Mike Birbiglia has a funny line at the beginning of one of his CDs. Talking about his blog, he says something to the effect that “everybody has a blog nowadays.” But then he observes that many people SAY they keep a blog, when in reality they simply report occasionally about what they’re doing. “I’m at JC PENNY,” they’ll write. Then a single reader will reply: “I love JC PENNY.” As MB says, that’s not a blog, it’s a text message.
Good chance this blog will turn out to be merely a bunch of text messages. But we’ll see.
