I am constantly hearing blogs are outdated. I still jumped in the fray. Not because I don't agree necessarily. Web logs are outdated. I really don't need to read somebody's daily journal. it was interesting when it was new. People flocked to it. But I think mostly because it was novel. With a little internet savvy, hundreds of people might read about what you do day in and day out. If your are still interested, check out Twitter.
Its old news now. Things have changed. The personal websites I like best are the sharing of ideas, not journals or logs.
Literally by chance I stumbled upon a "blog' titled Simple Justice by Scott Greenfield. This guy writes about thoughts and ideas to share with those willing to read. I am now a reader and this dirt lawyer now digs criminal law. His "blog" proves my point though. He doesn't journal. He shares ideas and thoughts about interesting topics worth reading in my opinion. It is not a web log. It is a web-based platform for sharing ideas - and interesting ones.
I really would like to get away from the term "blog". Several writers on the net deserve more. Don't click the link to read a journal. Click it to share ideas.
