Respect the Blog

Shh! Be vewy, vewy quiet. I'm at the gastrointerologist's. I probably won't be back till tomorrow (here, anyway).

Till then, there's a post at Don Mills Diva I'd like you all to read, if you haven't already. She's speaking out against the unfair treatment of bloggers. I didn't know I wasn't being treated unfairly or unkindly until she said so, but now I know it's true.

Those of us who take our blogging seriously demand we be respected as bloggers. Not as journalists. As bloggers. I also demand a quart of chocolate ice cream. And a Whopper (I haven't eaten in two days - I'm very hungry). And a pony.

Seriously though? She has a very good point. I'm posting the button below in my sidebar in a show of blogging solidarity. I wonder if that woman from the Times needs my address? And my phone number. We need to talk about that pony.

Until I write again ...

Apparently the woman at the Times was writing that as a push for her book ... nevertheless this is a good cause and I was on it yesterday ...

It was a good post. I'm not sure I have much to contribute!

Are you feeling better?

Don Mills Diva said...

Thanks for your support - hope you're feeling better!

I am so sorry that you weren't able to eat for 2 days. I hope all is well. Next stop, Don Mills Diva.

My blog roll has not been updating your site all week. I just came over the DMD because I saw your link there.
It looks like I miss a lot this week over here. Hope you all are feeling better soon.

So? How's everything...?? You may spare the pics this time, I think. LOL Unless, of course, you just wanna.

Thanks for the info! I left a comment for the Diva and I think blogging is like an art. Not everyone considers Picasso a great artist - so you don't buy his prints. If you don't like blogs, don't read them. I think blogging is like a good friend you can go to at your convenience. At the very least it's a great journal.

As soon as you wrote "Be vewy, vewy quiet" I read your entire post as if you were whispering. Very effective.

Good luck. And pig out this weekend!
