Can you imagine a world where everyone has a blog?

You would stay updated on anything and everything that everyone else in the world is doing. You would be able to contact any particular person, even those that you’ve just met. You can know what a certain guy/ girl likes through the stuff they like to blog about, or stalk them for that matter (but I guess facebook is already there for that).

But life is more than just a few snippets or 140 characters.

I particularly feel that so much information is lost just because people don’t write their thoughts more often. Older a d wiser people usually don’t have blogs because this is something they are not used to; imagine all the words of wisdom we are never able to read just because no one told them about it.

It’s not just all about SEO, making money online, entertainment, travel, arts, and stuff, sometimes it is in a personal blog where you get the most meaningful life lessons from. You get to read all about what a person has been through and even keep a particular bad thing he has experienced from happening to you. Here is where you can actually learn important lessons that you don’t have to experience first hand on a day to day basis.

I myself have encouraged people around me to blog. I have not been too successful but one person is better than nothing. Don’t think of them as competition but a venue to get more information. Let’s not be greedy and keep all this fun to ourselves.

I know a story of a man who came from a small community, and he would travel miles to the city just to blog about the misconceptions the internet has about his small town. Imagine if he did not do this, people will forever have wrong ideas about the place he grew up in. In time, he was able to petition for an internet connection is his village. Seriously, the world will be a better place if more people were like him.

Most people who blog belong to a certain age group; and those that are too young or too old usually don’t have blogs, which I think is such a shame. Who would represent these groups? If a survey says that most people in the internet prefer something, is this really a good survey if it is not representative of all age levels? Imagine how easy it would be able to get a demographic from all of them if everyone was active on the internet. The world would be a much smaller, better place. On the other hand, I’m not too sure if it is good to encourage people to get cooped up at home. There has to be a healthy balance between social and virtual life.

Indeed it would be easier and much more convenient if everyone had a blog.

No one is too young or too old to start one. For those who don’t have blogs, think of all the knowledge you are keeping from the world and how you can write for the betterment of mankind.

“You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald
