Blogs are not conversations

I know some people think that blogs are conversations, but I don’t.  I think they’re publications.

And I think the role of comments is to add value to the posts.  If you want to rebut a post, then you can create your own blog and post your rebuttal there.

I’ve always felt this way about what blogs are, and in a similar way I feel Twitter is not a conversational medium.
