Seems to me blogs are like magpie nests. Out we go, flapping through our minds, our reading, our web searching and we bring back to our blogs the bright, shiny things. I know I'm posting glittery bits and bobs from my own thoughts as well as the truer gleam of other people's observations, experience and research. Are blogs a coping strategy for making sense of the explosion of information on the web? and ironically, thereby contributing to the info explosion.
