As a veteran blogger of nearly 6 years, I understand the sentiment of this article. I have never blogged for anything more than my personal entertainment and a desire to somehow connect with other adults. I started blogging in the first place as a sort of personal coping mechanism for the various difficult circumstances I was facing at the time. I have kept blogging for that reason and also to keep a sketchy record of our family’s life and my thoughts about it. Occasionally, I throw in something else. But I never expected to earn money or gain fame by blogging. I just thought it was cool technology that wasn’t too difficult for me to play around with in a way that might be fun and helpful.
Alas, we all know that real “bloggers” do much more than that.
The article in CT makes me wonder about the whole future of blogging though. Any thoughts?
