‘What makes what you write have anything more than passing meaning in a vast sea of blogs? Does it have any meaning if only, say, ten people read it, or twenty or a hundred? Does it have meaning if someone else links to it or comments on it?’

Excellent questions from a very sustained post by Bud Parr of litblog Chekhov’s Mistress.
