I just don't get it.
If a blog is written by someone famous, or someone really interesting like someone riding a donkey around the world, sure, that could make interesting reading.
But it seems to me that the majority of people out there have nothing to say and they say it really badly - how can reading other people's poorly written diaries be at all interesting?
It seems to me that bloggers are just nursing each other's egos with all the networking that we see on Myspace and co. Is there more to it that i'm missing?
It's been suggested to me that i should promote my site through myspace and others but i just an't face going through all the drivel and spending hours and hours writing cutesy emails when i could be developing content.

2. 99.9999999999% of blogs have virtually no readers (including mine). If it's there as a record of something, for some future reference, that doesn't matter; if it's there as a an attempt to join the in-crowd, it's sad (mine isn't - honest!).
3. So unless you have a reason to blog (or you are a teenager), don't bother.

The teen bloggers that we have just now are just makign their presence felt, they will blog about pretty much anything, it's almost like peopele's online diaries.
We also have the "old school" bloggers who have been around for years. it's these blogers who seam to have the real traffic. Generaly the sucessful blogs are the topic blogs that have established traffic.

But look, some people DO manage to get their videos or whatever seen by a few million views on myspace so there must be some kind of viral angle that can be worked by someone networking dilligently all day?
