Is blogging democratic?

I've noticed that most bloggers I visit regularly are pleased with the result of the American mid-terms: does this mean that blogging is a democratic pastime?

Or is it a case of like attracting like? If I come across a right-wing blog, I am unlikely to re-visit, and as I tend to link from one blog to another, it'll be more of the same. That makes more sense.

Younger Son has an interview tomorrow so, today, we went to buy some smart clothes for him - smart meaning trousers without holes or tears.

We walked into one shop; he picked up trousers, a shirt and a jumper, tried them on and said, 'These'll do.'
'Don't you want to try any others? Or look somewhere else first?'
'No, these are fine.'

If only I were as easily pleased.

The centre of Swansea is being dug up. The bits that aren't being dug up are being knocked down or draped in sheets, rather like a mortuary.

Driving through town today, along what was, and I suppose is, the main street, was a scary experience. A one-way system is being created so I was driving down what was the wrong side of a dual carriageway. What with workmen, diggers, road signs, traffic cones, and holes, if I hadn't been following another car (very closely) I would have been convinced I had it wrong. I'm not going there again until they've finished; I have enough stress in my life without that.

Our son chooses clothing the very same way. Must be a boy thing!

Democrat! no, I'm worse. I sit in the middle and look at both sides then make my decision. Which inevitably leaves me confused, because they both bring up valid points. LOL

How did the interview go?

He said it went well. Seven out of the original 71 who applied were interviewed for 1 post. Let's hope!

Good for him. I have my fingers crossed.

Poor old Swansea. It's hard to imagine what it looks like at the moment.

I've had that same thought or question about whether all bloggers were democratic/liberal/left leaning. Seems like everybody I associate with thinks the same way as me.

Then I'll stumble across a right-wing conservative blog, visit a few on their blogrolls and realize, there really is a wide diverse spectrum out here. We just don't see them so often. Birds of a feather... Animal magnetism... We all just tend to be more at home and in a comfort zone with our own.

That's why I have felt so foolish when doing a political rant posting... it is preaching to the choir...
