BLOGS: An Affirmation That You're Doing Good Things for the World's Greater Good
AS SOME OF YOU MIGHT KNOW, as part of my job, I read hundreds of blogs a day. While that sounds like a nice gig -- and it is -- there are some days that the greater blogosphere gets lazy. There's either not much out there to write about, or there's some sort of blogger malaise where writing is sloppy or just plain uninspired from blog to blog to blog.
(December was a bad month for bloggers in my view. Perhaps it was final exams for the student bloggers, or holiday parties for the blog-at-work types or perhaps the run-up to the holidays sucked out all the blog cheer for our blogger cynics. There's no good measure for this, of course.)
BUT THEN AGAIN, sometimes there's blogger gold out there. Earlier this week, I pulled a quote from ElGuapoDC from this post for Express' Blog Log. ElGuapoDC is a great, entertaining writer and I'm glad I stumbled across his blog in my daily exploration of the greater blogging world.
In another ElGuapoDC post about how the Columbia Heights CVS locks up its condoms (linked to by DCBlogs) I came across this comment:
Dupont's CVS only locks up the Crest White Strips.... damn you discriminatory CVS.It's stuff like that that's a reminder that despite the large amount of blog information I consume on a daily basis that's pretty much worthless, there's pure gold out there to discover.
Maybe your appearance, and subsequent fame from the article about you in The Express, El Guapo, will help the fine latinos of DC to free the condoms.
