I've never seen blogs as having any real value outside of keeping in touch with friends in a very public way. And since some coworkers recently started blogs, I thought I'd give it a try, so be prepared for lots of spelling and gramatical errors.
Doh! Blogs aren't for keeping in touch with friends, they're for sharing details of your life with random people.
Guess thats why I never understood blogs, who would care about the details of my life other than my friends? Idle curiosity? Seriously, I don't have time to read some strangers blog about how he likes to cut the crusts off his toast in the mornings. :-P But if that person was someone whom I know, and I can poke fun of later...then yeah.
Hey. 9mn here. Blogs are a waste of time. So why am I commenting on this blog site? B/c I am a walking, talking oxymoron. And b/c I love arcade fever.
Glad to see you got into the spirit of things. Blogging is a great way to let the world know what you think and get it off your chest at the same time.
