I view blogging as an art form. I don’t mean to sound pretentious, but I’m sure to some it will come across that way. Let me explain:
If you are doing something other than niche blogging, where you focus on one topic, you are kind of creating a collage of ideas. You can’t quite categorize blogging as a writing endeavor, because often you are adding pictures, video clips, and other people’s ideas. So you add all of these different mediums together, both things that you and others have created, and you end up with something unique to each person.
If you don’t like collage think of it as curating. I’m not trying to make someone wanking off on their computer at home sound more important than it is. What I am trying to do is make people that are interested in these sorts of things see it in different light. You are wanking off on your computer at home, but you might just do something individualistic and interesting while doing so.
