Doing a bit of blurfing, which took me to some very popular blogs I had not visited in a while, but I'm not gonna mention any names...
I saw why I hadn't been going there...
I have noticed over six months or so that some of the more famous blogs have become increasingly vapid. Bland. Dull. Uninteresting. Vacant of content. Jejune. Yet they get squillions of hits a day and everyone seem to love them still. Mind you, people like "The DaVinci Code". People like blood sausage. I think these blogs are more famous for what they USED to be like than for what they are producing now, and that the people going there are reliving their fond remembrances of blogs past, like revisiting somewhere fondly recalled from your childhood.
Either that or they are being paid to go there. That's the only reason I'd go.
Sigh. I think everyone's getting blogged out. Water-blogged. Bloagted. Disblogusioned. Deblogerated. MTV Unblogged. Blogstalgic. They need to be Reinblogerated. (Trying to get a neologism like "blurfing" going...)
p.s. Last night I couldn't get on to ANY blogspot site. Not even blogger.com. Anyone else notice/experience this?

Good thing I'm not famous or the fact that you left a comment today would have me off to Wala Wala to drown my "Bland, Dull and Uninteresting" butt in a pint or three...lol
