The Most Awesome Blog Thread Ever

In response to criticism about blogs from David Appell, who says most blogs are worthless, MY ups the ante and wholeheartedly agrees:

"The only thing I have to say to defend myself from those charges is that I don't think the post was really about why I suck, it was about why the punditsphere as a whole sucks with me just as a prominent example. And he's right. To gain any worthwhile information about any topic whatsoever, you need to be reading the work of someone with real expertise. To develop real expertise requires years of study, research, etc. And years of study, research, etc. can't be adequately condensed into a blog post. Thus, blog reading is a completely worthless exercise and nobody should really engage in it. I started writing this blog as a hobby; I thought it would be a fun thing to do. And I not only continue to enjoy writing it, but people pay me to write it. But the mere fact that I'm writing it doesn't make it a worthwhile thing to read, which is why the overwhelming majority of Americans have never read this blog and never will."

To add to the irony Jason Zengerle then links to the above posts adding "amen" to the end of his, which then leads me to blog about it making this thread quite possibly the greatest waste of my time ever! Man, if this was any more awesome I'd be a ninja.
