Forbes Goes After Bloggers

In a recent article, Forbes bashes bloggers big time:
“Blogs started a few years ago as a simple way for people to keep online diaries. Suddenly they are the ultimate vehicle for brand-bashing, personal attacks, political extremism and smear campaigns.”

On my blog, you will find all that, and more (although I always strive to be as objective as I can to all matters). And I think that blogs are the PERFECT VEHICLE to do exactly that. In the past, normal people did not have a VOICE (beyond their constitutional right to vote, which btw I don’t have here in US). Now, people through their blogs can rant, can put the record straight, can blow up some steam. And they should be free to do so. It’s their personal corner on the web, it’s their virtual home. And if some of these blogs have become too “popular” for some people’s tastes (like Russell Beattie‘s for example), well, blame the blogger’s ability to write interesting stuff. đŸ˜‰
