I never would have believed a year ago when I started my own blog at the urging of my good friend Neil (http://milongas.blogspot.com/) that blogging would take such a chunk out of my day. OK, so I’m not writing posts all day long, but I’m thinking of things, and of course reading other blogs that turn out to be so fascinating!
I started tangocherie last March, so we’re blogging for almost one year now. But I was haphazard and a bit reluctant — maybe because I knew it might take over my life. And since my accident in Pilates class (2 broken ribs), it more or less has.
I was already checking out other blogs on Buenos Aires, tango, Argentina, but now I have my favorites which I read like the morning paper.
I do have some suggestions, though, for the blogosphere out there, albeit they are little ones: black background with white letters just kill my eyes and discourage me from reading more — especially early in the morning with my coffee at hand. I beg for light backgrounds and large letters.
#2 is that some blogs go on and on with lots of text, and interesting as it is, I would love to see the text broken up with some photos, or at least some white space. I don’t have a camera myself, but I try to use photos my friends take or that I steal from the net. What do you think?
I am fascinated with this whole phenomenon of online diaries, as if anybody gives a shit. But maybe we do.
