The only person in my immediate family that doesn't have a blog is my father. (two sisters, one brotha, and one mother) Why do we do it? Is it Narcissism? Hobby? Ranting? Collective memory?
It's fun to watch them start blogging. Whats a permalink? Whats a TrackBack? How do I get ranked high on Google? Whats Technorati? You can make money doing this!? How do I post pictures? How do I post videos?
My sister Rebecca is so creative she might just explode at any moment. She just wants to share but the interface often gets in her way. My other sister JJ has been blogging since August 1st and she has already caught onto it too. Did you know the United States government is looking to veterinarians for help in the event of a bio-terror attack? My mom also has a blog but she's so afraid new technologies that the interface gets in the way.
My brother is about as tech savvy as anyone I know so he doesn't need any help. His blog has progressed way faster than mine ever did. In fact he has a full on video blog with RSS 2.0 feeds and everything! It took me like a year and a half to know what he has already figured out in like six months.
Either way it will interesting to see who keeps up with it and who doesn't.
