Interesting that this should pop up now.

About 20 of us have been meeting to explore activism on various levels, and the consensus at this point is that we'll start with our own community. Juneau, our home, has a number of issues that have not been resolved to everyone's satisfaction.

At the next meeting our premise is that each of us will put on the table, so to speak, our passion. One person's passion, for instance, is AIDS, someone else's is bicycling to reduce parking congestion and to address our petroleum-based lifestyle, another's is to elect someone to the City Assembly who shares our concerns... Our idea is to pick up a few 'do-able' projects to get aboard.

We will be brainstorming ideas. I've gotten to wondering if a blog might be a way to reach more people on a wider level.

I had to set one up account-wise to respond to a friend's post when she started one. I thought that was a bit pushy (I think it was Blogspot). I never posted anything to the one I set up. I spend enough time writing things in other venues, I am not interested in starting up what might be the writing of otherwise great ruminations, only to have them disappear into a black hole.

Blogs are written by people who can't get their voice heard in the 'real world' There is, generally, a good reason for that.

Quite why anyone would wish to read the diatribe of people who have nothing interesting to say, is beyond me

ahem -- I have a livejournal. I don't use it as a soapbox (much) but as a way to share thoughts and happenings with a group of friends -- more like a shared diary/newsletter. I don't expect it to be read by all and sundry, but it's a nice and easy way to stay connected to people I care about.

But I suppose LiveJournals are not "blogs" in the strictest sense of the word. ...

But I enjoy reading several "real" blogs, too. Not all bloggers "have nothing to say" (and how do you know until you try reading some of them?).

For what it's worth, my LiveJournal is here: CapriUni.

I'm not convinced there is a difference between a livejournal and a blog. Live journal = on-line diary = web log, surely. Anyway, podcasting is where its at these days.

Many years ago, an author was asked how to write well, get published..etc...
He answed (paraphrased) "First you need to decide whether you have something you NEED to say, or whether you just want to have written a book."

I haven't decided yet whether I NEED to have a web log. (I do know that I don't like 'newspeak' much, and 'blog' sounds a lot like people who say 'shrooms' for mushrooms.)

You're probably right. It may just be that I'm biased, but it just strikes me that LiveJournals (or LJ's) have a diffeent general vibe about them than Blogspot blogs... more... laid back, conversational, and less soapboxy. But that could be a self-selection thing: The people who find LiveJournal's layout and organization attractive tend to be laid back, more conversational folks.

I know I got my own journal so that it would be easier to carry on online conversations with good friends who had journals, not because I wanted to be a famous online personality, or anything (though I have made new friends from people who read what I've written and like it, which is nice. And I probably wouldn't have met them otherwise).

(Oh, and I'm coming up on my three-year LiveJournal anniversary).

blogs...

...the symptom of a generation of solipsitic fools who like to hear themselves talk -- read their own musings -- SO much that they can't imagine a world that doesn't give a damn what they think.

...the symptom of a generation of "information age" fools who have confused the ability to surf the web with the ability to research a subject. They then add to the cycle by themselves (and their blogs) becoming the "source" for a multitude of other blogger/"researchers" to cite as proof of their ability to be informed on a subject.

"I think that, from now on, before I let any of you record, I am going to ask for a blog of the time you've spent rehearsing your parts. THAT is my new plan!"

"Wow. We gotta get some blogs."

"No, we gotta get a new producer."

"Are you a blogger?"

Solipsistic is a fine word, but you might want to proofread before you hit "enter", since misspelling it undercuts the impression you are seeking to leave.

Ron,

I appreciate good spelling. I appreciate good grammar as well. And when I am reading posts on a forum, I have a great appreciation for those who obviously proof-read their text before submitting. It shows admirable care, fine education, good breeding....you know, all those good things we should all strive for (except the good breeding thing -- not much we can do about that'n).

But, just as I can appreciate those whose posts are carefully drafted, I can't tell you how lame I think it that ANYONE would point out another's typo -- especially as a put-down, a one-upsman dig, a gauge of that person's character. It is the mark of an incredibly small mind, a pathetically petty jerk to do so.

As I sat down one evening,

A forty year old barrista to me
   these words did say

I see you that you are a blogger
   and not just a common bum
'Cause nobody but a blogger
   stirs his latte with his thumb

My lover was a blogger,

If you'd pour coffee on it

Wrong again, John Hardly!!! If you would look at some blogs by going to Google Blog (beta) and typing in a search term related to your interests, you would find a wealth of creative and fascinating personal web sites. Like mine, for instance. I noted it as a GUEST back up at the beginning of this thread.

It is a good way to keep one's friends and family apprised of your doings. ( For such a good looking guy, you sure have a narrow outlook....)
