Us bloggers, we’re the online counterparts of university block-mates: up way past midnight, typing furiously, in and out of each others’ rooms, slamming doors, hooting at wisecracks and coming alive at the Cinderella hour, as if the magic of the moment will bind us in a sorority bracelet and the globe will light up in shimmering blips as we warm the continents with our hit counters. Either that or we’re just a bunch of over(net)worked, over-stimulated insomniacs.


Blogging is therefore to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.

~ Andrew Sullivan, in Why I Blog
