Blogs are so self-indulgent, aren't they? We write the stories that we think are funny or we brag about our children or we drone on at length about our own philosophies and revelations, assuming that other people will find us just as interesting as we do. We make the private public--even to a small public, in the case of locked entries--and worry about invasions of privacy perpetrated by the medium that we choose to air our dirty laundry.

How much we would all like to be admired, I suppose, to be the guru on a hill, political wonk, the mommy-wars expert, found Deeply Interesting and bookmarked by our faithful readers.

It's all a bit ridiculous, of course, in the way that everyone thinks he has a novel in him. All these wasted words that spill out into nothing.
