It's simply amazing how many blogs there are these days. And how many more there could be. There are still people out there who do not know what a blog is. If they did, there'd be more blogs. Not that we need more blogs.

This trend, or new use of technology, must say something about the state of the world. Do so many people feel the need to "publish"? Do they have no one in their lives to share the story with? Do they have so much time on their hands that they can fritter it away in a narcissitic effort of broadcasting their thoughts to the world? Do they imagine anyone really cares about their thoughts?

Fact is, I know more folks who do not blog than do. In fact, I am not sure that I know anyone in my group of friends who has a blog. And many of them do not know what a blog is. They've never read my blog. They don't know I have a blog. They've never read anyone's blog.

I can't say I want them to read my blog. The blogs I read are by people I don't know, personally. Wouldn't recognize them if I met them on the street. Nor would they know me.

Curious, though, the number of blogs all written by people who don't know one another and will never meet, probably, and by people who read other people's blogs daily, usually, but will never meet them in person.
