Blogs: What are they good for?

Seems like it was only a few years ago that most people didn’t have a blog or blogs, and didn’t know exactly what to do with one.

Family, friends, co-workers, etc. may certainly take the news that you are writing a book as a crazy act. I won’t argue that too hard. It takes a little mental disability in some of us to get those stories to flow. But for the most part, we are all perfectly sane, but we want to do something with all the creativity filling up our empty spots. What chaps me is
