Fifth Estate

The government is run by the 3 estates, executive, legislative and judiciary; fourth estate is the media. The fifth estate is fast gaining ground, the blog! But like the media, it's a two-edged sword, used for good and evil, legal and illegal, but the bottom line is the people or the reader or the blogger. You have to maintain your credibility. In the media if you falter, revenue will suffer (loss of advertisements). I think there are some ways of knowing the traffic to a certain blog site; if you lose your credibility, less readers will see your site. This particular blog just highlights the importance of blogs and I'm encouraging the reader to make or start a new blog.

Happy blogging to all!
