What’s in a post? Anything. Blogging subjectivity isn’t narrativized. It’s posted. It’s not told as a story but presented in moments as an image, reaction, feeling, or event. The post is a form that expresses mediality as such. Blogs, and even more so Twitter, catch oral communication in linear writing. Like a phone call or text message, a post attempts connection. Facebook friends similarly ‘poke’ each other or leave short remarks on each other’s walls. Unlike calls and text messages, though, blog posts are stored, archived, and accessible to virtually anyone. They are immediacy saved, conversations preserved. Posts persist as traces of their originators (whether the originators be individuals, groups, or machines), traces of the addition of something else. – Blog Theory, Jodi Dean
