Blogging about Meta Blogging

It feels like 90% of blogosphere is people blogging about what somebody else said about a topic. Instead of contributing new information, we are talking about what others are talking about. Yes, I too am guilty of this on both my blogs.

Here is a guy who says a similar thing.

I am going to consciously try to avoid doing this.

To paraphrase: "I am going to avoid doing things by doing them". ;)

It was irony. It hurts to have to point it out :)

I think there is value in being a connector as well as being a creator.

Nothing wrong with emphasising one or the other or both and I don't normally worry too much about it.

Jason, I'm not 100% convinced but I'm seeing a lot of bloggers who do only that and nothing else. They can do whatever they like but I'd like to contribute in some way and learn to do more than just parrot what others say. Maybe I won't succeed but I'd like to try.
