    Why journal writing on the Web?
    by Jesse S. Somer

    Why journal writing on the Web? Blogs are journals giving anyone anidentity, and an awesome forum for sharing thoughts and ideas with others of similar interests.

    Journal writing used to be a private, personal experience done late atnight, scribbling hardly legible thoughts and daily occurrences down onpaper amidst the haze of a barely lit room. When read over on a later dateone could find connections and coincidences that sometimes brought deeperinsights into the meaning of life. Also, old ideas could be rekindled thatotherwise may have been forgotten forever.

    In the 21st century a strange new type of journal writing is becomingprevalent in contemporary society. Called Blogs, these are journals used bythe masses. Why are people sharing their thoughts instead of keeping themprivate like the days of old? These journals are found on the World Wide Web and can be used for a number of purposes. The Web is a public sphere and human souls are realizing that sharing their ideas and beliefs can have that same epiphany type of effect on others as the old type of journal had on the personal writer. People are also feeling that they have an identity, and putting it on the Web is a great way of expressing themselves. Anyone can do it, and besides words, visuals can also be integrated into the journal, often making the Blogs very appealing to readers/ viewers.

    Blogs are becoming an excellent way of sharing information on any and everysubject. Instead of searching Google for general sites about surfing, or 60's music, one can go straight to a Blog on the subject in question and read daily thoughts and ideas by others with the same interest as well as expert points of view. If you own a business, you can see what entrepreneurs already based in your proposed field feel about the industry. As it's a journal structure, the reader can see how certain individual's beliefs have changed over time.

    As the world around us is constantly in transition, humans have alwayslooked for better ways of living and growing as a species. The InformationAge has helped our society in innumerable ways. On-line journals arebecoming the next step in giving voice to every person who has access to acomputer and the Net. As well as putting one's identity 'out there' with the masses, people are hearing the inner workings of minds with similarinterests. Blogs are a phenomenon helping to create a more interconnected,socially aware global community.
