Why Blog?

Since the beginning of time, human kind has found ways and devices to express the one thing that separates us from lower animal life: communication. Society has moved beyond cave drawings and smoke signals, but apparently telephone, email and text messaging were not sufficient for the unique intellect to adequately express oneself. In other words, why blog? Because we’re just that cool.

All the popular kids are doing it. Everyone from famous authors (shout out to James Dashner and Dan Wells), to stay at home moms are becoming involved in mankind through the blogging sensation. And reading these blogs give us a voyeuristic pleasure, like peeking into a diary, or overhearing a phone call. Not that I entertain any thoughts of voyeurism (laughing a bit uncomfortably, ha ha). Yeah, anyway, moving on…

John Donne once wrote that, “No man is an island.” In today’s world, however, one could say that no man is an unread blog. So if you wonder for whom my blog tolls; it tolls for thee.

The Vermillion Voyeur, errr, Vixen a.k.a Debbie Hibbert


  1. I would say that there is no other vixen that I would love to spend my time idling away in a voyeristic state of bliss.

  2. This is why I'm glad I don't have it connected to a webcam.

  3. Creepy...there's voyeurs around. (Closing my window blinds...)

  4. Admit it Kirk... you are keeping those blinds wide open. You can't hide it from me. Literally.

  5. I wanted to say something quirky and fun, but my daughter is crying in my ear....I've got nothin'.

    Great post though, Deb. :)

  6. Thanks for inviting me to see the blog, Debbie. It's an awesome place to hang around. Loved the "tolls" comment. =]
