The Blog Revolution

One of the great achievements of mankind is technology. Technology makes everything easier.

Just look at this blog. All it takes is filling out a few fields, picking a template et voila. My blog is completely ready, functional and stylish too. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Unfortunately there is one thing technology hasn't been able to do for us yet. That thing is, creative thought. No matter how fancy, impressive and complicated you would make your system. Creativity in the true sense of the word is not something attainable by current-day technology.

Nevertheless, this very aspect of creativity is integral to the succesful life of a blog. And through this prerequisite come more demands directed towards me, the human blog-keeper. I must practice dedication, continuity, moderation and patience, all things that are easily automated, were it not for their dependance upon creativity. What a pain.

It is however, at the same time also a relief to me; the human user. For the time being, I will not become redundant and my efforts still hold meaning.

That is a comforting thought.
