So…what is different about a blog than say a bulletin board, a LiveJournal, a Facebook page, or some other kind of forum? Why would anyone want to read my blatherings? I don’t see any friends pages or community-style trappings here. On LiveJournal you kind of feel like you’re in a village. You have other people all around. There are constant signs of them. They are in your friends list, they comment on your posts, there are communities made up of lots of members. Here on Word Press I could hear a pin drop because there doesn’t seem to be a soul around. I’m going to have to figure this out.
