If journaling makes you a journalist,...

avoid racing.

It took me a while to cull my thoughts about the lively and lengthy discussion over "blogger ethics" at Brewed Fresh Daily into limerick form. The result may win me no friends among bloggers.

Can the blogosphere just self-assess
Without standards imposed? Well, I guess;
But, for pros who write prose,
We ask more, I suppose,
Than this Internet Vanity Press.

Yes, and

"This above all: to thine own self be true.."

Great words to live by that I learned from my Irish grandmother long before I ever encountered Polonius. But I was thinking more along the lines of,

"Believe none of what you hear, and half of what your see."

Yes, yes, of course

I love this place!
