What - about 100K+ new blogs per day? Do the math - w/in the decade, no one will do anything but post and surf and read blogs. They say the Holocene Epoch is over and this is the Anthropocene, but in between is the Blogocene (not to be confused with the Poetrycene, which is already experiencing a massive extinction). Does anybody really like blogs? Or does everybody feel they have to have them to keep their name before the phantom public? Or to let all one's friends know all the things that you'd tell them if you picked up the phone. As Frank O'Hara points out, instead of writing a poem, you could just as easily be writing a blog. So why not!
If you're running a workshop, here's something to try when the weather gets a little better (which around here may be a while). Also an example of Joe prose. From The Best of the AWP Pedagogy Papers 2008.
