Fred Wilson is an open blogger.  He writes skillfully about his opinions and observations and inspires me to do the same. 

the blogging revolution is more than a free publishing platform and a new model for media. It is self expression at its core. It is people being who they are, talking the way they talk, and doing it in public. (link)

In fact, it’s the honesty that makes writing easy.  

So many people say they’ll start a blog and never do.  It’s a combination of the lizard brain telling them to watch what they say and the fact that blogging takes work, if you look at that way.  It’s ironic that the people that want to blog and talk a lot are the less likeliest to do it. 

Blogs require openness and revelation.  For me, writing is an opportunity to get it out of my system.  My words are not even meant to provoke but a chance for me to be accountable for something I’m trying to put together in my head.  I want to figure it all out. 

Blogging is an undone activity.  There’s always something new to talk about and while you may have your core principles, the glut of ideas on the Internet can convince you to think otherwise.  Blogging is for the elastic brain.
