I have added the ranting Rebecca to my list of blogs that I always read. Why? Coz I always check it and read it, so it must be good.
You see, you have to be good to be added to my list of blogs I read. No doubt those already there are flattered, and you readers who have a blog and read and comment to mine who aren't think I am a pompous and arrogant git.
My blog list will always be short. Just like the list of my friends. While I do blog (such an ugly word), I don't spend a lot of time on blogs and the ones that grab me, usually have some personal connection, even if I have not met them. Once I am committed to them, I might check a couple of times a day to see if they have written anything new.
For me to add you to my list, your blog must be interesting. But most are. Write about things that I can relate to. Many are. It must be personal, so that I can picture you or at least get an idea of you. I like to hear the bad stuff as well as the good. But, (cliche coming) at the end of the day, it is totally subjective. You just got lucky, or maybe you think unlucky.
Since I was adding someone to the list of my 'approved' bloggers, it suddenly smacked me in the face that there is a common link between them all and me and it is totally unintentional and co-incidental. I have read so many different blogs over years.
So how come every 'approved' blogger and myself are (or were AFE) something to do with public transport?
What a closed shop. I need to get out more.
