This week's column:
Lost in the Blogosphere

As some of you may know, I recently started a "blog," which is not a nickname for a cross between breakfast and a frog. That would be a "brog." A blog, rather, is a Web site that allows anyone with a computer to share his or her random, time-stamped thoughts with the world, or at least with the four or five people who come across it accidentally while looking for porn.

Anyway, in my efforts to truly understand the blog phenomenon, I decided to spend an entire night jumping randomly from blog to blog via blogger.com. The following is a partial journal of what I observed. (The large gaps in time represent the blogs that were inappropriate for a family audience, or in Norwegian.)

8:45 p.m. Presented with a 13-verse song about someone named "Derek," I briefly consider shelving the whole project.

Good thing you pointed out the breakfast / frog thing. A brog is actually a blog that was written by a Japanese person, a.k.a. a "brogger."

Bless you, I attempt to do the same thing one night and I only lasted about a half hour. It just proved to me none of us are as interesting as we think we are. I can't even stand to read my own blog. Nice job with yours.
