This is a response to the blog post by Kev Quirk
I don’t know how many hello worlds I’ve ever had but I know it’s enough to make it hard to count! The reason I have a blog is that I like expressing my point of view. The thing about social networks is that we write for our followers and it’s what I don’t like about it. People with more followers are the ones who feel they own other people and last thing I want as a free human is to be defined by my followers count.
However, in my blog, I’m free to write whatever I want, without fear of being judged or attacked by others. My blog is the place I can write stuff and be sure that nobody has anything to do with it. Unlike social networks, there’s no moderator but me, and there’s no person who I have to care about but me.
I write for myself and people who really think my opinions are worth reading; not for people who followed me just because of a stupid number on their profile/page.
