I found this article How To Change People’s Attitudes by Guy Kawaski and its links very intriguing. Guy also posted an interesting post recently Looking For MR Goodtweet: How to Pick Up Followers on Twitter. I wasn’t sure whether I should get excited or scared at the implications of how easily we can manipulate what people think and believe. Do I want to change people’s attitudes by what I blog and twitter? To an extent the answer is yes but hopefully that is not the only reason. Sometimes I think that these are great tools to draw people closer to God. At other times I think that they are just another form of voyerism, a little like reality TV only on a more personal scale.
What do you think? Why do you blog? Why do you read blogs? And maybe more specifically why do you read this blog? And if you Twitter what is your strogest motivation?
