Over at the Hartford Courant, Elinor Lipman writes about her ambivalence towards blogging. "What do I have to say," Madama Lipman wonders, "that isn't already out there?"
I have often wondered the same thing myself. There's something very narcissistic about a blog; you gotta believe what you have to say is worth hearing, and frankly, most of the time it's not. Everyone's got an opinion these days--the world, blogosphere and meatspace--is alive with the chattering of zillions of opines. Why should anyone care what I think?
But, clearly, in my case, narcissism has won out.
