It’s an interesting idea that anybody has an opinion that’s valuable enough to share with the rest of the world. Before the internet, book publisher and newspaper editors filtered the written word in an effort to make sure that only things worth reading made their way to the public. Blogspot, Tumblr, WordPress allow the worthless thoughts of one person to become the worthless entertainment of another person somewhere else.
I blog because it entertains me to write short pieces on things that usually aren’t substantial. Writing also gives me an outlet for the frustration that I usually keep buried deep within. So while I think blogging is usually worthless and promotes egotism, it’s also kind of fun.
