With internet access so readily available and an abundance of free blog sites enticing aspiring writers, becoming a published author has never been so easy. There should be numerous writers that have something good to say, but lately, I'm needing a magnifying glass to find substance in the words that I read. Sifting through the many shallow and pointless blogs, I am frustrated by the lack of content in what I am looking at and mad at myself for actually waisting my time.
Then there are the social blog sites that try to mimic a community feel, but with topics of 'Do You Drink Tap Water? Or Are You Stuck on a Bottle?' (This is a real discussion, you can't make this stuff up!), the intelligence aspect is simply not there. If you happen to come across a discussion that has any umph to it, commenting with clever use of words usually indicates that you are smart, or so you would think. But behold!...Smart commenting is unappreciated by those who are, well, mediocre. They just don't get it and are offended when you put some value to what is being said. Maybe I should offer them my magnifying glass!
"Waiter! Refill please!"
