I Read The Blog Today... Oh Boy!

Quick! What's that line (more or less) from?

Doesn't matter. Anyway, I noticed a proliferation of people who have this cockamamie idea to put EVERYTHING and ANYTHING about themselves on their blogs.

I don't know about you, but sometimes there is a limit to what you really should share with everyone. Just because you read something on someone's blog doesn't make it gospel. Then again, just because someone read your blog doesn't mean they are your best buddy.

I'm also a firm believer in not judging a book by it's cover (unless there's a hunk of man on it... then to each his or her own). Just because someone likes a particular genre of music or watches a television program, doesn't necessarily define them. But that's my opinion.


Then again, I tend to stand on soapboxes and talk to the crowds, heard by no one. Oh well.

Oh! Did you want to know the title of that song? You probably already know, so my telling isn't really a secret, but it's by the Beatles--one of John Lennon's masterpieces spliced together with a tune by Paul McCartney to make one of the most memorable of the Beatles songs.

Answer: A Day in the Life(I read the news today, oh boy...)

Yeah, my eyebrows raise occasionally in response to some of the things I see on blogs. I mean, really, do you want THAT out there?

I'm with you on that. I realize there are someout there who WANT to push the envelope and that's fine cause it's not me... but really, there's some stuff that the man on the street doesn't need to know.

I'm frequently amazed at what people put out there for anyone to read -- but I'm also a pretty private person.

Still, I tend to NOT read blogs that get too far out there, whether it's politically, religiously (two very HOT points for a lot of people, and the quickest way to turn someone off) or TMI-ly.

It's just...weird. LOL...

And, yes, I knew the song. And, yes, it's now an earworm in my head.

Really? I agree. Do these folks realize what is posted NEVER goes away? And besides does anyone really want to know all that private stuff? Heck even I don't want to know my private stuff! LOL
