I've been on the prowl for such a blog. No luck really. This blogosphere really seems more like advertisements, the blog-boards on the internet highway. I'm slow on the etiquette but I'm sure I'm breaking some code for speaking of such a thing? I go to a blog and have to weed through all the flashy advertisements (yeah I've got some on my blog-didn't want to stand out completely like the new kid), then all the different support pages before finding anything remotely like a blog.
These sections I've regarded as 'support pages', are places where the blogger posts their accolades (which is awesome), but other pages included are hops, linkies, and swaps. I'm still trying to figure these out. The gist is blogs will have daily link ups or hop parties and have cute day of the week names to go with it.Some blogs have rules you have to follow everyone on the list and some have no rules. Ah networking for blogs.
So with all this networking via social media is anyone really reading anyone's blog? I found most of my time adding others' blogs to my twitter, bloglovin, facebook, google+ accounts then actually going through the person's blog. When I did find one that interested me I certainly left a comment to say so.
It just seems so commercial with the advertisements (I say this in my head like the children do in Mary Poppins-I digress) about products, button swaps, link parties and blog hops; lol the irony the Burger King commercial comes to mind. "Where's the beef?" Even with Pinterest I would find great ideas however the link to websites were broken or they're just repins of repins and instructions have been lost from the original.
Oh blogosphere you had, I'm sure good intentions, until the corporate world came in and now us bloggers just pimp you out. You're just flash to get the goods out there. So maybe many bloggers don't really read other blogs. I for one like to see into someone else's life and will read. If no one reads this or my blog-well then I guess it's just my own digital diary after all.
