There’s a staff of 10 writers that are listed as writers to this weblog, and they all do their fair share of posting. I was prepared for mass confusion. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
The latest entry was the story of one of the weblog’s authors taking their first Geocaching Expedition. Albeit they were under the influence of drugs while taking this little journey, this particular author does an entertaining job of giving us a humorous, detailed description of the Expedition. And further into the archives, there’s a long post that’s a rant on current events. It’s probably the most opinionated post I found here, but the opinions of this particular author are very well backed up and the writing style of such topics is done in an extremely clear manner.
All the different authors have their own unique way of posting – some will post narratives, others will bounce back and forth between posting about their social life and national current events, and there were some one word posts that I couldn’t make heads or tails of. In all, this group weblog does a good job of not turning the posts into a conversation going back and forth between all the contributors and gears itself more towards entertaining the masses that do visit the site.
The design of the site is something I liked. It wasn’t anything complex at all. Each author has a specific icon that’s posted by the title of their post, and the posts are offset in boxes that are a different color from the background. It’s a sharp looking site.
I wanted to know more about these authors. I know part of the fun in a weblog like this where nearly everyone uses nicknames is being anonymous, but I couldn’t help but want to know more about this group of writers.
There were times when I thought I need to smoke something illegal to get the full concept and humor of this weblog. Not being under the influence of any type of hallucinogenic drug while viewing it confused me at times, but for the most part I was able to get a good idea of what these kids were writing about. It’s a fun, college-aged weblog that’s worth a visit just to get to know this gang of students.
