Sharing Some BlogLove

John Carenen is a colleague of mine here in Mondoville — his office is across the hall from mine. He’s funny, talented, passionate about his students and good writing, and another man of the Right despite working in a college English department (Of course, that may be why he and I are down at the end of the hallway.). His work has been published everywhere from Reader’s Digest and McCall’s to the Clinton (S.C.) Chronicle. He’s got a terrific wife, great kids, and a novel coming out later this year. But he didn’t have a blog.

Until now.

He’s now the chief cook and bottlewasher at Curly, Larry, and Me. You should make it a regular stop on your blogreading journey. He’s good.

Meanwhile, the Major (Ret.), now in mufti, has reverted to his earlier identity as Mad Dog, Esq., under which name he will blog sporadically. I hope you’ll join me in dropping in and bickering with him, on the grounds that the more time he spends with his blog, the less time he spends working as a faceless bureaucrat, bringing about the demise of all that right-thinking people hold dear.

Finally, Steven Hart is a writer with a fondness for noir. He, too, has a blog, and he warrants your interest as well.

We now return to our regularly scheduled gradeapalooza.

    People keep trying to tell me that blogs are passé (a judgement I don’t endorse), so I’m glad to see people reviving old ones and starting up new ones. I’d much rather read enthusiastic amateurs–in the most laudatory sense of the term–than paid, institutional blog-journalists buttressed by 140-character blurbs.

  2. Facebook can be amusing, but blogs are where it’s at. Twitter? Don’t get it, not at all.
    Thanks for the shout-out.

    I think the Golden Age of blogging is definitely past. Not that the Golden Age was all that Golden. My blog got more comments back then, but it was still largely ignored. But, now I am down to one professor in Los Angeles, a librarian in Accra, and a post-Graduate student in Essex. That is the smallest possible audience you can get and still be international.
