Bloggers are Historians
The writer may very well serve a movement of history as its mouthpiece, but he cannot of course create it.
I find that bloggers are today’s journalists. Not in the sense of news reporters but as diarists. The record keepers of our current civilization.
Every day people around the world document their day-to-day lives, the mundane, urbane, and extraordinary.
Together, our voices represent the future as well as the past, the past that will be uncovered in the future.
Do we create the future as bloggers? Do our words move and motivate individuals and nations?
On this I disagree with Marx. The pen, and blog, is indeed mightier than the sword.
