Personal Blogging, Documentary, and History

Since the birth of the internet, blogging has been one of the most sought after applications of the modern day world. It lets us inform and be informed about the latest happenings around the world or someone else's personal experience. There are many blogs that serve other functions as well. While most blogs function as a simple catalog of the life experiences of the author, there are quite a few blogs that focus on collecting poetry and other forms of creative writing. When we talk about blogging, we think of something related to personal interests. On the contrary, personal blogging is a documentary in nature. 

For years, making documentaries was meant to be n objective act of reporting events, sights, and sounds that the writer, film maker, and photographer have encountered. These days, there has been a movement towards the subjectivity inherent in the documentary. Modern documentaries offer a distinctive voice and sensibility - it often revolves around the personality that blurs the differences of documentaries and memoirs. 

What are Blogs?
Blogs is placed somewhere between documentaries and memoirs. Although some bloggers think of themselves as a writer of documentaries, every time a person visits the computer to write something about their daily experiences - they are actually writing their own historical moment. The things we take for granted, the products we always buy, the transportation we always use - are some of the things that fascinate other people who live in a different situation and it is something that we can get from documentary films, shorts, and shows. Blogs can be considered as a very subjective documentary in the modern era. While most people think about it as a different issue, blogs nowadays have a strong impact for the people of tomorrow. 

Most people who spend most of their time to write about their thoughts and ideas in the internet may not aim for a documentary in the first place. In a way, the documentary aspect of blogging is more of a side dish rather than a primary aspect. A lot of people are getting more interested in these public documentaries, memoirs, or should we say - blogs, because it has a lot of things to offer than your normal dose of daily news. It somehow offers a glimpse of the other side of the story. It allows people to relate to other people around the world with diverse culture and beliefs - making it so appealing to people who are very curious about the way of life on the other side of the globe.
