As if it isn’t enough: the random joke email , chain letters, Evites, Mob hits, pokes, Meetups, etc.
Well, there is also the occasional welcomed communication:
So why do we blog?
We blog to share, and we share because we care. We want to be heard, to be found, bought from, sold to, “friended”, collaborated with, retweeted and even married.
The above photo comes from a blog whose raison d’être is self entitled, “Things You Would Know if we Didn’t Blog Incessantly.”
So why do you blog?
