Coated For Ease of Swallowing or Why Blogging Matters

I decided to take a temporary step away from the world of blogging and I’ve had a lot of time to think about what this whole internet thing really means.

Eick Internet

A lot of my fears about what would happen if I stopped updating my blog haven’t happened. I didn’t lose readers, I actually had the highest number of readers about 3 weeks after I stopped writing (I’m still not sure if that’s a good thing).

Stepping away from all the mental masturbation of the web, made me realize something…

None of it really matters, blogging isn’t changing the world.


After meeting people like Jason Boog, Loren Feldman, Chartreuse, and Nathan, it all came down to one thing for me…

The People.

If you truly want to change the world, you aren’t going to do it from your keyboard. Blogging isn’t a way to change the world, but it is a great way to tell everyone after you do. The only way to truly make a lasting difference is to go outside and participate.
