RAHUVA Blog-- 3.25.08
This started as a comment, but I moved it over to my blog instead-
I agree with much of what is said about those types of blogs. I would point to Spiffy's comment on the other types of blogs. Many of those types get trampled under by the hate/emo/high-political-tension blogs. The real focus of humanity is lost in the multitudes of those three types of blogs, and in the reading of them. The real focus of humanity is in three principles:
the Pursuit of Happiness
Life blogs are one type that is specifically pointed out. It truly is those personal, life-changing experiences that season the blog (and blogger for obvious reasons).
There aren't any blogs pertaining to Liberty (maybe centrist/populist politico's) or the Pursuit of Happiness (perhaps mingling amongst the life blogs).
Myself, I don't read many blogs. I stay away from the political blogs because they're way too left or way too right even with the humorous satire. I stay away from hate blogs. I'm not a hateful person. Canadians, the French and French-Canadians sap away my hate.
When I write a blog post, I try to have IMPACT Pseudonymous Writing Blog in the writing; the goal isn't to cause controversy-- it isn't humanities goal either, in my opinion-- but to show a different path one can take. Frankly, the path we're on is well off the beaten trail-- and there might not be a path at all. The reading and writng of relevant blogs that have that strong IMPACT to change one's life and bring KNOWLEDGE to the reader/writer is one of the great issues of the time.
Motivation(?) is another thing, and one of the minor points where I disagree with RAHUVA. Sure, IMPACT is sought, but it's the way the IMPACT is achieved. YouTube user: AtheneWins Athene, he is IMPACTing the YouTube community, bringing up issues that are not only important to himself, but also to those of his subscribers. They are all relevant issues as well. But it's how. Nearly all his videos are titled with PORN somehow placed in the title. This brings about controversy the same way titling a blog post 'Controversy' does. And there certainly was even minimal controversy in RAHUVA's post, in not mentioning most other types of blogs.
Controversy is not IMPACT
Porn is not IMPACT
I have no issue with RAHUVA's wanting of IMPACT. I /did/ read the next to last sentence, and my response can be seen. In the end RAHUVA has IMPACTed me-- to respond in such manner to the issues-- and I hope he has IMPACTed his readers as well.
