Are bloggers celebrities? Okay, I know some have made it big time, but that’s not my question or the point I want to make I suppose. I guess what I want to know is the following: is it alright for bloggers to mock, ridicule, or impersonate other bloggers? I know many bloggers use celebrities as a huge source of their entertainment. Heck, Paris Hilton, Anna Nicole, and Britney have enough gossip surrounding them you could dedicate an entire blog to each of them.
Last week a few of you suggested I give feedback on my impressions of bloggers based on what I read. I’m still torn whether or not that’s a wise idea. Part of me would love to do this, but another part of me thinks that could go against some sort of "blogger code", burning bridges so to speak. However, if it’s okay for bloggers to ridicule celebrities… shouldn’t it be okay for me to turn the tables and critique bloggers? I’m just asking. I know there are blogs in existence which actually rate other bloggers.
Celebrities know they will be subject to public scrutiny. You can’t tell me Lindsay Lohan didn’t know the media would be so aggressive. Celebrities put themselves out there and so do bloggers. Our blogs are public and our stories are there for all to read. Granted we pick and choose what to share. I don’t think any of us are making bank as bloggers, but would it be fair of a blogger to turn the tables and critique others? Or is that an unwise decision?
Huh, anybody want to be this guy’s sherpa as he attempts to summit Mt. Everest sans clothes? The "Iceman" from Top Gun has nothing on this crazy fool. I saw a story about a woman who swam for thirty minutes in the frigid Antarctic waters. I thought I was hardcore by swimming the Ironman last year without a wetsuit, but these two folks really take the cake and make me feel very sane.
