Stuff to think about

Personal website vs. Blogs

Why do we have them? Why do we make them? For fun, that’s basically it … But what is the real difference between a pw and a blog? This for sure aint no blog, as it was never intended too. The stuff I could post here could be 100 times more than it is now, but I just don’t feel like flooding you all with my (uselles) things I encounter … I’ve chosen for this to be a small piece of me, and not me in total. Yes, blogs are very popular nowadays, but what do you get from it?

People always tend to copy a persons behaviour/style so that they can form a group and not stand alone. It’s in our nature, just face it. And with this given, blogs are extremely popular: you can read what a person does or what he has encountered. With this you try to unify yourself so that you can be part of a group.

Stuf to think about aye?
