The reasons I don’t like blogs.

You know what? I don’t like blogs. I mean the idea of writing a blog has always seemed peculiar to me. Here are my reasons:

1.Okay, blog is another way of communication. But it pretty reminds of shouting in the crowded street – you never know who will be listening to you. Actually, I have very little or no information that I would like to communicate to the unknown audience.

2.If blog is a diary, why to publish it?

3.Blog is a new mass communication media, like a magazine or a newspaper. Publishing your own magazine – how thrilling! Not for me, actually, I simply have nothing special to tell to the world.

4.Trying to talk to everyone often means talking to nobody.

But then I thought it might be a mistake. It happens so often: instead of opening your eyes and seeing something new & promising, you close the eyes and repeat well-known things again and again.

So, am I wrong about the blogs?

There could be other reasons to publish a blog. My family and friends live as close as 5 minutes on foot but as far as 12h car ride. I have 2 small kids (3 and 5 yo). So I publish a blog for my family and friends so they can see the kids growing. I get slap when I do not update it often enough. My parents love to see the pictures and here the story (they live far and we see them 2 times a year). In my case, I know exactely who reads my blog and what is his purpose and (small) scope.
