A few days back I decided to scroll through some of the thousands of bloggers who call Sydney home.
Of the hundreds of profiles I glanced over very few held any interest for me. There are hundreds of try-hard photos and a few try hard self-descriptions, there are many more not-trying-at-all profiles, a few slightly witty words and a whole lot of not much.
Another interesting point is that every time I look at a new page the number of Sydney bloggers changes, it might be 150 000 or it might be 78 000 or it might be 128 763. It is one of life's little mysteries, that.
One profile picture that grabbed my attention belonged to a blog called "headline"
The blog is all about circumcision. There are lots and lots of pictures and Mr Headline managed to make me feel quite guilty about the intact state of my boys. Undoubtedly an anti circumcision blog could make me quite sure that their status is the only way to be.
I thought it was all a bit unexpected and weird but at least it wasn't some first time parent writing in the "voice" of their (exceptionally intelligent) baby.
I also came across "Katabasis" , the blog of a New York Jesuit who is spending some time here in Australia. Father David has some good stuff to say so I would encourage you drop by his place and say g'day.
