Blogging the personal Saga

John Montgomery continues the saga of the not-quite-broken-but-possibly-defective Maytag washer.

I’m not sure why I’m drawn to this story, but I read, and am either interested or amused by every post. Maybe this is the blogosphere’s answer to reality TV.

I like the effect that these types of posts have on the blogging community. I know some people complain about people posting about their dogs, their vacations, etc. I think it adds humanity to the information network. The catch is that you have to have valuable content in addition to the “personal fluff”. When I like the content someone provides, then it’s fun to get some context about the person at the keyboard.
