Would you read a blog if you didn't like somebody's style? If it was different from your own? If they had different political views from your own? If they wore fur? If they were too opinionated?
Why are all the most popular bloggers skinny?
Blog are meant to make our voices heard. But is anybody listening? Do they not (at least somewhat) reflect the dominant ideologies of our society anyway? Do we not tune out when the voice is dissimilar to our own? Send messages of hatred when people try something different?
Or is it that we just conform to an image?
Why do we all look the same? Stud everything we can see, shred t-shirts, bleach jeans.
Why do I not do all these things on purpose? Is that not worse?
Are blogs really platforms for discussion or just unanswered monologues?
I feel isolated in this medium. I don't know who I'm talking to. I'm like a stalker, I often don't comment.
So why do we do it? What does it accomplish? Why don't we scream our opinions? Why are we always treading on thin ice? This is our space, our place. People should hear our say.
