The social studies of online blogs (not including vlogs yet) always intrigue me to see how the society at large transformation dealing with information and details.
I am not much aware of any kind of formal study of deaf blogs and vlogs affecting the deaf community.
I met numerous deaf people whose greatly dismiss the deaf blogs and vlogs as some kind of nuisance or unwelcome stuff.
I also noticed pretty changes within deaf people's societal attitudes toward me. Handful of particular deaf individuals pretty avoid me which they fear of my possibility of posting personal information, etc. Others embrace me very well or treat me normally. Ever some deaf people send me or talk to me with very damaging information about any particular deaf people. I really have to be careful what I am supposed to do like writing the blog piece to inform the Deaf America and the rest of Deaf World. I refuse to allow anyone to use me to destroy someone deaf for personal reasons. That would be not the proper journalism ethics.
I never will post any personal information whenever any deaf people share their private conversation. All of us are human beings with our own flaws. That is against my own nature anyway. I am a Sagittarius myself which I tend to be more loyal and understanding. I do condemn any kind of deaf cronyism, favoritism and corruption.
I often walk on very thin line whether I should write and post any blog piece to right the injustices toward deaf people as Ricky Taylor aka Ridor have been very famous for.
The Salon article mentioned that the society at large consider too many blogs out there. Do you agree with this societal assumption?
