Same planet, different worlds

My mother just called and asked me what a "blogger" is. I laughed as I attemped to define what a blog is and who the people are that write them. After about 10 minutes, I said "I'll send you links to some so you can take a look." I pulled together a few of my less embarrasing favorites and then googled some of her interests to find some she might enjoy. Had to share the list:
www.overheardinnewyork.com (hysterical)
http://www.lotteklaver.nl/log/ (art from amsterdam)
www.gofugyourself.com (I can't really explain this one, except it's funny and about fashion)
http://www.complete-review.com/main/main.html (book reviews-very literary, most I've never heard of)
http://blog.kir.com/ (houston blog, I haven't read it too much, but it's interesting when I do)
http://www.operacast.com/blogger.html (opera)
http://www.therestisnoise.com/ (by the music critic for The New Yorker)

Then I asked where she had heard the term. "There are some in jail in Egypt and Iran. It's on the news."
