    Blogging Survey

    Post  JadeShao on Fri Jan 08, 2010 1:16 am

    “Dear My-Fantastic-Blog (and all the other wonderfully bored strangers who found their way to my online ramblings –Good Job!), as I was saying…today was a bad day, I like mint chocolate chip ice cream, hydrogen bonds are the strongest of the intermolecular forces, I am in serious need of a vacation…and yea…”
    Not that long ago, blogs were one of those things only some people had and it wasn’t a very big deal. The word blog — it works as both noun and verb — is short for Web log. The term was coined in 1997 to describe a website where you could post daily scribbling or journal-style entries, about whatever you like. Today, it turns out that some people actually have interesting thoughts on a regular basis. According to senior Winston Chang, “Blogging is a way of putting down memories and being able to look back at turning points in my life. Since sophomore year, my online journal has allowed me to muse and keep myself accountable to my own goal in the midst of everything else that’s going on.”

    Blogs have the ability to give every single person a voice, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. To think that just like the people who write those fancy opinion columns for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, you too can share your thoughts, vent, and complain to the public at large. Alan Kha, “I began blogging during my freshman year after subscribing to 15 Minute Lunch. I really had no idea where it would take me, but I've been more or less consistently blogging since then. People say whining doesn't do anything, but Moufflets has allowed me to make something productive out of them.”
    We may even be in the golden age of blogging, a quirky Camelot moment in Internet history when some guy in his underwear with too much free time can take down a Washington politician.

    Not that (too) long ago, blogs were one of those (the) things only some (a few) people had (comma) and it wasn’t a very big deal. The word blog (quotations around blog)— it works as both noun and verb (and) is short for Web log. The term was coined in 1997 to describe a website where you could post daily scribbling or journal-style entries, about whatever you like. Today, it turns out that some people actually have interesting thoughts on a regular basis.

    Blogs have the ability to give every single person a voice, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant (awk). To think that just like the people who write those fancy opinion columns for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, you too can share your thoughts, vent, and complain to the public at large (reword). Alan Kha, “I began blogging during my freshman year after subscribing to 15 Minute Lunch. I really had no idea where it would take me, but I've been more or less consistently blogging since then. People say whining doesn't do anything, but Moufflets has allowed me to make something productive out of them.”

    Blogs have the ability to give every single person a voice, no matter how small. To think that just like the people who write those fancy opinion columns for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, you too can share your thoughts, vent, and complain about frustrating issues.
