I took a look at Svetaâ€™s Blog: writingup.com/blog/sveta. Normally we add a hyperlink but this blog doesn’t merit one! Being an incurable pop culture addict, I was intrigued with the description: â€œHumor, hilarious parodies, satires, music and movie reviews, personal essays, and basically, anything you could possibly imagine!!!â€ Initially, I was disappointed. My pop culture indulgent needs were simply not, well, indulged.At first glance, I found it to be more of her latter description…that of the anything you could possibly imagine sort. I first started poking around, and I questioned, what IS this Blog really about. But then I found myself reading about the traumas of a Mormon wife, of a man who brought me to the streets of New Orleans with a cup of smoking coffee, of a mom whose heart broke mine when her daughter wanted to move away to Pennsylvania for camp â€“ and oh, how difficult it is to be a mom.
I kept reading Svetaâ€™s Blog. While it is not the most organized, it seems, that is the point. The Blog is about anything you could possibly imagine. The more I read, the more I understood. This is not about me; there really IS something for everybody here. I found the pop culture after all, though I never thought I would even be thinking of Duran Duran in 2007; but I was, and I liked it. I also got some scrap booking tips; how to deal with the measles, asthma and other common ailments; and strangely found myself writing Tom Wolfeâ€™s new book on my to-do list. I like Svetaâ€™s Blog because it leads you wherever you want and wherever you need to go. Many of her links are not her own, but she provides a service to you by allowing you to get where you need to go just by visiting her blogdom. It IS well written if you enjoy that punch drunk kind of slant at popular culture and the human existence, though that is not for everyone. If we are talking about content and not style however, there is definitely something for everyone, even when the content is probably not the most original.
The activity is not the most current as I am not seeing any posts beyond June 3rd of last year. That being said, I will take her American Idol comments to intend LAST years competition. Further, I found myself being extremely distracted by her Ad Sense and was really searching for content in between the ads, rather than vice versa. Given this, although this Blog can serve lots of flavor with the right kind of java, I am going to say only about a .5 out of 5 scale. She offers very little meat and potatoes for content, the structure was completely disorganized, the Blog activity itself has come to an all out halt, and the advertising is out of control. This is unfortunate, because her writing was established enough to make me feel as if I was on that New Orleans street with that smoking cup of coffee with my friend. However, for keeping me interested and for the stroll down memory lane, I will give her the .5 as that is about as long as my attention span could last on year long material.
