My friend Lars has decided to banish the first pronoum from his blog, consistently writing in the third person as an opposition against what he sees as the forced subjectivity of blogs, or perhaps rather to prove that personal writing is not dependent on the “I”. He considered writing everything in the passive rather than the active too but has decided to wait on that one.
I like the first person. I’d like to see more of it. But I’m fascinated by the idea of a third person blog.
