“Blogging is a conversation, not a code.” – Mike Butcher.
I believe this is true. There should be a connection. Sadly, a lot of bloggers ignore this crucial key point! All they want is to let out their opinion and blabber without really connecting with their readers.
An effective communication contains two key components – speaker and the listener. The same holds true in the “blogsphere.” Unless the speaker (blogger) can effectively convey his idea, then there’s what we call a failure of communication.
