You read that right, FIVE HUNDRED PLUS blogs! The actual total is 535, but since some of the blogs aren't active anymore, I'm not gonna be fussy with the actual headcount.Over 500 blogs based partially or solely around Eve-Online are in existence. Do five-hundred people even play Eve? Maybe, but I can tell you for damn sure that there aren't that many good writers or people with interesting stories in Eve to justify that many blogs. Let's take a look at some of the stuff that people are creating blogs for because they just absolutely have to share:
Disproportionate Reality by Drakan290:Wait... what? That... that's what she said? Maybe this is just a joke and he's getting to the part about explosions and lasers soon:
I started out waking up really late, thanks to a failed windsurfing expedition yesterday… I couldn’t get it up (that’s what SHE said), nor could I move forward, every time I’d get on the board with the sail, I’d go straight into the wind until I fell over… Yet, in 8th grade, I was a windsurfing natural; I could just get on the board and go… I guess all that growing up and weight additions really got to me.
After about 5 minutes of probing, I finally pinpoint the site, a highsec LADAR site without any clouds – basically a LADAR mining site with RADAR containers… And this is where it gets interesting. I go in to scout out the site cloaked, fully expecting a decent amount of force and to be uncloaked, but not only that, I expected with the 3 other PvEers in local, it would be run. Seems my pinpointing skills, elite frigate and gravity capacitor rigs really came in handy, because the site was too hard for the other three guys to pin down, and I had it all to myself.That's the interesting part? You probed down a LADAR site? Oh god, my brain. It's melting, I can feel it and it hurts. But wait, I'm sure the PvP is coming. I know there will be battleships and drones and hot chicks in bikinis perched on a yellow Corvette. It's all building up to something that will blow our mind:
I killed the Bulkers and reminded myself I’d need another blockade runner to move the minerals back up to Octanneve for sale, if it did indeed spawn something of value, but it didn’t. All I got was a Tritanium and Pyerite drop. With such a boring day, no gatecamps, no unsolicited NO TR roaming gangs, I called it a night and dropped off of EvE.That's the end? That? It's like I just went to dinner with a fat chick, paid for her meal and her movie and then she refused to sit on my weener when we got home. Why did you make me sit through that horrible date and then not even give me some fat chick sex at the end, drakan209? You think the internet and blogging is a joke? You just don't do stuff like that to people and expect to get away with it. I will remember this and one day, you will pay.
Oh well, let's move on. Surely there are more quality blogs out there that can make up for that catastrophe. Let's look at the list and choose one at random. Coke and Whores, eh? How could a blog with that name possibly fail. Here is a snippet from the first post:
Coke and Whores by leboe:What a tease. You get linked to from CrazyKinux, you name your blog something that awesome and then you don't even make any posts? When I check back in a week there had better be at least one new post about coke, whores or preferably both. Oh, and I don't mean the soda-pop type of Coke.
Welcome to Podlogs. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Let's try one more random blog before we totally give up on the universe of Eve blogs:
EveNewb by Spectre:I don't even know how to describe how sad and ridiculous this is. Your blog isn't popular and you aren't a talented writer. What makes you think that you're worthy of free video game money? Why don't you get off your ass and play the damn game yourself and maybe you'll have some ISK to spend. People who create posts like this that beg for money make me want to punch kittens. Well honestly, punching kittens sounds fun regardless of the situation but that is completely besides the point.
The fundraising contest will last one week and one week ONLY. Simply transfer as much ISK as you would like in game to 'Spectre3353'. Put 'Pirate Fundraiser' as the subject/reason and you will have done a great deed for a great group of people!
This brings me to my point: You don't have to have a blog. Does it seem like everyone else's blog is better than yours? That's probably because they are. We don't need a blog about how you just ran a level 2 mission and we don't give a shit about what kind of dumplings you were eating during that fleet mining op. If you don't have something worthwhile and interesting to post, then don't. Stop spamming this community with your awful crap just because you think you have something significant to provide because believe me, you most likely do not. For every Wensley, Mynxee, Roc and Kirith, there are a hundred Drakans, Leboes and Spectres clogging up the bandwidth and covering all the quality with their loud, obnoxious and useless crap.
Please my friends, this is your chance to help save the Eve Blogging community...
