I admit that I find public proclamations that one doesn’t blog about the news to be akin to public proclamations that one doesn’t own a television. To me, a fair amount of the news is “my world” or “things happening in the realm with which I live”, and discussing it isn’t just “hive mind”. Which isn’t at all to say that one somehow is obligated to do so. It’s the weird public pronouncement that seems a bit la-dee-da to me, not the decision itself. I mean: bully for you?
