Blogging Marathon

Ever blogged for hours non-stop? Ever blogged for one whole day or one whole night? Blogging seems to be so in and lots of people are eager to join the 'in' crowd. Yeah, there are those who create a blog, write a super short post, then forget all about it. I doubt they forgot about it. They probably just don't care about it anymore.

Then there are those who blog and blog and blog. They blog like crazy. =D I think I am becoming like one of them now. Well, I am free now. And there is nothing good on TV. I'm too tired to read too. What else is there to do? Blog!

It's easier to type on a computer than to hold a pen and write on paper. Faster and more effective. Paper takes up too much space. On the other hand, the computer will never take up too much space. It just rests snugly in a corner of the room.

So, if anything interesting happened, most people now would just write about it on their blogs for the whole world to read. These people would rather write in their blog than tell anyone what happened face to face. I hope you get what I mean. As a result, many bloggers depend too much on the Internet to stay connected. Umm, yeah....they are connected but to who? I think they are only and pathetically connected to the computer screen. Not to real people around them. In fact, some shy away from real people. That is just sad.

Look what happened after the earthquake in Taiwan. So many idiots complained about how slow the Internet connection was, how they couldn't update their blogs, how they couldn't unleash their feelings of anguish, anxiety, blah, blah, blah.... They couldn't care less for the poor victims of the earthquake or those who died. They also didn't care about the floods in Johor. What do they care about? Their blogs. Their un-updated blogs.

At least the connection is better now. Hope they are happy.

That's why there is an even called the Blogathon, where you blog for 24 hours straight posting once every 30 minutes.

Happens around July or August every year and it's meant for bloggers to raise money for their favourite charities.

It's good, I've had 4 Blogathons so far in the past and I can tell you one thing about it, everything you knew about blogging changes after that. :)
