Tuesday Quotes: About Blogging



Your blog is your unedited version of yourself.

A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.

Blogging is the new poetry.

Breathe. Know that the Internet has no eraser.



Game changing innovations are few and far between. They are usually simple concepts to describe, but when they arrive, it takes time to fully realize their importance and impact. Television was a game changer, mobile phones were a game changer, and blogging is also one.

If the principal thinks blogging isn't educational, he needs his head examined. He should be seeking out every student blogger in the school and giving them special time to blog more...and giving them extra credit besides.

Blogging is like sex. You can't fake it. You can't fake passion.


It is performance. Each blog post a show, sometimes an opera, sometimes a thirty-second commercial. Like a show, it may start with a bang, lead you along from song to song, have a great climactic moment, then leave the audience wanting more.

Blogs, social networks, newspapers, any other form of publication--all have social aspects to them. It is a spectrum really, with social networks at one extreme and a 19th century novel at the other.

I just LOVE the post! I love the cartoon about Descartes!

I also loved your suggestion about your secret Sunday excursions. I just wish my kids were still young enough to do this (which they're not). Think it would work with my husband?

I so enjoy your visits, and I love coming to visit you. I will do it again soon.

All the best,
