second thoughts on blogs

I talked to the colleagues I am working on blogs with and discussed how we had found blogging, some points in no particular order were :
•blogging needs a purpose – but does not need an audience or rather you can be the author of your own blog, though it is better to have a wider audience!
•feedback is always useful – not spam of course which one of us got
•blogs can be recreational or academic or of course both
•there is always an audience for whatever you write – not everyone agrees with this though
•you can and many do the blogs how they like but we guess the reader wants brief entries with clear points
•it is not easy to get started on blogs – it calls for language skills and knowing there can be an audience beyond those you know can be intimidating
•interesting that some people mail blog sites privately rather than commenting directly
Perhaps nothing new there but interesting how we had common ideas of what a blog should ideally look like and different ideas about the value of feedback.
