Why I Love Blogs

Blogs put the power of the press back in the hands of everyday people who for generations before would hand out pamphlets, send letters to the editor, and post flyers in the hopes of reaching a handful of readers who would hopefully understand their commentary, ideas and views.

Often it was who you knew rather than what you had to say that was the determining factor in whether or not you got published. Just think of all the talent there is in our community. Now everyone can have a voice.
"A bird in the hand (see the bird in her hand?) is worth two in the bush." This means it's better to have one blog of your own than to wait a lifetime, sending out several queries, waiting for someone to validate your work and maybe, just maybe: 'Yes' we'll publish it.

As pioneers, bloggers are fulfilling the promise of the World Wide Web.
