His serene astuteness, Mark Shea, King of all Blogdom, has written a great article on blogging which you can copy to all your friends and family who still don't know what a blog is. I meet these people all the time and find myself looking at them in shocked consternation. "How can you not know what a blog is?"
Reminds me of something Emily Dickinson once said about the life of the mind. (Substituting "blogs" for Emily's "thoughts.")
"How do most people live without any blogs?
How do they have the strength to get out of bed in the morning?"
Mark's piece is rendered even more estimable by his reference in the piece to this lowly blog. Thanks, Mark!
