To Blog or not to Blog

A friend of mine has ALWAYS got something to say about anything, whether it be on television, in the news, or just day to day observations. We have a phrase that we use every time he watches something on TV that really "gets his goat". We call it "finger waggin TV". The kind of story that makes you point your finger at the TV and rant. Like the ID card issue currently sweeping the UK, or the fact that Intel have teamed up with Microsoft to provide Digital Rights Management through hardware. You name it, he's got something to say about it.

So, having had a blog now for over a year, I keep telling him (every time he rants) that he should have a blog of his own. Blogs, by their very nature, need updating regularly to attract and maintain a readership, and because he always has something to say, he would do quite well in the "new daily content" ratings war that blogs seem to thrive on.

I think he may crack one day and succumb to the blog mentality, but until then I will do my utmost to either report what he has to say, or get him to publish it himself. Maybe one day.

If you have something to say, then get a blog. Getting it off your chest is "probably" one of the best feeling you can get.
