Robert Basic seems to have been quite annoyed by the ever-recurring questions and statements people pose about his blogging habit, so he finally wrote a blog entry (in german), covering the following:
But you mustn't go blogging this!
But what about your social contacts?
Get a Real Life.
That must consume heaps of time.
That's too complicated to me.
Who is supposed to read all this?
All bloggers do is whine and argue.
That's all too commercial, bloggers just sell themselves.
All bloggers are geeks and nerds.
What do we need that for anyway? There's always email, forums and chats.
You can't earn money that way.
That just sucks.
Why do you blog?
I sympathize with his answers, but I guess that at least the last question didn't get answered fully...
