Why Write to a Blog?

Why read Blogs?  Whats really the point of them.  I know my RSS reader has hundreds of blogs on it and I have a morning ritual of going through the reader every day.  I love blogs by why really use them, write to them or read them?  I read a quote the other day that summed it all up.  I forget where I got it, but it was one of those quotes that sticks to you deep.  Its almost like that S.G. Tallentyre Quote (thought to be Voltaire, but not compeltely there.  If you don't know what Voltaire I am talking about, I am talking about the Quote

"I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it". - S.G. Tallentyre

I think blogs are almost like that.  They allow for freedom of speech.  They allow for a person to change anothers mind on things.  If it wasn't for blogs, you wouldn't have a strong Iranian Resistance.  If it wasn't for blogs, many people would still be in their homes in china instead of jails for which China has sent them.  Well the quote I found was almost just as powerful.

 I read your blog every day, I hugely disagree with loads that you write and think you are overly kind to Microsoft.

But....

I'm not going to intimidate, threaten or otherwise cajole you to stop because sometimes you change my mind about stuff And thats the point of reading a blog.

 

I thought that summed up a lot of why I read blogs.  I want to learn, I want to experience, I want my mind changed.  I am open to the world.
