Paragraph bitch

This is one of those posts.

One of those posts in which I bitch.

About what?

About people who create a new paragraph for every sentence in their blog posts.

Why do they do this?

Do they think it sets their words apart?

That people will pay more attention to what they say?

I, for one, find the practice terribly distracting.

Are you afraid of formatting?

Never got the discussions of paragraphs in your English classes?

Don't understand which of your thoughts go together and which are new directions?

Have you ever read a book written this way?

No?

Ever read a book?

It's not done like this.

Not to say that your blog should read like a book.

Or that I'm the queen of paragraphs.

(Honestly, I format paragraphs more by their length than their content, so it's not like I'm perfect.)

But seriously, folks, how can this not bother you?
