Boring

// September 9th, 2005 // Internets

I’ve realised recently that my blog is boring, not because I lead a boring self employed life, or because I am essentially boring – though both those things are probably true – but because my style of writing is inherently dull! Yes it’s true, I am a really crap writer. I thought about changing this to a podcast, but personally I don’t bother listening to them, so I can’t really assume that you will. So I’ve decided to have a new policy, which is to talk through my blog entries and then just transcribe what I just said! Yes, it’s genius, isn’t it?

Let’s see how that goes.

    poo poo to you. you blog is an important part of my day and never dull. it slots right in between checking the phoenix forums (i’m stalking our fans), being a cynic on nzmusic.com and reading about death on bbc.com (oh and on fridays i like to check http://www.homestarrunner.com to see if there are any new strong bad emails, they are my favourite thing in the world)

    I don’t think your blog is boring. If yours is, then so is mine (geeky stuff with the odd parental interlude), and I can’t be admitting that, can I.

  3. Brena says:

    That’s one of the things about blogging though, it is often about day to day stuff for other day to day people to read because their day to day lives are just the same as or like ours but different enough to make ours worth reading just for the sake of variety. Not boring…

    Are you fishing for compliments Em? Surely not! I want to tell you that I love your blog, and that the biggest problem w. it is that you do not update it hourly! But I won’t ’cause I don’t want to be too nice, what kind of a friend would I be then? A?

    Blogs about lives are great. It’s all about being a voyeur inside someone else’s life.

    Love it. Keep it up.

  6. Martha says:

    Yes, I love your blog too, and I think you’re an excellent writer. However I’d be really interested to read it transcribed as an experiment – sounds edgy.

  7. Lisa says:

    I too enjoy reading your site… and I don’t even know you!

    That came out way creepier than intended. Of course I have the opportunity to delete that but… hey… something… something…

  8. Ditto Alan and Brena’s comments. As a stay at home, work at home (I do library work), sometimes geocaching, new parent-type, there’s comfort in knowing of a parallel, but different, universe a half a world away.

    Plus, you are an intelligent writer.

    Wait a minute, I thought *I* was stalking other Phoenix Foundation fans. Actually, I found Jemsweb before figuring out the family ties.

    Perhaps I am a bit late to comment, since you seem to have already found your reassurance [yay], but I think you should not worry and just be yourself. You haven’t satisfied as many readers as you have by being “boring”. I love to hear all your goings on and for one appreciate the pointers in directions of ‘what’s hot’ or ‘topical’. So yay you!

    Yours is one of the only ones I still read…

    your blog sucks, you are stupid and nobody likes you.

    LOL!
    Rosie fires the first shot in the Blog Wars!

    I look for (and find interest and amusement) in your blog whenever I find time away from watching the rugby league, gilmore girls or australian idol. Tough competition, I know!

    As long as your energy and enthusiasm comes across thru the words (which they do), then that’s enough to hold my interest.
