Is blogging a productive exercise for a society as a whole.

The trend of blogging is multiplying, not by days, but by hours. More and more people are finding blogging as a mean to speak out their mind about anything and everything. But I really wonder whether this is really a useful thing to happen. And if not, then what is that we need to do to get the most out of blogging.

I think that blogging is an awesome tool, not only for the self but for the readers. Any kind of expression is good for the soul, whether you want to share information or a good poem or just say your feelings. I think it falls right in line with any kind of art aka expression (i.e. painting, sculpting etc.). I use my blog to express myself and inner feelings and though I choose to be more open than some I feel it truly benefits me and hopefully someone else who may come along. So I truly do not see a downfall to it at all. People can choose to read it or not but you have put it out there and that is what is important. Great topic!

If the blog gives information then it is fine, but if it is just junk, then it is not worth it. Just because you can get on the internet does not mean you should have a blog. Also unless you are a college graduate, and have all this knowledge, it is hard for an ordinary person to write a successful blog. Who wants to hear of my favorite recipes or see a photo of my grandchild or even learn of my trip to goodness knows where? I am not a professional cook, a photographer, nor can you pick up my book at Coles. I have one on my experiences with writing, but I have only a couple of published articles and no one is going to go to my profile page and read it unless I can tell them that you can buy my book on

As we are becoming more tech-savy, the conversation between people are getting reduced day by day and people ought to stop their tongue itching so they write blogs. Some blods are read and others are just equivalent to thrash. If more fools are posting blogs, I was told greater number of fools are reading it. I did not get any opportunity to read any blogs.
