Why Should People Read Your Blog?https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2019/04/26/qq-why-should-people-read-your-blog/
If blogs were only for reading, then I think most blog software would be considered bloated.
In order to simply read, plain HTML is completely sufficient and fine.
IMHO, the main reason why people should read is pretty much the same as the reason to listen: it is an essential part of communication, interaction, engagement, participation in a collaborative effort towards mutual understanding and life / project development, growth, and the whole notion of “progress” in general.
To that end, blogging software / technology must be more sophisticated than plain paper, ink, printing presses, dead trees and other such “outdated” technologies.
