Whuffie

The New York Times ran an article on the addictiveness of blogging. They seemed unable to pinpoint the motivation behind it. But I’ve been lurking (wow, that’s such a 90s term, isn’t it?) – or reading my friends’ blogs for years now, without bothering to comment on them or maintain one of my own. My thought: blogs are good because they allow you to keep up with people’s lives without having to endure all that pesky facetime. For those times when you’re too socially unmotivated for actual personal contact, one-on-one e-mailing, or (shudder) picking up a phone and really talking to someone.

Blogs – When being a pen pal is too emotionally demanding, but still a step up from Virtual Friends™.
