For this post, I’m taking a break from my recent political string of writings. Not because I don’t want to write political stuff—in face, I’m rather enjoying speaking my mind on the issue/campaign. However, I wanted to use this post to talk about two Internet communities in which I participate.
The first one is TwentySomething Bloggers. 20SB is exactly what you think it might be—an online group of active bloggers who range in age from 20 to 29. It’s like blog community meets online forum, and it’s great. A few of the blogs in my blogroll are there as a result of me going through different pages on 20SB, checking out profiles, and finding stuff I liked. It’s not meant to be a place where you go to get more hits for your blog, it’s about finding writing you like. Who knows, maybe someone will like yours, too.
The next one is AllMediocre. I absolutely love this. While it doesn’t really have the forum aspect down as well as 20SB, you can still check out the blogroll and find stuff you like. This site is also populated by blogs that are mediocre not in content, but in traffic. Check out the History section of the site for more details, and apply for membership if you wish. Most people don’t like the word ‘mediocre’ applied to themselves—I wear it proudly.
Links to both pages are found in my sidebar. Do yourself a favor and check them out; you could easily find something you like, and at the very least it will give you something to do.
