Blogging - nothing new under the sun
Denis Diderot once wrote:
“In the space of a few hours I had been through a host of situations which the longest life can scarcely provide in its whole course. I had heard the genuine language of the passions; I had seen the secret springs of self-interest and self-love operating in a hundred different ways: I had become privy to a multitude of incidents and I felt I had gained in experience.”
Although he was describing an eighteenth century epistolary novel, he could have just as well be talking about blogging.
