Blogs are not exactly new...they've been a large component of the internet for quite a few years now. They are web pages, but not every web page is a blog. the term blog is essentially the short form of 'web log', where the user (traditionally) writes about their thoughts/experiences on specific subject matter (there are tech blogs, car blogs, sex blogs, personal life blogs, and inumerable more).

They've not really revolutionized society to date, so I don't expect it in the future, but over the years they have come to be considered a form of media, and are now frequently used in both a social networking and news dispersement capacity. There is also a growing trend of using blogs for adverstising.

Only you can decide if blogs are special. You can decide to read them, ignore them, or write one yourself. There are several free blog sites around.

I like technical blogs etc. but I have found a lot of personal blogs are pretentious and self indulgant.

I tried writing one once then realised I'm boring as shit, why would anyone want to read about me? So I stopped after the first post.That made me realise that the people who write the 'about my life' style blogs get to that same point and plough straight on so they must either be genuinely interesting (small percentage) or totally up themselves (larger percentage) to think they are important/interesting enough for people to read about.

(I'll post script this to, try to avoid offense, with the re-iteration that I am talking about blogs that are entirely a run down of someones life not the ones that discuss the news or whatever.)

A test site for projects, a way of expressing to the world what I find, that's what my blog does. Let me put this straight:

Myspace = emo kids;
Blogger = no budget, generally noobs, some content;
any other social net blog = goto Myspace;

Wordpress = woot("!");

I used to be like: man blogs are uber gay, but then I discovered that popular culture has greatly deformed the term blog. Now, I consider myself a blogger, and I like it.
