about who the in crowd is or was, I couldn’t really care less why the girl in high school with the nickname “Weed” was named “weed” (I thought perhaps she grew fast) and I don’t have the energy to brown-nose my way up the corporate ladder. That just comes naturally.
If you follow a link on my blog-roll that you don’t like, well then don’t click on it again. I must have found the blog interesting at one time and perhaps I haven’t updated my links in a while or something. If you find something to be extremely vial, drop me a line and I’ll take a look myself.
Enjoy your trip on the internet. And please remember that if you find something overwhelming, you can always find something else that can surely top it.
