On blogging

The thing I like about blogs is that it lets you really understand what it's like to live someone else's life.

If you want to know what it's like to be a nurse or raise 5 children in New York City or work in an inner city school, then change careers, there's a blog that can show you.

Of course, there are also blogs with a more specific theme - like job hunting/career advice, human resources, or genealogy.

There are dozens of personal finance blogs.

Need help figuring out how much money you need to buy a house?The internet has you covered.

There are pop culture blogs and fashion mockery blogs,

Some are professionally written, some are not, but they all open up the world a bit more.

  1. So true. It's so hard to imagine that 15, 20 years ago we had no access to other people like this - intimate access to other people who show themselves to be just like us. My kids have already learned that the computer can tell us anything we want to know - how to cook a chicken, the lyrics to a song, someone's opinion on the current election. I could never go back!
