From The Teachings of Silvanus: "Do not be a sausage which is full of useless things."
As a fairly new woman blogger, I'll admit that the exhibitionism/egotism aspect of blogging takes some getting used to. Maybe it's more of a problem of us Southern women bloggers, but I was socialized not to call too much attention to myself or assume that the whole world is hanging on my every word.
Highlighting each other's work, new publications, etc. is definitely a good thing!
Your #1 is my main reason for leaving blogging. Julia's observed "exhibitionism/egotism aspect of blogging" is something I've never gotten used to. (Sigh. Now, back to being a sausage).
