Why blog?

From , live.

The Sulekha guy said that 97% of bloggers simply give it up because they can't get the audience they'd hope to get. Does that mean that the dice is loaded against a would-be blogger even before he gets started?

On the contrary, I think even low activity blogging is important. Why? Consider this: What would happen if I stood up and abused this guy?

I'd be shouted down and shown my place, if not actually roughed up. That is, all these passive listeners would get activated and set things in order.

That is how world events might be shaped tomorrow when bloggers take notice of it.

But it is more than that, of course. Neha made a very important point that deserves more thought and separate post.

You're right.. I think a lot of people just give it up because they feel like they're just speaking to the void.

If we have conversations centred around or triggered by content that is up there on the blogs, it would build networks of people--some small, some big.

That's when the true power of the net can be unleashed because these networks would interact with other networks in ways that no one can even predict!

Thanks for stopping by, Kat.
