A Blog Away from Life?
I dont usually do stuff like this.
Kazablanka is the owner of one of Oman's most popular blogs. She has a pretty big - and very loyal - fan following. Now, I'm an extremely infrequent visitor to that blog, but I can understand why it has such popularity. Its hard not to fall into the mood of the blog. The pervasive carefree silliness of her posts and manner. It seems some people really like a blog like Kaza's, which purposely avoids being too serious. It makes a stark contrast with the blogs of some other finalists, which tend to stay mostly on the serious side. I think some people like that, its an opportunity to escape from our serious lives into something more fancy and more rich. Kind of like stepping into The Sound Of Music :p if I can use that comparison: everything seems carefree and happy.
Why I'm writing a blogpost about this is because I visited Kaza's blog today. Its too happy for me! I didnt really read the posts, but read the comments, and its quite suprising how into it the bloggers are - they really love her. And theres a poll on the side saying 'what do you think of this blog' and the possible choices are its great, it stinks, you stink, i stink, we all stink (each one with an exclamation mark). As silly as the poll was, I couldnt help but vote for 'we all stink!'. Its very easy to fall into that carefree mood with her blog...and thats kinda scary. :p
PS Theres an excerpt from a book I'm been meaning to post here for days, but the thought of typing out all that text puts me off. I'll do that in my next blog post hopefully!
