My fear of blogging
What’s up fam,
I just wanted to take a step back to really observe blogging as part of the broader national progressive movement. The universal nature of blogs naturally encourages writers to pen stories that are national in scope so as to capture the broadest swath of readers. The problem as I see it is that too many bloggers follow three troubling paths,
1) Writing relentlessly on the latest breaking story (often national in scope) and expressing the progressive interpretation.
2) Fear of writing original commentary for fear of being too exposed.
3) General lack of writing about local stories, fearing a lack of interest and/or possibly burning bridges.
Do you see these things happening on progressive blogs at-large? What do you look for when reading blogs? What do you see in The SuperSpade? I think that the national movement we all think or talk about is being impeded when we all write about the same thing. Our real power is finding the common values amongst our very unique stories and instigating change at the local level that organically builds into a national movement. Your thoughts?
Stay up fam,
