I have noticed that the most common word used to describe shitty blogs (based on the random blogs over on the right) is "musings."  I hate that word now.  It used to have such mystical connotations in my mind.  According to a few online dictionaries:


  • v. intr. - To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation.
  • n. - A state of meditation.
  • n. - Greek Mythology. Any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus (Calliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polymnia or Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia, and Urania), each of whom presided over a different art or science.
  • n. - A guiding spirit or source of inspiration.


  • adj. - Persistently or morbidly thoughtful.
  • n. - A calm lengthy intent consideration.

But now the only thought it brings to mind is some pimply faced nerd writing paragraphs about his latest game of Magic, some 14 year old "grl" blabbing about the new smileys she found :] :) :0 ;) 8-), or some some dillsnatch with a million animated icons, webrings, and background music.  There is so much crap out there in the blog world that it's hard to believe there is anything good to be found.  One rule of thumb I now go by: If the word "musings" appears in the blog title or description, skip that pile of trash.
