I decided to try a new weblog community. I’ve been using LiveJournal, but got bored with it, so we’ll see what happens with this!
I’m intrigued by the whole weblog phenomenon. What motivates someone to spend time posting to a website that may or may not be read by others? Do they do it for themselves or for potential readers, and do they write truth or mostly b.s.?
I’ve been reading a number of other weblogs for several months now. I am somewhat addicted to The North Carolina Experiment ( http://www.thestudyofdesign.com/NC/index.php ), although we are polar opposites philosophically. Beth Cherry is an excellent writer, even when she’s writing opinions that make me want to run screaming into the distance! Her opinions are thought-provoking and make for excellent debate in the comments section of her blog. I hope to have a similar effect on people someday.
