    Why do you blog?

    Bloggers out there! ever wonder the purpose of you blogging? Don't tell me blogging is just part of your life, shitting is just part of your life and it has a purpose alright. Imagine all the shit in you for 18 years.
    To me, blogging is just like the newspaper, and bloggers are just like journalist. Mind you, uncertified journalist, a newspaper thats free for all, which MAY contain rubbish as well.

    Some people blog for MONEY ok, imagine, just imagine the newspaper's priority is to earn money, what will happen? Obviously the front page may read "sex for sale" since sex sells (like hot cakes). But hell no? The main purpose of newspaper is to deliver important and vital messages to the public. Of course, money is a sure bonus. If you blog for money, you will still be part of the "newspaper". Ever heard of the section that is always placed right at the bottom? I think it starts with C.

    With millions of blogs in the blogosphere, they can easily be broken down into certain categories similar to the newspaper, particularly Straits Time , Singapore. Some bloggers may choose to report on international news, and give their opinions upon it, some report on daily sights around the local community. We also see blogs on technology, fashion, cars, money, lifestyle...

    Blogging could just be the next media, infact it is already the next media! (think tammynyp).

    However, there are things that sets apart blogging from newspaper. It is considered an alternative media, thus its creditablity is greatly reduced. I am not saying that bloggers do not have a credible background, but one would always consider the newspaper as a more reliable source than blogs. All this for a very simple reason, newspaper and prints ' aritcles have to go through more than 1 person for it to be published, however for blogs, all it takes is one irresponsible teenager to write an article and press a button, tadah! Published, no cost.

    And of course, there isn't a section in nespaper called "personal life", and i think that is the essence of most blogs. Although I seriously detest blogs that follows the likes of "xiaxue" and try to draw attention to their personal life. Seriously, no one gives a damn, about what u did after you woke up, and you peed, and you get horny because you saw a bitch. Whatever. In personal life, I am talking about bloggers able to relate incidents to their own experience, this makes reading news less boring isn't it? No matter which type of blogs, it is always good to add a personal touch to make the blog truly a blog, and not an informative website.

    I must say, in the context of singapore, there are tons of blogs that belongs to people who just wish to report on their personal life, they do not wish for you to read them, they do not appreciate your criticism. Fair enough, I will leave them and their personal life alone. When the blogosphere have too many "xiaxue" around, I think I may start to to hear netizens chanting "who let the dogs out..."

    And the question "Do we have to write controversial posts to draw attention?" Xiaxue did it, Mrbrown did it. So should I jump on the bandwagon, and do it too? I may be able to grab a tv stint along with it! Use your brain. Obviously, do not write controversial topics for the sake of it being controversial, it will not bring out any substance and people will rate you as "fake". Freedom of speech requires responsibilities along with it too! When you are rationale and have evidence backing you up, go ahead post something that u truly believe in, controversial or not. Many bloggers around the world are famous not because they are critical, but because they are able to convince their readers.

    So why do you blog?
