” Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted.” — Jules Renard
What do you think?
Do I agree?
Of course, I do. Any one would agree with this statement. But it’s not the complete picture, is it?
Writing is a lonely pastime. One can pontificate without being interrupted but we don’t get the benefit of debate. We share our opinions and that is it. What could be counterarguments, we don’t get the benefit of those as till the writing is read by others, they won’t be able to share their opinions.
In comparison, blogging is a different cup of tea altogether. When we write a post and state our opinions, stories, or poems, immediately after posting them, we get feedback from others.
Though we write without interruptions, we do get the advantage of counter-arguments when others share their views on our writing. I think this way we get the best of both worlds. We can say what we want without anyone stopping us or correcting us and yet if we are in the wrong, or our views are outdated, people out there help to set us right.
And thinking along these lines, I would say that blogging is even better than writing books because an author doesn’t know how people would react to their story till the book is completed, published, and sold. While a blogger gets instant feedback and has the advantage when any flaws or discrepancies are caught by their readers and corrected there and then.
