Radio Arthur on blogging

I downloaded a radio show on blogging from Radio Arthur and burnt iit to cd and listened to it in the car on the way home from work last night. It was a fairly interesting radio show although the music breaks between segments of talking were a lot louder than the talkie bits so I was constantly having to fiddle with the volume control. The show started off with Rebecca Blood explaining what blogging is and progressed to two topics about why people blog. They seemed to draw the conclusion that the reason people blog is either they are teenagers and are blogging about their lack/gain of boy/girl friend and how much alchohol they drank last night, or the blogger has a political motive, sometimes with a decidely biased viewpoint. NONE of the blogs I read actually fit into either of those categories (although Neil sometimes mentions how much he drank last night 🙂
Most of the blogs are either similar to diaries or are techie blogs with people either talking about the techie stuff they’ve been doing on their computers (although i guess the latter could be divided into political blogs with the pro/con microsoft viewpoint) 😉
