Blogging about blogging

I’ve been blogging for a while now, but I have never understood the appeal of blogs whose entire existence seems centered around blogging about other bloggers rather than making a genuine contribution through original writing. (No need to point to examples; if you’re like me, you have probably stubbed your toes on these sorts of blog posts countless times in the last 24 hours.)

Although the comboxes get heated here at times, I am thankful to be part of a group blog that focuses on original writing and commentary on contemporary issues and current events rather than constantly pointing the finger at other bloggers, Catholic or not.

Can’t the Catholic blogosphere do any better?
