Poem: A Blogger

A Blogger

What is a blogger
This curious creature
Typing these postings
Whatever they’d feature

New age transcribers
Town criers of message
All varied topics
In all different dressage

Some are progressive
Others tilt to the right
Blogs for describing
Any person’s delight

Sites built for gossip
Or random portrayal
Those who lack subject
But rant in detail

Hobbies of interest
Expounding on fashion
Journals of living
Ideas breathing passion

Lest there’s forgetting
Even cats join the fray
Pictures are posted
On a cat blogging day

Back and forth banter
Via comments and polls
Sometimes intruding
The innocuous trolls

Checking the meter
Or search who is linking
Look for discussions
What others are thinking

Blogging’s obsession
Consumes to distraction
Once you’ve submitted
Perceive the attraction

Sometimes I wish I could resist the attraction. I'm an introvert by nature, but the blogging world allows me to be a social butterfly.
Very good observation.
