For those who came when this was up as a draft, sorry. I thought I hit save as draft, but apparently not. It is no longer a draft.
One thing I have found very interesting on blog-city that I am not finding on other blog sites is the lack of links. I enjoy the diary mode–what I did today. I also enjoy the journaling mode–what I thought about whatever. I do miss some of the “Wow! Found this great site.” Or the “Here's a site on what I was talking about.” There are some. Meaning.blog-city.com had one just yesterday on some philosopher named Quinn's website and FAQ.
But, for instance, I've read two blogs about Gangs of NY, but no one directed me to a site where I could find out what that was besides a movie which the bloggers saw. I found that a bit frustrating. But that may just be me. I've been to Plastic and BoingBoing and they are not diary/journal bloggings. They are all informational.
By the way, I told my classes today NOT to blog. The students are 12 and 13. (I think my son would enjoy blogging, but he is 11, so he's not doing it either.) I thought they were too young for the discussions going on, at least at blog-city. I think some of them could have good input on the philosophy and Christianity threads I've been reading recently, but I don't really want them reading all the “WTF” and sex things that end up in here. Certainly not mine!!!
