Nope, you're right

You're definitely not misreading me, aseidman.  I also think the allure of the details of her gaming session stemmed from the fact that I have little to no experience in that area.  I think blogging can be extremely useful when it describes something--be it a foreign country or a video game--"exotic" (if you will).  Blogs are one of the more interesting portals into the unknown, a digital ocean full of information overlooked and underexplored.  For example, it was more interesting to read Geeky Mom's desciption of WoW than it would have been to look it up on Google or Wikipedia and read a boring article written by somebody who had been paid to write it.  Because blogs are unlimited in their content and style, they allow for so much more exploration.
