Presumptuosity is a real word
The act of (or in my case, art of) blogging has the semi-realized side effect of eliminating mass emailers. I think I like this.
It’s like saying to your friends “Email? Why should I bother emailing you when I could more easily put my thoughts up on a website somewhere and, if you want to know what I’m thinking, you can check with that.”
That sounds a bit pompous, but it also lets your pals deal with you in their own good time. What if more events could be like this? For exampling, you don’t go out drinking with your friends, you just decide to be in a state of perpetual drinking, and your friends can come and go as they please.
The resulting realization: Blogging is akin to Alcoholism.
