Canadian Thoughts: I Don’t Get It…
When I read blogs, I tend to read humour-blogs. Often I’ll read a whole bunch of blogs in a single sitting. I admire the posts that make me laugh, and then try to figure out how to steal the material. I shake my head at humour-blogs that I really don’t think are funny at all, and yet have fifty-two million replies to every post, each one exclaiming what a brilliant and insightful writer the blog owner is.
Then I’ll check out a random link to a new blog, hoping that it is funny so that I can add it to the roster of sites that I regularly read. Instead I’ll find myself floundering. Even the humour-blogs that I don’t find funny I can at least tell that they are meant to be a humour-blog. But this new blog is something else. Where’s the humour? Why is this supposed to be funny?
That’s when I’ll realize that the blog isn’t meant to be funny at all. It’s a different type of blog. One of those non-humour-blog blogs. You may have heard of them? I have become so wrapped up in reading humour, that it is difficult for me to make the leap to a different type of writing.
That’s when I know it is time to take a break.
