It’s not that I hate blogs, I just don’t want one and I don’t usually like reading them. To me blogs are kind of like Tom Cruise movies – they are there, some people love them, but I don’t really want to have much to do with them.
My least favorite blogs are study abroad blogs, which are just a game Mad Libs.
