Blogs: Stupid and Confusing?

…I thought [blogs] were stupid and confusing, but now that I have my own, I think its very fun, and its not that hard, I do suppose I’ll get used to it and perhaps eventually I will become and expert. Its nice to know I am not the only one that thought it was confusing. —Lori Rupert, commenting on “I Think I’ve Got It!” —Blogs: Stupid and Confusing?

In the past couple of days, I’ve unleashed about 30 newbie bloggers on the world. Most of their first posts are of the “Gosh this is new but kind of fun” variety, but Lori’s stood out because of its honesty. It’s good to remind myself every so often just how different and… well… freaky blogs can be, especially to people who aren’t familiar with the genre.
