In response to Colin’s answer to my question on why I like reading blog posts so much:
“Because blog posts feel more permanent than social media posts causing people to share wholesome, thoughtful pieces (generally speaking) to their personal blogs rather than spewing acid-filled buckets of hate.”
That must be it. It is their content, put up at their ‘home’ so to speak. Not just some drive-by-and-dump-your-crap-quickly kind of thing.
It is personal, it is who they are, an insight into their lives and hearts and minds. Something to enjoy and learn from.
