This week, I have been a bit busy. Though I did update my blog, I didn’t read most of the blogs that I regularly read. Now, when I login to Google Reader, I see that there are 100+ unread posts! I have so much to read now! This makes me ask the question, why do we read blogs?
Let’s take my case. Even before I started blogging, I have been a regular reader of so many blogs for a long time. What started off as just a time pass, became a full-fledged activity. Reading blogs became something like reading newspapers everyday. I never left/leave any post unread even if I visit a blog after say, one week and find that there are some 10 posts unread. So much so that reading blogs has taken precedence to reading books for me! And yes, I enjoy reading blogs more than writing one. 🙂 Less effort needed for that. 😛
Apart from getting to read on a wide range of topics and knowing different viewpoints, aren’t we actually getting to see a slice of the life of a person in his/her blog? Is that what is interesting about reading blogs? The more you are able to relate to what a person writes, the more a blog appeals to you, the more you enjoy it, isn’t it? Why am I rambling now? Has something happened to me thinking about the time I need to spend on reading so many posts? 😛 On a serious note, let’s hear it from you all. Why do you read blogs? What got you hooked to blogs? While you folks answer the questions, let me start reading the posts waiting to be read. Oh yes, please answer the questions.
