“The Web has gone from being a very straightforward thing where you put some text and perhaps some images, to being this incredibly powerful medium in and of itself.”

In the past few years, it must be the blogging world that contributed much to the boom of websites. No wonder. It made web publishing very easy (with little knowledge required) by bringing it to non-developers and non-profitting individuals. More importantly, blogging made it more personal. You don’t exactly need a reason nor a theme nor a subject to publish. It can be about anything. (If you don’t believe me, just examine this blog! :D)
