Blog surfing part 3

I took Aseppala's advice and looked into the How to Blog link. It was really funny to read since it was outlining the seemingly trivial aspects of blogging and applying them as rules. I like that the author embraces his ideas as substantial guidelines without taking himself too seriously.
#26. dont be afraid to come across as an asswipe. own your asswipeness.

I also read the comments people left on on his post (191!), and many people were very appreciative of his perspective on blogging. One woman wrote "There are so many immature people out there who need to know what a post should look like, and how to write. Blogging is so much about learning to express yourself better, every day." A little intense...

As simplistic as it was, the weblog I could not stop reading was Overheard in New York which apparently was made into a book of conversations overheard by people in New York. It had some pretty hilarious conversations, as well as interactions that give you so much insight into the strange nature of people. There were several posts of conversations betweens idiotic teenage girls, the kind of dialogs that just make you shake your head in disbelief. For example,

Tween girl #1, trudging through snow: What's with this weather? It's so annoying.
Tween girl #2: Yeah. Weren't we having global warming? Let's stop recycling or something.

Another enjoyable post was between a group of "thugs."

It may be just for the easily amused.
