    i never liked blogs. most people were boring.
    now most blogs are just advertisements thinly diguised as blogs.

    it reminds me about when everyone was trying to do podcasts. most people
    just arent interesting enough.

    I've created a website, but decided against blogging. Blogging is fine when it is personal, but I've seen people who post articles as blog posts, which doesn't make sense. Articles and writing which aren't a log would be better served categorised, tagged and sorted.

    The blog format only works for news sites, opinion sites for current events, and project status sites (which are just speciallized news, if you ask me).

    There are writers publishing fiction in blog form, but I think the format does not work well.

    It's harder than it looks. it's hard to be good on radio.
    We have a radio pair here that is great at talking sports, great at all the online banter. When they interview a celebrity it is so horrible and cringe-worthy. They don't know what questions to ask. it's like 'what is your favorite color' type stuff.

    they can get by coasting and sound like great friends with everyone at the station they talk with. it works for them.

    I agree. There are very, very few blogs that I find are worth reading, and those are usually artiles posted as if they were blog posts, rather than actual blog posts.
