As I was reading my New New Media book at work, none other than the man himself, Professor Levinson, walks in the door. He sends his best Professor Strate! Anyways, back to blogging. Blogging is something that my mother has absolutely no idea about but something that I find useful everyday. I don't have a personal blog, but I consult many on a daily basis. I don't watch the news or read the paper, but I check the blogs with the news that is interesting to me. When I open my Safari, the first thing I check are my music blogs. What beautiful beautiful things music blogs are. Where else would I learn about new music before it's discovered months later by non-music blog checkers? Then it's time to check Perez Hilton for my celebrity gossip. Followed by fashion and photo blogs.
Blogs allow for all different types of information to be seen by all different types of people. Giving those people the ability to comment on this information and interpret it however they want. It gives the blogger a voice and they spread their message or maybe just a video they thought was interesting on Youtube. They don't have to wait for someone to edit their work, the blogger edits it and clicks one button that releases it into cyberspace. It's easy, free and fun.
