To Blog or Not to Blog?

According to Wikipedia, "a blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual <1>, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog."

It is estimated that there are up to 200 million former blogger's (they got bored) and 100 million active blogger's. The site also claims that blogging has peaked as people get tired of writing stuff and the relevance of reading other blogs drops off.

So that got me to thinking. I have been doing this for a few months now and have received pretty steady results in page views and number of viewers.

Truth is, this does take a lot of time each day and if you were doing it you would want to know if it is worthwhile.

Is my blog about education, entertainment, editorial or a combo of all? Some like to read, some like to post. There are daily "posters", weekly "posters" and anonymous "posters." When I ask questions, I only get a few percentage of readers responding.

Regardless of what kind of "poster" you are today, please let it all out, step out of the box, and let the blog world know what topics interest you most and what you want to see more of and what you want to see less of. After all, the great thing about blogging is that is gives you freedom of expression with no ramifications. Blog away!

Happy Thursday!
