To Blog or Not To Blog

Earlier today myself and some fellow bloggers engaged in a debate about blogging with a non-blogger. This fellow maintained that blogging brings down the English language because of its democracy and its generally vernacular tone. Well, the bloggers disagreed vehemently, arguing that blogging is an easy way to enhance communication with fellow citizens of Earth and isn't that what life is all about? Furthermore, most blogs are not mindless nor do they slopify the English language; indeed, some people hone writing skills right here in cyberspace. What do you think? Leave a comment with your thoughts. Are blogs to be praised or razed? Note: remember that by definition participation means affirmation; thus, all comments, even negative ones, prove that blogs are useful and should be encouraged.

Check out Dave Hutton's blog for further discussion of this issue (the fact that I can do this validates blogging).

My answer is 'yea' -- oh, wait, was I suppose to vote?! Down with Dyck!
