Reading of the Blogs

  1. Do you read about things that have nothing to do with you, as in you have had no experience with or formal knowledge of? It's obviously hard to read about things you have no interest in, but do you read something that falls in that category once in a while, just to keep things fresh and gain a new perspective? What have you read lately that meets that criteria?

    I try to. I try to keep an open mind and look at things from another point of view. It can be hard when it's something you do not agree with, or have any interest in. I try though, I think it helps me grow as a person, or something.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. I always like to read about things I have no experience of.

    Take "A Day of Love and Indifference" for example, I don't have children, I have no interest in children, hell, I don't particularly like children. But I read your blog because it's something someone else has experienced and I'm all for reading about experiencing what others do.

    Say if one of my friends has the same problems as you, I can say, "Don't worry, you're not the only person in this world that didn't feel an instant connection with their child" and I could send them your way to read what you have written. You could be helping someone right now and not even realize it.

    It does help my mind grow, if I'm just reading about the things I know already, it just gets boring.

  3. Oh my, yes I read blogs by people who are completely different from me. I'm a mother of five and cannot think of anything worse than reading a parenting or typical mommy blog! Like I don't get enough of that at home.

    Most of the blogs I read are written by people who don't have children and people who have far more interesting lives than I.

    Here are two perfect examples of that. One is more zen and the other is freakin hilarious!

    @momfog to quote (or at least paraphrase) "The Princess Bride". regarding you calling one of those blogs zen - "I don't think that word means what you think it means."

  5. @HB Ok, Let's just say I'm using it in more of a generic way (not as Zen, capital Z, as in a form of Buddhism), but from the Chinese and Sanskrit roots. "To see, to observe, quietude, meditate."

    But, to make the Habituated Buddhist happy, I retract that word, and submit "deep" instead. :-)

    One of my favorite parts from "The Princess Bride" just for fun.

    Vizzini: I can't compete with you physically, and you're no match for my brains.
    Man in Black: You're that smart?
    Vizzini: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
    Man in Black: Yes.
    Vizzini: Morons.

  6. No, not really. I'm a horrible person. :x

    If a blog touches upon a subject I dislike/don't care for, I ditch it and move on.

    ^^;;; /shame

  7. I try an read as many types as possible. There are times when I can't get myself to read, lets say about a sport that I don't play, about politics of a nation that I don't know much about, views that are so different that they are incomprehensible etc. But I do try, it has helped me loads to broaden my horizon. Won't pick any, each blog is unique and different in its own way if you ask me.

  8. I particularly like blogs where people talk about their daily life (with pictures!)
    Its quite interesting. Wish there are more of them hovering around....

  9. @xx: Nothing wrong with that. I know i have days where I just am not interested in anything. :P

  10. nickelbeck - I like the lyrics of that 'Rockstar' song you released recently, but 'How you remind me' was just played too much and drove me mad. Hope you got over the break up.

  11. I read any and everything except Academics related blogs :S
