I was linked to one of my classmate's blogs..which then led me to a list of links of blogs which she followed. After giving them a look over I realized how absolutely terribly boring they all are. They almost all followed the same pattern and had nothing unique to offer. The visuals were absolutely the worst, all coming from the same canon digital rebel probably.
Is this because I have the attention span of a Tumblr user now? Has blogging been around so long that it is nothing special and everyone and their mom has one? I believe it is both...and probably a few other things. I am constantly frustrated by the internet...technology too. My ex-boyfriend and I would always discuss our views on blogs, social networking sites, and whatever else the internet has that allows you to express yourself. Why put it on paper. Nick one day came home from class with a manifesto of the future of photography, how it will all be viewed on computer screens and making prints should become totally obsolete. Aside from drugstore prints I haven't made a print in months. In one class I didn't even bother making digital prints for class, instead I just projected it on a wall, where as probably 2 years ago that option would have been out of question. I have clearly gone off topic but I guess I think the internet is ready to implode upon itself, or else I am patiently waiting for it to do so.
Today I am going outside and will leave the internet behind. I should be concerned that my "tumblarity" is going to drop or something, but I will survive. Maybe when I come home though I am going to go over all the blogs I follow on my blog roll and drop the ones I just don't care about. Don't drop my blog though...I love you all, each and every one of you.
