Evil Spock at Needs of the Few winds up writing a piece on vlogging which does not mention me or Pammy but does talk about anonymity and also somehow works in a tie to hip hop music and Slate. I wanted to comment on this part:
Will regular blogging become obsolete? It is a lot easier to watch a video than to actually read.
In the case of the right wing vlogger mentioned above it is simply easier to make a video than to spell correctly. And don't even mention going back to fix the "typos" when several commenters point them out. As I've said before, she clearly doesn't think her blog is as much an extension of her selfhood as her face. But for me, it is. (Please report any typos or mistakes in grammar, at this blog, not Pammy's, sheesh, to bluegalsblog AT gmail.)
I am not going to vlog all the time. Sure it's my new toy and I'm playing with it. It will take time to work out the kinks and get it so it's actually good. But this here blog took time to be any good as well. Art is about making mistakes, and throwing in kiln devils so the pots don't break.
