The people who say that [blogging is “dead”] are idiots. Blogging was never alive. It’s the people that matter. There will always be a small number who are what I call “natural born bloggers.” They were blogging before there were blogs, they just didn’t know what it was called. Julia Child was a blogger as was Benjamin Franklin and Patti Smith.
As blogging turns 20 this year, David Winer and other internet pioneers reflect on the medium’s cultural role.
A good piece for blogging motivation today. I’m not one of these natural born bloggers; this doesn’t come naturally at all. But if all good things are worth fighting for, I’m working my way up to creating a blog post that’s something to see.
…just not any time soon.
