Mainstream

My brother Ralph has informed me of his intention to blog. This, of course, brought me to a feeling called surprise. You see, he has always maintained this position: that anything mainstream is repulsive. I, too, agree with this on certain grounds, but on how I come to agree with something is really not my concern in this post. Let us not digress.

Though he has not officially started posting (for he lacks the knowledge to do so), he has started asking me favors as to the how-to's of blogging. I told him it's easy...just follow instructions. Do as you are told. Understand what you read. I think I'll help him anyway. Essentially, that's about it.

But his interest in blogging is perhaps a reflection of the evolving feelings of people all over the world. More and more are writing, posting, and publishing their blogs. And I'm not saying that's a bad thing.

On the contrary, I think blogging is a means to record your thoughts such that others can have the chance to read it. A friend put it this way, "It's better to be read than to write." I don't share this idea, though it gives me a feeling of fulfillment whenever friends would tell me that they had read my posts.

I'll tell you what my brother's blog is as soon as he starts it. I want to view yours, too.

  1. Hi, Lance!

    Hmm... I don't really think blogging is a mainstream thing since the activity is done by all kinds of people, not only a single, prevailing type. Plus there are also many different kinds of blogs (photo, web, diary, parody, etc.)...

    I like your spot, I think I'll visit more often. :) Take care, Lance, and God bless you.

  4. im not mean, im just saying what is true. and in claiming that i am mean, you are actually agreeing with me. ur statement implies that i am right and i shouldn't have uttered those words (out of respect? oh, i dont knw. m not sure how ur mind works).
