This blog doesn't matter

Maybe I should stop blogging after reading this article:
Blog subscribers seek out small universe of sites - Yahoo! News

I think Jim Lanzone's view of what "really matters" is itself narrow. Do we gauge what is important only by sheer volume? In many cases, the things that only a few people are discussing are perhaps more important than what the masses are consuming.

This is like saying kindergarten teachers don't matter because they only reach 30 kids a year, instead of the millions Sesame Street reaches. Or that associations don't matter, because they only reach a portion of the general population.

To me, if you touch one person in a way that matters to them, you matter. And Ben, what you write here has touched at least this one person many times. Please don't stop.

Well, I think you're right, Sue. But I guess my thoughts don't "matter." ;-)
