Weirdness, truly. I get the weirdest email lately since I've become a member of the blogosphere. They look like spam, but they are asking me to join their "blog community", whatever that is. Does anybody else get emails like this?
After my tirade on sado-environmentalists' fixation on the sport of Ultimate Frisbee, I received an email from a website that wanted to know if I would like to join their "sports blog community." And by "community", they meant sports leagues in New Zealand that nobody heard of, or followed, even in New Zealand.
Today, I received a invitation to join "Health Bloggers" as a member of a community of people who blog about "Health Issues."...eh? I didn't know I spent an inordinate amount of blog-consciousness on health, but these guys seem to think so (or at least their web bots do). I can only assume my recent posts on stem cell research would have been the catalyst for such an RSVP.
Is this the new blogosphere version of the guy on the corner waving flyers in your face to join their bible study meeting/communist sympathy league/PETA pity party?
