Anyone else notice the tendency of some bloggers to anthropomorphize their blog? — By which I mean something like if I would write, “Masson’s Blog wonders if anyone else has noticed the tendency of some bloggers to anthropomorphize their blog?”
To me, it seems to be a stylistic tendency drawn from editorial pages where the editors write in the name of the newspaper. “The New York Times endorses . . .” And, I suppose on blogs where one or more writers is/are writing on behalf of the entire organization after some sort of collaboration, that makes sense. And, I certainly have nothing against bloggers using pseudonyms. But, individual bloggers writing as if they were an organization seems a little off somehow.
Not a big deal by any means. Just something that occasionally distracts me while I’m reading various blogs.
