The one where I get pissy #46
So I've been having a great time regaling you with stories of my silly vacations with my college roomate. While I've been doing that, way back in the deep dark recesses of my mind, I'm really ticked about something. Really ticked. I've discussed this with other blogathon participants. It's not just me that's noticed this.
Not ONE person that participated in Blogher sponsored a blogathoner. Not one. Or, if there was one, they sure kept it quiet.
So much for that 'community' I keep hearing about. What fucking hooey. Honestly, if I hear one more time about how great the bloghers are, how they come together to support each other, I'm gonna hurl. Where they hell are they now? We're blogging for CHARITY. We're working our collective asses off to raise money for various programs that desperatly need the funds. Social programs all over the world are being cut. People aren't asking for themselves. They're asking for charitable organizations doing good works. All kinds of organizations. Like those for animal rights, and for women's rights, and for sick children.
Where the fuck are you, bloghers? Spending your money on makeup and new shoes and clothing you don't really need? Pouring costly alcohol down your throats? Spending money buying useless crap that will end up getting tosses out or put in someone's junk drawer? Why are you wasting your money on this crap? WHY?
I'm sorry, but I think the materialism is utterly disgusting. I'm so tired of the Me Me Me of the bloghers. Oh yeah, you're all there when you don't have to actually DO anything for anyone else. But when you're asked to donate a freaking buck for charity, where the fuck are you?
Get your heads out of your asses and pay attention to people that need your help. Do you volunteer? Of course you don't. Do you give to charity? Do you do ANYTHING other than blog and complain about your marriages, your children, your houses, and your pets? If you do, you sure aren't blogging about it. Why is that? Stumble It! JBlog Me
