i know it exists, i know it's fun for most people, i know (as other activities or hobbies) it can be addictive, and i know it can actually increase your appeal to others, depending how you use it.. yet i've never actually managed to get myself to seriously blog.. and interestingly, my experiences in blogging is very much like my experiences in skiing, i've done it only once but then i fell shamelessly in front of the instructor, and never got myself into trying again.. but my last blog didnt experience any fall, it's just that i forgot my password hahahaha.. but maybe if this one lasts, i'll have another go at skiing.. boom de ya da!
The phenomena of blogging i think have existed even from the early innovations of the internet. It's partly a product of human nature, i happen to believe. To socialize, to create networks, to express oneself.. interestingly with blogs is that we all get a corner of our own, which sometimes in real life we don't (which is nice, yet cliche). The appeal is, i think, universal (in the sense of someone to start blogging). The range could start from any age, any gender, any profession, whether you're a shy or a narcisist, every one can blog! i just think that deep within ourselves we're all painters, longing to draw a picture that reflects the very happenings of our lives, who we are, what we do, and stuff. Blogs are merely a canvas, that like i've said, not everyone can buy in real life..
People say blogs are for those who cannot express themselves in reality which is why they've gone online instead. I think that's just virtual insanity. Maybe there are people who express themselves better through written words (like me :">) but maybe even "people's people" (referring to people who are socialites) use blogs to update people on them, or whatever.
I guess that's what i can think of. Wanted to write about blogs as the premier article because it's relevant.. hahaha
