In defense of the personal blog

I'm well aware that many people feel the personal blog is vain and a pathetic attempt at fame. In some cases that might be the correct. I however believe that the personal blog fulfils an alternate cultural niche. With the demise of the letter and post card the personal blog has become our way of preserving our own history. Yes I realize that what I write here is mostly mundane and of little importance to all but a very small circle of folks. This is my attempt to record my own personal history and leave something for posterity. I realize that I've written posts like this before, but I need to say it again every once in a while, to keep myself honest. ;-)
