So many questions.

Why are bloggers the first to denigrate themselves -- "relax, it's just a blog post" -- and then are the first to get all up in arms when they realize nobody takes them seriously? Do you want people to listen to what you have to say and respond earnestly, or do you want people to think of your writing as second-class, by definition of its medium? (Why would any writers want to wish such a horror upon themselves?) How are bloggers "just" so as opposed to writers?

"Just a blog post" ... so strange.

My writing is always far more serious than you want it to be
