Off the Record

Three years ago if you asked me what a Blog was I would have responded that it must be something that comes out of a child's nose. Now it seems that just about everyone has one.

The thing I find interesting though, is the fact that there are now so many blogs written by unlikely sources. One of my regular haunts (when I have the proverbial time to surf the Web) is Court TV. You see, I actually lived in NH during the Pamela Smart trial and endured day after day of live courtroom coverage. That was back in the day before Court TV existed. I guess it gets a bit addicting, thus the birth of the network. Anyhoo, I was surprised to surf over to their website tonight and lo and behold there is a blog covering a popular
current trial. I guess it was only a matter of time.

More interesting is the fact that one of the attorneys involved in the case actually has a blog as well. Publicity stunt? It doesn't appear to be. The archives go back to last spring. Of course the site tracker goes back to fall '04, so who knows? The point is, would you really want your defense attorney blogging about your case?

There is something so wrong about that.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
