I am really forced to ask "why on earth would anyone want to ?"

Not only do "blogs" have the silliest name imaginable
(is "Web log" /really/ too long to use ?), but they are surely
the most pointless form of self-aggrandisement ever invented,
serving only to enhance (in his/her own mind) the image
of the so-called "blogger" whilst leaving the rest of
the world not one iota better off.  Please, Dr Flom, leave
"blogging" to the great unwashed, and write /real/ books
or /real/ articles that actually serve to enhance the
world in which we live ...
