Quoting Swept Away
If I were to write poetry or a song lyrics, why should I put it online for free? Unless we really need an audience and we cant get it elsewhere, so we hit cyberspace and beg for comments.
This is such a sad way to look at artistic expression. Like the only reason to do anything artistic is for monetary gain. Thankfully not everyone thinks like that, otherwise we would live in an even more corporatized world than we already do.
Art can be our theraphy at moments of depression, which brings us close to Insanityville. It is cheaper and safer than drugs or alcohol. But sometimes, a blog is more like an expression of turbulent minds rathers than poetic souls.
I know a few arrogant people who blog. They can write, but its pathetic, how nobody reads it and then start posting their blog entries in message boards.
