So websites came along, some decided to pick up a book on HTML/XML/*SP web-page language and learn how to make webpages. Great. I now know what all these funky little
< tags > do, and hell, I could make one great site... But the truth about websites, there's no reason to spend your time on something that nobody is going to visit... Target audiences are in my opinion the key to a good website, demand driven by 'stickiness', the stuff that keeps people coming back for more.... Provide a valuable service... Google, Amazon, Yahoo, Ebay they've all figured ways to keep you coming back... Providing you with information, services, products... So, what information could I possibly provide you that you really want to have? This is how i'm going to market my blog... I want to give you insight into my life. My photo's, my stories, my music, my thoughts, my web-ified-life, my telætas.

Quote from Guy Kawasaki
Blogger. n. Someone with nothing to say writing for someone with nothing to do.

After blogging for over a year now, I've started to see some benefits... One, I'm getting older. I'm not going to remember everything I did, certain numbers, websites, etc.. I'm not going to be able to tell/show everyone, everystory, everypicture... but there have been times where I have said... You know? I wrote an blogpost on that topic, would you like to read it? Its a bit of a historical record. Documenting what I was thinking at that time in my life... Maybe my writing style has developed, and I've become a better communicator... maybe I just feel better not keeping it all inside.... I really hope that future generations will be able to read this text, and say, that was my great, great, great, great grandfather... who was around at the start of this internet thing... What's the internet they may ask? It's just so much engrained into everyday life that it has become part of the way we interact with the world...
