What is a blog then?

From Going Home: A "Change This" Manifesto by Robert Paterson
It is... a generative space in which we can give birth to our lost voice. As we find our voice,we begin to wake up. We start to become human again. How does the blog awaken us? This open space invites us to speak in public. Hesitant, at first we speak the old way. But now and then the occasional real voice pops out. As it does, others notice and drop by and encourage us. Encouraged, we use our real voice more often. More people drop by and encourage us. Our voice is so strong that it can be heard around the entire globe. We are amazed to find others far away who can hear us and who have the same tone. Community begins to form.
