usually i don’t concern myself with theories on blogging or the nature of the blogosphere. occasionally, i’ll get a comment which comes in via some blog directory like: i lied! another black blogger. which leads me to wonder about segmenting and segregation online.
i only have 2 vague blogging rules. no extremely personal content and pseudo-anonymity. in college, i remember getting the advice to not let anything come out of your mouth that you wouldn’t mind being printed on the front page of a newspaper. not bad advice at all. so consequently, people with whom i have even an inkling of a possibly sustained acquaintance don’t show up here no matter how crazily hilarious or quirky or amusingly naive they are. with exceptions.
this week’s exception will have to wait til tomorrow…
