Yup.  It's the curse of the modern age.

Only with posts pimping those blogs. A simple link (in signature or profile) is easy to ignore, if one so wishes.

Yup.  The only one I can recall NOT ignoring is FatherG's.

No. I don't have a blog myself because I don't have anything to say which worth saying, but I don't mind reading other people's blogs.

Exactly. Just a signature would be fine. But the incessant pimping is downright agonizing. Why do we think we are some authority on anything simply because we may have a blog?

The one by Fr. Aidan is great (user akimel)...

As for the general habit of mentioning blogs (not in signatures, but in posts), if someone has made a helpful blog entry, which is perhaps a bit too long for general forum reading, I think links to it are great. I'm less of a fan of reposting blog material here as a new thread, which often just confused me as to whether it is meant to start a discussion about the topic in general, about the post in particular, the writing style, or whatever else...  Cool

For some reason, whenever I tried logging on to Fr. Aidan's blog, my computer slowed down to the point of almost crashing.  This happens with a lot of other blog sites, too, but for some reason, not Fr.G's.  Go figure. Huh   So....I tend to ignore most blog sites.

Most theology/religion blogs are boring and/or poorly written. That's why I only follow music blogs that are boring and/or poorly written.
