TITLE: Blog Ditty

I am a writer, and I have a really big dog
So I named my web journal, “Gone to the Blogs.”

Get it, the play on words, on my internet log,
Gone to the “Dogs” was replaced with the “Blogs.”

Come read it and ponder, it’s sure to delight.
So many stories and humor packed in my internet site.

There’s tales of camping and fishing on Lake Whichamakoo,
And stories of my youth watching Mr. MaGoo!

No politics, no religion or deep meaning thought,
Will clog up this space, the one that I bought.

So prepare your mind to be emptied out there,
The blogs, they seem infinite, but I don’t care.

I’m telling my story, and sharing my mind,
Just another one in six billion, but still one of a kind.

Because that’s how God rolls, each an original he makes,
No clones, no duplicates, no copies, or fakes.

Oh, but oops, I’m sorry, I let slip out my bias,
About how we’re created, please don’t think me too pious.

So I’ll end this Blog ditty, and sign off I think,
Not sure I could’ve said it much better with ink.

Delightful. I know you call this a “ditty” but it touches on some provocative blog issues (volume, content, “bias.”) I’d like to see those developed more.

First read through I thought, you don't have to explain the joke; but then I decided you did that to be funny (which it is.) Good word choice and rhymes but the rhythm is off in some places and the rhymes sometimes forced. But overall a fun read.

This is upbeat and fun. You creatively nailed the topic in verse.

Thanks for a fun read.

LOL!

Oh, Man, these phrases sum up the odd habit of blogging perfectly:

"So prepare your mind to be emptied out there,

Just another one in six billion, but still one of a kind."

A delightful, fun read! Could've sang it and did a little ditty dance to it! LOL God bless!

An interesting poem! I tend to agree there's no need to explain the "Dogs" was replaced with the "Blogs." Lifting off that stanza would probably read smoother, but it is just a personal opinion. I like the ending. It's a thought I sometime wonder, whether it would be better for us to keep our journals personal, written in ink.
