Why the Bear Does That Thing
Is it some sort of necessary psychological distancing between writer and blog? Is he afraid readers might forget that he is The Only Real Bear Catholic Blogger if he wrote in the more ordinary fashion?
The Bear is sure he had a reason when he began blogging. Today, however, he has no idea. Rather, he does it for the best reason of all: the Bear has always blogged in the third person. Furthermore, he wagers you would think it odd if he started saying, "I" this and "me" that.
At the inception of St. Corbinian's Bear, the, er, Bear knew he wanted to treat serious matters without being so serious. God knows how depressing things can be in our times.
And that, my friends, is why I always blog in the third person.
