Blogging is folk music

Pete Seger was on NPR this morning talking to Bob Edwards about his latest collaborative CD, Seeds --The Songs of Pete Seeger, Volume 3. He said Michele Green, who wrote a song on the CD called "From Way Up Here", didn't start writing folk songs until she was in her 40s. She had told Pete that she'd like to do what he was doing, and asked how to go about it. He said you look in the paper, and then you write a song about what's going on. He said you wouldn't get rich, but you'd meet the best people in the world.

You could say the same things about blogging.
