The creation of words allowed for the creation of expression. I am sure people could express themselves before words but with words, we began to express how we felt at another level. Blogging is a cheap and affordable way for masses of people to express themselves. This has become popular because everyone has feelings and ideas that they have deemed important. Everyones idea may not be important but by getting those ideas out there, those ideas may become important to someone. It only takes one idea to influence the changing of a industry.
