Nadine is a coworker. One of the few that compel me to come into work on some days. She is young, a mother, a wife and a woman who doesn’t take crap from anyone, and God forbid you should have the misfortune of crossing her one day.
With that in mind.
Today she tells me in an annoyed tone, and I paraphrase:
“I don’t know what compels me to read your opinion? I don’t know why I read your blog!”
“Ah, but you must read, you have to read,” I replied evilly.
It’s interesting. What drives us to invest so much time and energy in reading the thoughts of others. Do we really care what a specific person has to say about a certain subject? Bloggers are like out of control TV pundits.
I mean bloggers have a thousand and one reasons to blog. But what reason do readers, especially “loyal” readers, have in reading?
The mechanics of this whole ecosystem we call a blogosphere is just damn weird.
