A number of my friends and family have asked why I’ve returned to blogging after all this time. There are myriad reasons I could offer. However, Fred Wilson said it best:
There is something about the personal blog, yourname.com, where you control everything and get to do whatever the hell pleases you. There is something about linking to one of those blogs and then saying something. It’s like having a conversation in public with each other. This is how blogging was in the early days. And this is how blogging is today, if you want it to be.
The freedom is great. As is the renaissance in blogging. I’m hoping it produces some interesting new conversations and connections. Just like the old days!
