Simon Reynolds, in December, marking the 20th anniversary of Blissblog:
I honestly can't see that anyone has invented a better format than the blog, at least for what I want to do.
Simon's entire post is dripping with flattering remarks about how enjoyable and rewarding blogging is.
Those of us in the 20+ year blogging club obviously love it - why else would we continue to do it? It isn't because it is the best way to reach the most people. Simon writes:
Blogging is effectively narrowcast, but it retains an aura of broadcast, the tantalizing possibility of reaching more than the pre-converted, the already tuned-in. (In that sense, not unlike the terrestrial broadcast pirate radio station).
I love the idea of a blog being like a pirate radio station. Consider my flag flying proudly! Arrr!
The entire post is a must-read for bloggers.
