Why I Read Blogs

Now some of you are thinking this isn’t rocket science, well you’re not my head, it could be ๐Ÿ˜‰
Have you ever heard the old adage that women love to gossip? Let me tell you, men are worse. For starters look at the ratio of male to female reporters; let’s not kid ourselves a journalist is a super gossip.
WordPress is like gossip super highway. It’s fantastic, being on holiday with iPod (other tablets are available) I’ve seen some great photos, read about relationship breakups, the evils of Mitt Romney (other politicians are available), dogs having pups in a wardrobe, someone who bought their daughter a pink shooting rifle, illnesses, cures, inspirational tales and tales that make me glad that I’m me. Yes folks it’s all here, better than newspapers, more interesting than TV and great for insomnia. Love you all keep it flowing. ;

    I think blogs are the most important publishing innovation since Mr Gutenberg invented his press. The traditional media is being circumvented, and their information monopoly is crumbling. If you are good at blogging, you can build a loyal following.

    You can also accumulate a loyal opposition which is healthy for debate. That’s where the traditional media comes up short. If you disagree with a column, there is no way to make your opinion known. Blogging is changing all that, now. Even the major newspapers are adding online comment sections to some of their articles. I don’t know if it will save them, but it is a move in the right direction.

    One fascinating thing is that the lowly blog has become a major source of news corrections. Many of the most popular bloggers have the ability to attract lots of attention when exposing errors in traditional reporting. The CBS News / Dan Rather falsification of the Bush military documents, and the disclosure of falsifying Israeli/Lebanese conflict pictures by UPI are two examples of fraud in journalism that were exposed by bloggers.

    Even if we don’t have a lot of readers, we can still enjoy blowing off some steam, or penning our latest prose for fun.


    • I agree whole heartedly Bob. The media’s grip on local , national and international news/information has been undermined so many times this year. Governments are worried too. They constantly try to bring in new laws over here so they can monitor more closely and usually fail. Thanks for you comment ๐Ÿ˜‰
