"If I lived in Paris, I'd say Oooh la la la la la la la."

Paris (Oh la la) - Grace and the Nocturnals

I've noticed that there are about six major categories of bloggers. They are:
  1. I-Just-Got-Married blogs
  2. Fashion blogs
  3. Craft blogs
  4. Religious blogs
  5. Mommy blogs
  6. College student blogs
Notice the demographic that is missing? I do.

[Psssssst! That would be high school students!]

Have you ever noticed that? I enjoy reading so many of the blogs that fit into those categories. There are so many great ones out there. But at the same time, I'm always constantly looking for those who are going through what I am going through right now. I have found a few that I absolutely love, but there aren't nearly as many out there. Not good ones anyways.

And the ones that are out there are mostly religious bloggers. Don't get me wrong; I'm not anti- Jesus, God,  Krishna, Muhammad, etc etc etc. It's just not my thing, you know? Religion is a personal matter for me, and reading people talking about it extensively evokes the same emotions in me that someone talking extensively about their sex lives would.

[Will I go to hell for that comparison?]

Just an observation. I think it's odd.

you forgot my favorite kind of blog! Cooking blogs!!! Mmmm.. I could read those all day.

I think you could put yourself in the college student blog in a sub-category called "Pre-college student"... you're almost there anyways.

Don't forget photo blogs, rant blogs (mine falls under that category, I think). And I feel the same way about reading really personal stuff. Sometimes it's too much :/

And dating blogs! I agree that there are not too many younger bloggers...maybe you should start a movement???

Maybe you should convince your friends to blog or something, sweetie. You know, it seems to me that in highschool, I didn't need to blog because I was very social, but after having the baby, it seems that I crave more interaction with people and more "gold stars" [if I may]. So here I am! I agree with Lilly. Start a movement. =]

Agree on everything, even that lovely comparison! I totally understand what you mean.

No one knows I blog otherwise I would definitely tell my friends to haha!

I guess I fall under college student? lol I like to think we are part of Humanity Blogs. We talk about our life. I like that.

No I agree with you about the religion comparison. It's so personal for me, I can't just write about it. Some things I can, but others, no way.

I've noticed that too! I always try to find high school aged blogs. Because then as we grow up we can compare (that's not good but I couldn't think of another word) our experiences. I also like the college ones, though, because it kind of prepares me for what it'll be life.

And I totally agree about the religious ones. I think it has something to do with being Catholic. For Catholics worship is considered a private, quiet thing. I always feel completely out of place if I go to a friend's church that isn't Catholic. I feel like my religion is just something between God and me. No one else.
