My mind has been preoccupied by the Hurricane Katrina disaster the past few days. My blogging focus is quite narrow at the moment because I am still reading up a lot about it. One article that caught my attention today was about money, politics and how short-sighted most politicians are.
A snippet from the following link, Despite Warnings, Washington Failed to Fund Levee Projects – Yahoo! News:
“Elected politicians are in office for a limited amount of time and with a limited amount of money, and they don’t really have a long-term vision for spending it,” he said.
“So you spend your pot of money where you feel you’re going to get the most political support so you can get reelected. It’s very difficult to think long-term. If you invest in these levees, is that going to show an immediate return or does it take away from anything else?”
Still I thought it’d be good if I brought some levity into my little domain amidst all these tales of doom and gloom. The following is an entry from my old blog. Since no one ever read that, you cannot call this a rehash. Hahahah!
Signs of a blog addict
You know you are a blog addict when:
- Everything that you do, say, see, hear, touch, smell and taste – you are thinking about how to blog it.
- You read a lot of blogs.
- You leave comments on a lot of blogs.
- You considered having more than one blog because one just isn’t enough to contain your verbal diarrhoea.
- You sneak a look at your site visit statistics whenever you are free at work – woohoo, more page loads!
- You have a digital camera and you use it often – sometimes in not-so-appropriate situations.
- You think your writing is great when it really isn’t that significant in the bigger scheme of things.
- In some of your dreams, you are blogging.
… and the biggest sign of it all …
- The next day you blog about that dream in which you were blogging.
