Noting that “now more than ever we need people to just unashamedly love something”, Tom Critchlow links to some thoughts about blogging by Robin Sloan.
The thing about blogging is, you can just write about the things you love. A “professional” “critic” (scare quotes because who even knows what words mean anymore) has to do something else, something more difficult: manage a kind of unfolding… aesthetic… worldview? Balance one thing against the other? A blogger suffers no such burden. A blogger can simply
- love a thing, and
- write about it.
