Tag me… Tag me… Tag meeeee…. (Amir jumps up and down long way down the queue while his voice fades in the noise)
We aren’t people anymore.
Have you noticed?
We’re the Wonderful Bloggers of OZ.
When you read an article or post or tweet, look at the language. “Bloggers”. Like some group of lost writers who crashed a hot air balloon, landing in a bizarre world: The Blogosphere.
We perform tricks to dazzle—with words and photos that aren’t quite as real as we’d make them out to be.
Because, sometimes, your dog’s foot is in the background of that perfect tulip shot and needs to be cropped out. Sometimes that amazing idea gets caught in a tornado and thoughts whirl around and around until you plop down near a Technicolor yellow brick road.
You land on a witch and get her sparkly shoes (which are wicked cool). So there’s that. But there are flying monkeys to watch out for. So there’s that, too.
The Blogosphere can be a scary place.
