It didnâ€™t take me any time at all to finish reading the archives of â€œLife As I Know Itâ€. Here I sit a few hours after reading it all, though, and canâ€™t really recall any of the information I read from the authorâ€™s posts.
The author is John. Heâ€™s a Christian bachelor living in the St. Louis area, according to his Blogger profile. Before I began reading, I thought I would be able to relate on a few levels â€“ single and living in a metropolitan area. Iâ€™m also very familiar with the St. Louis area, hopefully giving me another avenue where I could connect with the writer. Unfortunately, I was zero for three in the â€œconnectionâ€ field.
John does tech support for a local newspaper. He sometimes writes about his day at work. Church, his family, and music are other topics of interest that John focuses at in his posts.
The posts are very straightforward and thereâ€™s nothing really below the surface of his posts. They donâ€™t require readers to think or formulate opinions or questions about what theyâ€™ve just read. Theyâ€™re just vague. It almost seems as if John walks on egg shells to make sure he doesnâ€™t go against what any of his readers would think.
The siteâ€™s hosted by Blogger, so it naturally has a Blogger template. Thankfully, itâ€™s a simple one thatâ€™s very easy to navigate and keeps things simple. John lists a few of his favorite links on the sidebar, but thatâ€™s all of the customizing heâ€™s bothered to do on the site.
Recommending the site to other readers is easy if they are just looking for a quick weblog read. What you see is what you get in this weblog â€“ the straight facts, very little opinion, but very clear writing.
