Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Warning:  I never said that my thoughts made sense or were even rational at times.  This is me just trying to put some of my thoughts down on paper to give others food for thought.

One of the beautiful things of being a blogger is being able to share your opinions.  Blogging gives us a forum to state what’s on our mind, while the online atmosphere affords us a freedom to express our thoughts that does not exist in face-to-face dealings with others.  Yet, I can’t help but wonder if this is always a good thing.  Has blogging made us too free with our opinions?  Are we more inclined to state what we think without considering the consequences or impact on others? 

I’m not talking about books, although this certainly is the case in the majority of bloggers that I follow.  (The Mockingjay furor has yet to subside and I know that there will be some hurt feelings when it all ends.)  I’m asking about this in general.  There is a demotivational poster about blogging that states something to the effect that never have so many with so little to say said so much to so few.  I can’t help but think there is some truth behind this.  If we start spouting off on our opinions without backing them up or at least considering an alternative opinion, what are we really doing here?  Then again, does it matter?

So, why blog?  If what we say is so inconsequential, does it matter?  Did we start blogging for attention or more for an alternative place to record our thoughts?   Or do I just need to shut up now? 😉
