I’ve found a good blog. This New York Times article
led me to this blog:www.dooce.com
Dooce.com is run by a woman named Heather Armstrong, who was fired from her job for writing about her co-workers online. The lesson I learned from reading a few of her backlogged, pink-slip-worthy posts, is that it’s probably a bad idea to complain about my co-workers on this blog. So, for instance, I probably shouldn’t mention a certain reporter’s love of the Ghostbusters
soundtrack, despite the fact that it includes a song by Air Supply. Check.
Also, The New York Times
said that 40,000 people read dooce.com to for Armstrong’s updates on her stay-at-home life. I find it amusing that someone can get 40,000 readers by writing accounts of every-day activities, yet there are thousands (millions?) of struggling writers out there who can’t get 20 people to read their poems about tulips. But really, who cares about tulips anyway? Well, maybe the Dutch.
