Few hours ago I watched the presenter of BBC 's Click TV show mention a Australian research report that says blogging can drive away blues. I guess he was referring to the story published in the latest issue of The journal CyberPsychology and Behaviour. The research compares the mental health of people intending to blog with that of people not planning to blog.
Over the last year I have been living in a place that is a far cry from the fast paced, multi-cultural city life I am used to and it has lead to a certainly degree of social isolation. It is perhaps writing this blog on a unpredictable wireless connection that really makes me feel less isolated. I am rather not sure that blogging can drive away blues but it does give some sense of belonging to my peer groups (read long-haired-smelly-nerds).
