Ralph Waldo Emerson on Blogging

The good of publishing one's thoughts is that of hooking to you like-minded men, and of giving to men whom you value . . . one hour of stimulated thought.

From The Heart of Emerson's Journals, ed. Bliss Perry, p. 94. Entry of 20 June 1835 when Emerson was 32 years old.
