"What you've learned from blogging." is the question of today's carnival. Indeed I have learned a lot. Why and how people blog and about what they write. It is a very large range of all kind of subjects. The best way to find it out and to have fun is : click on "next blog" . That's what I have done last weekend, and you can read here the result.
I don't know why, but last weekend I became curious about my "neighbor's" blog. I had never done this before and so I clicked on "next blog".
My neighbor was a 29 year old guy who asked the whole world why nobody loves him and even his girlfriend had left him. Sadly I had to admit, that I didn't know either.
Now my curiosity woke up, and continued
Next blog : a girl writing about a shopping day in New York. Quite nice, I even know now, when she had to go to the toilet ! After 3 shops. That is exactly what the world wants to know.
The next blog was a just freshly baked father who wrote and showed pictures about his new born son. Very cute indeed.
A very religous black template jumped in my eyes. I admired a beautiful dressed Mary with a lot of jewelry holding a man-baby with a crown on one arm and a scepter in the other hand. Apparently a very rich one. I didn't read it though.
On the next one, a girl wanted to be Loïs and making love with Superman. OK, why not but with which one, the old one or the new ?
The next blog informed me about what a blogger all would leave behind. I noticed it was nothing special not even a few € or $ but she was very worried about what her blog would become the day she died. Honestly, I never thought about it. Now I worry.
On the next blog a guy wrote that he often dreams of trains. Of trains his age ? He was 26 years old. I wondered if it wouldn't be better for him to dream about Paris Hilton for example ? Even she is less boring than trains !
And then somebody wanted to convince all of us bloggers that Jesus really exists. Had he doubts ? His template was also black. Did all religous blogs have black templates, I wondered and then why ? An interesting question for a psychiatrist !
The following blogger described how he mowed the lawn and how good he did that and that a sparrow watched him. He didn't mention the height of the lawn or the length of one grass blade. But he added that he always did this job with a gun in his pocket, because "you never know".
Then came a blog about elephants. Very interesting, he writes about elephants and I write about cats. The only notable difference between us is that elephants take more space and are not sitting on your lap.
I clicked "next" A nun !!! I didn't know that nuns are blogging. She wrote in her blog milewide prayers. I gave up and went to the next, where I learned how to knit a shawl. I don't wear any and don't like knitting, so I switched to the next . The next one was extremely interesting ! I learned that ultrasons affects a pregnant mouse's brain ! Didn't know that, must be a lack of my general knowldedge.
Then another black template, this time a priest, informed the whole world that the catholic church is the best and we should all go to Rome and see the Pope. OK I will think about that. Although I have already been in Rome, I never thought about such an important thing as visiting the pope ! It's a shame, I only visited the city and the monuments.
Then I arrived on a blog of a depressed person, (she said so), who only could live with and support mice. Yes, that's exact, mice. Quite unusual but when you are depressed why not mice ? I prefer cats.
But there also were very touching once. A young woman who wrote about her fear against men because she had been raped at 11. Or a 60 year old nurse who had been in Vietnam and Libanon during the wars and the horrors she had seen there or another who suffered from feeling excluded because her father was black.
After a while I had enough and started thinking. Why the heck people sometimes are talking about subjects which are not even subjects ? The knitters, recepee writers, elephant lovers (or cats) lovesicks or depressives even the religous once I can understand. I should ask Freud. But he is dead and in his books bloggers were not yet born.
You see sometimes it's very interesting to click on your neighbor's blog. But I have to admit, it takes time !
A good tip for those who live in very cold areas.
