I know what some of you must be thinking right now. Is that title meant literally, or figuratively? Oh, you weren’t thinking that? Well you are now, aren’t you? Now I wonder what you all are thinking. Did Brother Jon forget to pray today? He’s acting kind of funny.
I assure you , I’m fine. I had an idea the other day and I’ve decided to see if it goes anywhere. If so…this will be, at best, good to mediocre. At worst, you will never even know it existed. If I were a gambler I’d say it wouldn’t see the light of day…but you know what Bieber says “Never Say Never!” So here we go.
Don’t worry, this isn’t some philosophical entry about this being the time for Bloggers…which it may very well be. No, I was thinking about the actual ages of the bloggers I follow…including myself. Is there much difference in styles, dependent upon the age?
The bloggers younger than me, who all happen to be about 25, all seem to have humor sites – Mooselicker, Lily in Canada and Becca @ 25 to Fly come to mind. Often when I comment on their posts (well, maybe not as often as I make it sound) I get a reaction similar to “Oh…I’m only 25, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Thanks guys, my beard just somehow got grayer. Would you mind passing this Thirty-One-Year-Old his cane over there? Yeah, I used to have to blog…up hill, both ways…with dial up – on a laptop made pre-2008. (Some of this is true. Choose for yourself.) Others include Vyvy @ Vyvacious Eats, Hannah @ Psycho Girl Self Help, Ericka @ Creative Liar and Lauren @ Tales of a Charm City Chick.
Then you get into bloggers that are my age – the 31-year-olds. (Give or take.) This a potpourri of writers. Off the top of my head I can think of Adam (formally of MRTB, now I believe Chowderhead) – Humor. Emily @ The Waiting – Humor plus Mommy stuffs. And then there’s myself – Humor/Religion/other stuffs. These are my kinds of people. When I say something about Mr. Wizard or You Can’t Do That On Television or Banana Man they know what I’m talking about. I like when people know what I’m talking about, which sadly doesn’t happen often. Thank you guys for being born around the same time that I was. Others include Jen @ Sips of Jen and Tonic, Jen at Roller Giraffe, David @ Meet David Harding, Matt @ Photo-Bio and Monk Monkey @ Monk Monkey,
Alright, now…all the bloggers that are older than me. This is probably the largest group out there…so I will not list any of them. (That would be just rude to list them here, here, here, here, here, here, here or here anyway.) This is also the most wide of range of themes. Anything from humor to spiritual to writing to comics to medical to zombies to *insert any other possible theme here*. They often comment about how young I am…which I thank them for. They also say things like We may be older, but you have more grey hair or Oh, I guess that’s before your time. Yes, I’m still a pup…and I owe the knowledge of this to all of the NOT listed people above.
I guess I didn’t really talk much about their styles, did I? So, does age make a difference…in any way? I don’t think so. I’m just happy to be a part of this group as a whole. What do you think?
