I don't see myself as either a hipster asshole or a hypocrite, but I agree that blogging is a privilege.
That is to say - having the margin in one's schedule, finances, and energy to devote to blogging really is a privilege because meanwhile most people in the world today are forced into the alternative: using all of the above resources - all of it - solely to secure food, shelter and safety for their families. And too few of them succeed at that. They certainly could not afford to futz around on the internet, pontificating about this or that. They have mouths to feed.
So yes, keeping a blog - even this one - is a privilege. I recognize this and will try to bear it in mind as I continue to learn how to leverage my privilege on behalf of the poor, oppressed, marginalized people of the world.
