A Blog Slog

Tonight I decided to use the "Next Blog" feature on Blogspot and viewed 50 different blogs. Even commented on a few of them, the first time I've ever done that. Of the 50, 18 were some form of advertising or merely links to websites. Another 11 were written in a foreign language. Other than English, that is. One blog apparently had the same post in English and Spanish. They were griping about the Brachial Plexis Network.

That left 20 blogs to browse. Some were only pictures. One had only poems. There was one touching blog about a young girl with cancer. Stories about sick children sadden me. They are so brave, so deserving of life, yet so helpless. Many very personal blogs. I think it helps people to talk about their problems in life.
