That’s a question I find myself considering more and more.
I blog for two reasons. The first is, hopefully, to reach a certain audience with good ideas. The second is to discipline myself as a writer. Regularly putting ideas into words is better than sporadically sitting down to right.
Most of what I read suggests that a very few blogs matter, at least in terms of readership size, and that most are clumped in the massive middle of the bell shape curve and read by only a few friends and relatives.
The question of what “matters” in life, blogs or otherwise, is an important one. Nobody wants to spend precious time and energy on activities that don’t count for something to somebody somewhere. The true artist is often content with simply creating what makes him or her happy. Others use a more commercial definition of success, or what matters.
Do blogs still matter? And if so, which ones? You tell me….
