OK, so everyone knows what a “blog” – or web log – is, right? Basically a website that is constantly updated with minimal fuss, essentially a combination online journal, commentary, and links page. Some are good (Instapundit), some are bad, and some are downright ugly (hey, I don’t bookmark links for the latter two categories).
So, I’m wondering two things:
What do you guys think of blogging in general?
Do any Dopers blog?
I keep thinking of going over to Blogger and setting up one for myself, and I can’t explain why. I can think of a million reasons why I shouldn’t – my schedule is too weird to update regularly, there’s already a zillion half-baked blog pages out there, I don’t really have anything to say that isn’t being said elsewhere, I could be spending that time doing other things, etc, etc. Every synapse in my brain says starting a blog page is a road to mediocrity and/or frustration, a project that I’ll probably ditch six months in. But I still wanna do it. Can any blogging Dopers share their thoughts and/or therapy?
