Isn't it a wonder........

According to Henry James Foy, There are two types of people in this world: those who blog and those who don't.He further states that by the end of 2007, there should be around 150 million bloggers all over the world - the same as the population of Bangladesh!
Isn't it a wonder that the phenomenon of blogging has grown by leaps and bounds in such a short period of time? Blogs are the 'in' things! I guess it speaks volumes about the urge that more and people feel to connect with other people, to get their private, personal and even intimate thoughts and ideas conveyed, across physical spaces and barriers that had erstwhile been prevailing for ages.

I fully agree with u.
Dude, it is really the age of self-expression, even one's trivial thoughts and feelings are increasingly being given accomodation in the cyberspace. People who earlier would just be content with secretly penning down their fancies or fears in the pages of their diaries are unlikely to have evolved into bloggers overnight! Rather it is a whole new breed of individuals who want their spaces - even the private and the intimate ones - shared with the whole wide world.

Hi Anindo!
Needless to say, I liked this post of yours. I think, we are getting connected more in the cyberspace thesedays, than in the real world!

Thesedays Blogs aren't merely intimate accounts.............. they are much much more! And why not? When the bloggers can also earn through their blogs, they eventually are lured by lucre to influence millions by their outpourings. Often, we also get to know that the corporate world does whatever they can to design & maintain blogs to see their own goals & targets being fulfilled.
And wonder of wonders, even the so-called giantslike NASA and the UN reconcile observations with the accounts of the individual or the unorganised bloggers!

As much as blogs and bloggers get connecting with friends and strangers alike, people are increasingly getting addicted to blogging which is becoming worrisome as a phenomenon. In the extreme, people are suffering the withdrawal pangs BAD-ly, being without internet connection for even a small duration, as for them, it's NO BLOGGING, NO LIFE!!!!
Hope you never suffer from BAD - acronym for Blog Addiction Disorder - I know you won't.
