The Point of Blogging

I’ve been reading some suggestions that blogging is about the links, about the passing on of interesting tit-bits, news and so on. Well, frankly, I disagree. I can get all the humorous links from my sister’s emails, which are replete with silly jokes involving nuns and sex objects as well as links to pictures of funny cats and what-not.

Instead, I think I like a blog which comments on something. Talks about something. My favorite kind of blog is one where the author is almost like a mini-foreign correspondent. Their reports are longer than the odd note, full of personal voice, and buried deep within some interesting events, which they are discussing.

Speaking of which, I should update more often.
