Heh. I love my blogroll. I love that some people are witty, and others are brutally honest, and still others (or, to be fair, many of the same) curse almost as much as I do.
But I think what I love the most about my blogroll is the diversity. Sure, there aren’t many blogs on my list dedicated to politics, religion, or the life=and-death rigors of high school life — these are subjects about which I know or remember little, and it seems unlikely that my particular brand of blogginess would appeal to the authors of such sites. But outside those parameters, I’ve got a wealth of people from different backgrounds, geographies, opinions, styles, and outlooks on life.
I was reminded of this just today, as I made the rounds around a few sites, and saw the exact same item commented on by two people on my blogroll. Commented on, yes, but rather… differently. To say the least. I’ll show you.
(But before I do, I’d just like to ask that you be extra-specially nice to both folks linked below, no matter on which end of the spectrum — or in the vast, yawning ‘middle ground’ between — you happen to fall. They’re both fantastic bloggers, and really nice people — I just get a kick out of seeing the two opinions juxtaposed like this. No harm, ill will, or fun-poking is intended or implied. Promise. If anything, maybe it’ll scoot a little traffic both their ways.)
Okay, now that I feel I’ve sufficiently disclaimerated, here’s a pair of short posts that describe just exactly how two of my bloggy buddies felt about the holiday-inspired decorations in effect yesterday on their Google toolbars:
Ah, that nutty, quirky, schizophrenic blogroll of mine! Did I mention how much I love it? Man, it must be Valentine’s Day — I just can’t help myself — I love it!Permalink | 3 Comments
