The Bloggiest of Them All

mirrorMirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who’s the bloggiest of them all?

Why, YOU are, kari-on.com with your hip new look, features, and widgets (whatever those are)!

It’s a blog-eat-blog world out there and you gotta get with the times or get off the web.

I’m just one of more than 50,000,000 blogs out there—that’s right, 50 MILLION!

Any shmo can set up an account and start a blog so, as the saying goes, “Everybody is special and, therefore, nobody is special.”

Everybody is a writer, philosopher, photographer, and designer these days.

Never before have there been so many windows for us to press our noses up against, so how do we choose who’s online window to snot swipe on a regular basis?

In my desperate attempt to be bloggier to try and generate more interest and followers to keep up with the staggering pace of the online world, I’ve spent waaaaaaaay too much time blog stalking to see what’s the haps in the blog-o-sphere.

As I surfed through the endless array of blogs from the My Beautiful Life mommy blogs with arsty photography of chic but understated sense of style for decor, hair, make-up, do-it-yourself projects, crafting, recipes, precious babies, darling kids dressed super trendy, fabulous event planning and hosting with uber-creative foods, decor, invites, to the Online Therapy blogs of “I started this blog as an outlet after my divorce” or “as part of my AA program,” or “to chronicle my weight loss journey,” or “my struggle with infertility,” or “through the adoption process,” or “to declare and defend my sexual orientation” or “dealing with my tragic loss/accident/medical condition/surgery, to the Soap Box blogs of hypertensive extremists for everything from politics to sustaining life with goats milk, I started to ponder an important question:

WHO FREAKIN’ CARES ABOUT ANY OF THIS?

I know this is an ironic question for a blogger, but I think it stemmed mostly from techno-fatigue.

However, it did make me realize just how lucky I am to have followers of any kind on my blog because life is crazy, and everyone is busy, and much of the planet population is trying to put together an interesting window display of some sort or another to gather attention.

I’m no Snow White, or Snow Write, for that matter.

I’m hardly the bloggiest of them all, but I hope you like my funky new format and that you enjoy what you find here.

Your nostril smear means a lot to me.
