Maybe I Need a Ghostblogger?

I’m really not following the whole Kanye ghostblogging “controversy” and personally I really don’t care. I do read Kanye’s blog on the daily, and I have questioned the fact that the dude has at least 10 posts a day while he’s supposedly touring or producing, or whatever else the dude does.
But when you look at Kanye’s posts, they’re usually one line long, and really don’t have any skill or depth to them. He needs a Ghostblogger for that? Dude, I could do postings like that from my Phone.
Anyway, the whole ghostblogging point is null and void. Wannabe gossip blogger Sandra Rose accused Canadian blogger Marcus Troy as being Kanye’s Ghost Blogger after he wrote this sorta tongue and cheek post about wanting to become a Ghostblogger–NOT that he was a ghostblogger. Either Ms. Rose can’t read or she had some type of vendetta, because obviously the dude said nothing about being Kanye’s Ghostblogger. Of course, with Kanye being Kanye, he unleashed an assault on the dude and posting pictures of himself er….blogging.
This is the type of blogging bullshit that makes me want to dust off my old IBM typewriter from my mom’s closet and become the unabomber. As much as I love blogging, I’m hating the fact that this medium is becoming like cable news–where blogs are competing to one up each other with “scoops,” and “Breaking News.” Obviously, this chick Sandra Rose thought she had a scoop on Kanye, but if she just re-read the damn post, she would see that it was just some dude with a blog posting nonsense. Maybe it was her Ghostblogger? She should learn not to outsource those things.
