One can hear stuff about blogs: not mainstream .. bunch of nerds .. sub-par to print media. Whatever the retort, in general we’d rather lay back and let someone else lather it on. I can see why we’re hesitant to join the conversation. And it is hard to join one when it is already on, yes?
Even if we’ve never said anything before or think we don’t have stuff to say, the key has been that blog sites have made it easy to communicate. We owe it to ourselves to click on Comments like Tom says and see what happens. Treat it as an experiment. See what happens.
