What's the point of blogging?

So I've been doing this for a few days and I still don't get it. What's the point? Am I supposed to become a famous blogger whose words transform the lives of all who read them? Am I the expert that the news outlets contact for my opinion on everything "librarian"?

I don't see any difference between this blog and the web page I had in 1996. Except back then I had to know html. I added stories; I could link to other sites. And I added a guestbook for people to leave comments. In fact, I still maintain a couple of web pages because they are free.

I still don't know what the point of this is, except that I'm a true genius and anyone who doesn't read my page and immediately alter their life according to my instruction is a complete ass.
