The answer, people, is simple.




Finally an excuse!

Umm, I don't know if I agree with this as the basic idea is that I write a blog so that people come an read it and by extension have influence. I don't know if that is the case for me and others. When I started blogging, I didn't blog for anyone else but as a way to organize the bits of information I wanted to find later (although now I use for that now). Often now it is things that I am thinking about and either want to use later or get feedback from. Blogs aren't alway for the readers but often are the for the writers themselves.


I'd agree that blogs aren't always for the reader, but, as is always the case with 'publishing' - whether that be music, poetry, fiction, worship - there is a required tension between the public and the private.

For many early bloggers like yourself, the tool did seem to function differently. Now I think there are a lot of people simply firing off things into the cyberaether without a great deal of thought, rather like children playing with a megaphone. There's no harm in that, but one can't play for ever, and, hopefully, people will either get bored, or get interacting.
