That has been my question for awhile now. It seems like EVERYONE has a blog these days, and I have to admit, I enjoy reading a good blog. This summer I spent several hours of my life reading the whole life story of a complete stranger whose blog came up in a Google search for a childhood friend. Does that make me some sort of a voyeur or just a girl who really enjoys hearing people’s stories?
What do blogs say about us as a culture? Does the world really need to know what we think about everything? Why do we feel it’s necessary to put ourselves “out there” for the whole world to see? Are all bloggers frustrated writers looking for a creative outlet? Are blogs helping us to be more honest about who we really are or do they giving us a false sense of camraderie and friendship with people we don’t really know? Self-serving or serving? Self-centered or higher-purposed? Food for thought or junk food for the brain?
So should I “let my words be few” or have I found a new way to “encourage and build up”?
I honestly don’t know. What do you think?
