The banes and benefits of blogging are frequently discussed.
The time sucks, the content, the communication, the addiction.
All true in varying degrees for varying people, both pro and con.
And that's normal and natural in any phenomenon.
Someone ( my usual source) wondered recently about "voice" in blogging.
If a writer displayed a voice in their published prose different from their blogging voice, would it discomfit and disappoint their readership?
There's really no one answer to that, I suppose.
Some writers speak in tongues anyway - adjusting their style and voice to their topic.
But blogging can affect voice - and not always in a good way.
How many blogs have you come across that sound exactly the same as the ones before them?
General, generic, homogenized.
And if one reads earlier posts one can see the gradual erosion of individuality, the emergence of bland blogger voice.
You can run aground on a lee shore.
Groaner Q& A.

Q: How do you catch a unique rabbit?
A: Unique up on it.
