How important are Blogs for you?   [Edit]

Survey period: 19 Sep 2005 to 25 Sep 2005

They're everywhere, and in many cases have taken over from traditional news as the place to read about - and announce - important information. But do you use them? (Suggested by matthias s.)

I have mine for a number of reasons.
I have a lot of friends around the world that I like to keep in touch with, and rather than sending them all emails, if i post interesting (or not) things about what I'm doing with my life, they can comment on it. The same works in reverse, I read their blogs to find out what they have been up to.
I also use it to pass on my thoughts on hardware/software I come across. Every so often I'll have a rant on it as a safer option than screaming out of the window.
It's also easier to manage than a traditional 'personal website'.

Something I also like is going back to the first post in my blog (can't do that at the moment since I switched to blogger, but they are all safely backed up), then flicking through them one by one to the present. It's interesting to see how my opinions of stuff has changed. It's a lot like a personal diary, only public so I have to read between the lines to find out what I was thinking when I wrote it.
