So misguided. This woman is getting paid to write, right? Clearly, she's never read a (properly written) blog before in her life. You know, using tired stereotypes and clichés as a basis for your weak argument is fine and all - just not what a writer for a nationally distributed, highly reputable newspaper should be presenting. What's next...all male bloggers are balding, paunchy men in their late 30's, living in mom's basement?
Real blogs have credibility, and are based on subject matter - not just a medium where:
Opinionizing in public is a form of mental jousting, where the aim is to out-reason, out-argue or out-yell your opponent.
No, we write about specific topics, backed by well-researched arguments. We have a story to tell, and a distinct viewpoint. And we do it all without being paid.
I have a lot of female friends who blog. Each is unique, and is subject matter oriented. So to paint all bloggers with such a vicious broadstroke is not only ignorant, it's laughable. The hack continues that:
Perhaps you've noticed that most of the comments on these websites are not terribly sophisticated. They contain a large insult quotient, even when they come from people with advanced degrees. They remind me of nothing so much as a bunch of 12-year-olds holding peeing contests in the snow.
I encourage this
