Noooo!

A boy at a party told me last night that "blogging is basically just online scrapbooking".

Great, you can take the girl out of the Wasatch Front but apparently you can't take the Wasatch Front out of the girl.

I refuse to resemble that!

I had a guy at a party tell me once that "people who blog have no lives because it takes too much time."

I figured he was just computer illiterate for saying that.

Allison said...

For what it's worth; there are blogs that fit that description but yours is not one of them.

Consider phrasing the encounter like this:

"So this douche told me about his inability to understand that the dying art of letter writing has been resurrected in a vastly more elegant, organized, and collaborative format that is of yet to be named somthing much better than BLOGGING. I pre-emptively ceased any and all pining in his general direction"

But hey it's your story.

Wow, my husband literally said that just a couple hours ago in the car!

But in his defense, he was actually telling me how appreciative he was that I was keeping ours up.

Hey, on that note... You should know that thanks to YOU and your awesome blog, a couple months ago I started renting from netflix Friday Night Lights, and my husband thinks it's the greatest show out there. Every time a new disc arrives, he watches the entire thing from beginning to end without budging. He has your blog to thank.

megan-that. is. awesome. and why i love you

and i'm with you girls-perhaps there are scrapbookesque blogs but this ain't one 'em!

This is a dirty lie. I hate scrap-booking and I enjoy blogging on occasion.

Amen to all of it...and, now that I have friends who make their living through some form of scrapbooking or another (designing paper, writing articles, etc.), I have to also add that scrapbooking is much, much bigger than the Wasatch front.

Having said that...your blog is not scrapbooky at all. It's more like an excellent editorial column.

And, for my tonsillectomy time, I'm thinking about renting FNL so I have something to watch.

hmmmm...I do indeed cut-n-paste a bunch of crappola on my blog...but I refuse to add a doily border and/or snow flakes.

Some people scrapbook blog, bringing cool things from obscurity to common knowledge

Some people use their blogs to show how cute their kids are.

Some people use it to hone their writing.

Some people use it to keep in touch with loved ones.


To lump all blogging into one stereotype is lame with a captial L!

journaling maybe but scrapbooking no...tell him to shove it... :)

Rookie Dad said...

I guess that shows you the type of blogs he is used to reading.

Please. I WISH it were that way! I haven't glued a photo to paper since the late 90's, and I really, REALLY need to.

I wonder if all of those angry political pundints know they have been tricked into scrapping?

Extra punchings for that guy.
