The better days of blogging

My friend Andrew’s mother Rita recently broke her ankle while hiking. Andrew wrote about it on his blog.

The post is both touching and honest. It reminds me of the better days of blogging when people wrote journal entries rather than gadget reviews. When people wrote about how much their day sucked rather than how much their Internet connection does. When people wrote about family vacations rather than writing about topics that are good search engine fodder.

We need to get back to blogging.
