The Purpose of Blogging
To me, blogging is a great experience. I blogged last semester and I learned a whole new way to write. I was forced to think very critically and open my mind to the world around me, not just my life as a college student. Posting comments to other blogs also forced me to think "outside the box". I had form opinions of subjects that normally I would ignore. Just like Andrew Olmstead, I enjoy being able to meet other people "virtually". It adds a sense of community being able to connect and share opinions with others we have not met. Sometimes, we are intimidated to say what we think due to the person’s status, looks, etc. However, through blogging, intimidation is not a factor at all.
