Why Blog About Long Island Sound and the Environment?

Why blog? Substitute “the environment and the natural world” for “art and culture,” and this sums it up.

Bloggers, I learned, wrote as much or as little as they pleased, answered to no editors, and obeyed no rules save for the infinitely malleable ones they made up themselves. Above all, they wrote about whatever they liked and published it whenever they liked. At a time when many American editors and publishers were losing interest in art and culture, this was a crucial consideration.

From Terry Teachout, who wrote it here.
