Reading Review: Why I Blog by Andrew Sullivan

  1. 1. Reading Review for<br />“Why I Blog” by Andrew Sullivan<br />Atlantic Monthly Magazine<br />November 2008<br />
  2. 2. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.”<br />
  3. 3. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“…a blog, unlike a diary, is instantly public. It transforms this most personal and retrospective of forms into a painfully public and immediate one.”<br />
  4. 4. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“Unlike newspapers, which would eventually publish corrections… far from the original error, bloggers had to walk the walk of self-correction in the same space and in the same format as the original screw-up.”<br />
  5. 5. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“The role of a blogger… is similar in this way to the host of a dinner party. [S]he can provoke discussion or take a position, even passionately, but he also must create an atmosphere in which others want to participate.”<br />
  6. 6. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“The blogger can get away with less and afford fewer pretensions of authority…the panic that can paralyze a writer…is not available. You can’t have blogger’s block.” <br />
  7. 7. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“The links not only drive conversation, they drive readers. The more you link, the more others will link to you, and the more traffic and readers you will get.”<br />
  8. 8. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“The form is more accountable, not less, because there is nothing more conducive to professionalism than being publicly humiliated for sloppiness.”<br />
  9. 9. Sullivan on “Why I Blog”<br />“…the blogosphere, at its best, a conversation, rather than a production.”<br />
