The way I see it there are two different types of blog in the world…
The first is one that actually has content, there are real posts that have meaning to someone somewhere in the world and is actually serving a purpose. Take Engadget for example.
The second, well itâ€™s crap, everyone else has one so why donâ€™t I create one and shove a shit load of advertising over it in the hopes that somehow Iâ€™ll have a bunch of morons click away and earn me some cash, or better yet Iâ€™ll join the mass on MySpace and agonize over my top eight friends and who Iâ€™m going to piss off by not including. Fuck off.
Why did you start a blog then Raj? Thatâ€™s the question on your lips isnâ€™t it? You canâ€™t see any astounding content that is making a life difference for millions; well no, there probably wont be but then I donâ€™t think Daring Fireball does that either but there are some who find itâ€™s content relevant if not informative & thatâ€™s what I hope to do.
What you will find on here is that each entry has a body, thereâ€™s some depth to it. The lack luster appeal of millions of sub ten word entries in the blog world must be off the charts! You wont find any of your standard â€œThis is cool [insert link]â€ postings here because I like to write; I like to write and have some thought behind it and itâ€™s my hope that others will enjoy it too.
All things said and done even if no one does read anything on here thatâ€™s fine, Iâ€™m not doing it for the fame Iâ€™m doing it for me.
