Why Should You Start a Blog?
In the beginning, words were transient. They could move from one person to the next, but they died whenever the were not passed along—even the ones that survived by being passed, over and over, changed a little with each retelling. There was no permanence. And then there was writing.
Writing changed everything. Now, our words go on long after us. The thoughts of men and women who died a thousand years ago are here with us. We can read the books our great grandparents read. The past couple decades have brought tremendous change to what it means to write, however. Our thoughts are now easily shared in electronic format. Blogs are everywhere.
Clearly blogs are important, but, the question is: Why? Why should you start a blog? First Site Guide is sponsoring a $1,500 scholarship for any student who can write the blog post with the best answer to that question.
