The 10 Habits of Highly Annoying Bloggers can be found here. To be honest, I’m not sure why this guy put so much energy and thought into this. If you don’t like someone’s web site, don’t go there. If someone has a different opinion on what a web site should be, so be it. Who cares? I like the idea of having a weblog, but sometimes I find the “blogging community” to be really elitist and, frankly, quite irritating. I have a weblog because I enjoy writing things down, things I want to remember. And I like having a site to share with family and friends. What’s the harm there? Sheesh. Lighten up, people.
My grandfather told me a funny story tonight after dinner. When he was a child, he went to Sunday dinner at his grandparents’ house every week (much like my family and I do – what a great tradition). His grandparents had a dry house, where they dried fruit and vegetables before the days of electric food dehydrators. One Sunday, he and his cousins starting gorging on dried apple slices. They apparently went way overboard. Anyway, after running around and playing for a while, they got really thirsty and hit the spring house, where they drank their fill. He said he never had a stomachache like that before or after. Every single one of cousins bloated up and felt horrible.
