Blogging has taken off.

I’m seeing bloggers featured in News papers…(Ok so far only the metro, but some blogs do purport to be famous and have people holding banners of their blogs in relatively odd places…."Pink is the new blog" comes to mind.)

Blogging is getting dangerous, check out yeah story of poor blogger in Iran who has been jailed for criticizing the government, poor sod got 14 years, for a post, Imagine that!

Blogging is becoming an institution. Soon some art alec at UFT or some random university is going to introduce a course called the Art of Blogging, or Descending into the minds of Bloggers, or Blogging as advertising revenue, or Bloggers are we or Blogging at the 21st century….

I’ve been blogging for an entire year now, and I know stuff. I know how to write snazzy posts, obsessively check site meter, and post friendly yet interesting comments on other peoples sites which cleverly lure them into reading this blog. I know the potential of advertising on blog sites, I mean how much do I want those funky “Go Fug Yourself” T-shirts???

I therefore nominate myself to teach at least one class at UFT or any other venerable institution that will have me. And I think you guys should volunteer too, we created the blogsphere, we should not let these greedy sap heads control it. We should be making the big bucks.
So Please go ahead and suggest names for our courses.....

It's true, there really is an art to it and you do it very well. I on the other hand could provide a guest lecture on consistency by showing my own blog in the "what not do" segment.

I thought I was the only one who wanted a Go Fug Yourself shirt. Maybe we can purchase in bulk ;-)

there's something disturbing about those superblogs though--I mean 100+ comments on average for crazyauntpurl--how? How is that possible?

100+ comments? i aspire to consistently getting 10 comments, thats my goal.

If you ever need a guest lecturer for your class I'm available. Actually I thinking of a whole semester blogger curriculum right now.

I guess I could teach a class on how to fake your own death and get the blogger community in an uproar.
