Blogging in one word/sentence

As you all know im preparing for the conference which is in about 10 days and converting an academic thesis into a lively presentation is definately not, as ive tediously gathered today, the easiest job on the world. So to liven it all up, maybe not the best of ideas but hey i will give it a shot (anything to keep me away from actual preparation), I would like your feedback: If you had to describe blogging in this region in one word or a very short inetersting sentence, what would it be? Im expecting the award might go to Schrmm given her wild imagination but i have faith that all you bloggers are quite the intellectuals and creatives that came about in the results ( a little hint: 42.9% of all of you are educated to a degree of masters or higher and 38.5% are in design, art, journalism and multimedia). So lets start rolling them in....

what will Sindibad think of blogging

SCHRmm said...

It's like reading a magazine that you can talk to and ask questions about it's contents.

It's also publishing to a responsive audience without having to woo the establishment into allowing you in.

Hi Maha,
It is voicing suppressed opinions.

Bridging gaps between other people's egos.

Blogging is lobbying people for your cause.

Blogging is Verbalizing.

Blogging is Voyeurism.

Blogging is Photography, where posts are only flashes and comments are stills.

Blogging is trying to reassemble that shattered mirror.

:)

Out of all of those who have something to say to the world, good, bad or ugly only 1% achives it through established media. Blogging is a space for the 99% that's left...

I remembered!!!!!!!!!!
God, I spent the last two days trying to remember the word :P Now as I opened this page it flashed :P
Here goes: Blogging is LOBBYING.

Might not seem as much but I remembered it:P

Hope I have helped you in a way. That should be all for now!
