"In this author's opinion..." [May. 23rd, 2006|04:10 pm]
Jesse Hamm
They taught us in English class that good nonfiction writers call as little attention to themselves as possible, sometimes even foregoing use of the "I" pronoun in favor of less direct references.

I find the opposite is true on weblogs. If it ain't about you, you're expected to shoehorn yourself in there somehow. You could be writing a piece about weather patterns on Jupiter, but it must include banter about your secret crush, your irrational fear of dragonflies, what you did on your lunchbreak, and five things you hate about cheese.

Gonzo wins out?
