Why read a blog?

Originally published September 28, 2003

I kinda like this explanation:

Another aspect of the 'will weblogs replace traditional journalism' debate that concerns me is this: why do we read blogs? I personally read them for a quick view of someone else's life, a quick news/politics/sports fix, a link to a webpage I might otherwise have never read/discovered, and as a doorway to the web. (Visit one of your favourite blogs, read an entry or two, follow a link, read that, follow another link - you get the picture. You could easily spend a day journeying through the web using a blog as the starting point.)

Yeah, that works for me, too.
