What would Shakespeare blog about? Probably international gossip about the royals and world politics. He might well become a TV pundit--riling up the populace with heavy-handed conspiracies, dramatic revelations and dark dealings in government. He would be wildly popular.
I, on the other hand am a lightweight (metaphorically speaking), and deal in recipes, family stuff and things that bug me. Fortunately, there is room online for everybody.
I have a dirty little secret--I've never been a fan of Shakespeare. Even though I was an English major and studied the Bard, I never found that unique passion for his works that many others do. I don't get what the fuss is about. I sometimes wonder if it might be that he wrote in the same Elizabethan English that the King James version of the Bible was written in. That would certainly lend a lot of weight to the words.
Believe me, I'm not in competition with the great Shakes. I just have a real blind spot when it comes to having insight into what other people see in his writings. I guess I'm to be pitied.
