Some argue that the internet has affected our abilities to read and write. However, writing and reading on the internet versus physically writing and reading are two separate settings that thus require separate thought. In terms of blogging, the form in which bloggers and readers write is much more informal than the traditional and tangible ways of reading and writing. Blogging, thus, should not be viewed as subordinate to the more traditional forms of the written language, but rather as a different form. With this in mind, one cannot use written words and responses on blogs to determine that our society’s ability to read has shifted.
