Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There have been quite a few discussions of the meaning of life blog, lately. Really, they leave me totally uninterested.

This sort of in fighting or back scratching (depending on which side you are on) is why I now just lightly skim dKos. Sites develop personalities and a core group of followers and participants.

You can't really turn them into something else without chasing away many present visitors. This is what happened with dKos as it spawned blogs by people who couldn't get along for one reason or another. The thing about the blogosphere, as contrasted with the newspapers or opinion journals, is that if you don't like what you are reading, start your own site or move elsewhere.

At the risk of overgeneralizing I'd say that the more conservative sites are less open to contrasting view points than are the more liberal ones. However some "liberal" sites have gotten a bit dogmatic themselves and have become less interesting as a result.

Feel free to keep posting these introspective diaries, but I'll (mostly) continue ignoring them, there are too many really big issues that need addressing and life is short.
