No Blog Is An Island

I have been watching
the Blogosphere growing,
one leaf,
one page,
one name at a time
at the Blogger Home,
the only place I know
that maxes out
the lil green Google bar at Logarithm Ten.

As from a well of souls
the baby blogs arrive
one per second,
minute by minute,
hour after hour,
as if by magic.

Unrelentingly
the names flow by
in an endless stream.
Each a blogger born.
Each a synapse made.
A single-file parade of blogspot names
Some clever, some lame...
.
..
Hom-hom!
YoungerNext Year,
Peace-Luvit-RightOn!
Shindokht,
a s h l e y,
Oles blogg,
Chroniques d'un Comte,
Sweet Red Delicious,
DickWattsTwats,
Parece Mentira...

..
.
Be a Linker and Father,
Or a Thinker and Mother.

Or both.
Or better yet,
Be a Meme
Be a Viral Idea
Be a Nightmare or a Dream
Of the Global Brain!
.
..
Pajaros de Sal
The Hurting
Redgaards de perfecto
The Penman Ozer Daily
box full of sharp objects
I'm no tai-tai okay?
African Spirit
Cheryl's Tea House
Pixel Paradigm
..

Welcome AA!

And how are the novelists of our tribe doing: telling the truth through fiction, revealing the plot of life, our deepest connection?

Totally excellent, and the Rainbow "Warriors" will, I hope, enjoy your prison system for a LONG time.

Don't you love the sensitive, aesthetic remarks by these jerks, as they boat onto Filipino territory? I would expect they think of your country as a 'sh*tty little 3rd world country" fit only to be a backdrop for their ongoing adventurous twenties...

DJB,

Great, incisive blog. I'll reciprocate your link soon.

Incidentally, Google also has a page rank 10.

I should have posted my previous comment here. At any rate, more power to your blog.

Rizalist said...

Thanks TROSP!

We learn the most from those who disagree with us. I appreciate the lessons!

To ECONBlogger: My link policy is: I have none other than that I link to blogs I like to read. If the feeling is mutual, that is GREATLY appreciated.

You never know, MCL, maybe MLQ read this post last year and learned to read Confessions with a more appreciative and less dismissive eye. My karma has been generally good!
