وبلاگها محل تقابل نظرات و بروز دیدگاههای مثبت و منفی در خصوص مطالبی است که کاربران وبلاگها در اینترنت منتشر می کنند . اما متاسفانه این نگرش انتقادی هنوز در میان کاربران ما جا نیافتاده و ظاهراً هیچکس هیچ نظری ندارد ، چه مثبت ، چه منفی . هنگامی که به سایتها و وبلاگهای انگلیسی زبان مراجعه می کنیم و با انبوه کامنتها ( commemnts) روبرو می شویم تاسف می خوریم که چرا در وبلاگهای ما همه " بی نظر " هستند اما برخلاف آن ، وقتی سری به فیسبوک و فیس نما می زنیم ( یعنی جاهایی که عموماً فضایی برای وقت گذرانی تلقی می شود ) از انبوه کاربرانی که به دلایل مختلف و عموماً تفننی " هوادار " می طلبند کسل می شویم و ایمیلمان مملو از دعوتنامه هایی است که هیچ دلیل معقولی برای آنها نمی یابیم . اما چرا کاربران اهمیتی به محتوا نمی دهند و دلشان با مطالب فیسبوکی خوش است ؟ در ادامه ، مقاله یک وبلاگ نویس خارجی در خصوص اهمیت " نظرات " در وبلاگ را درج می کنیم و از آنجا که همه " بی نظر " هستند دیگر نیازی به ترجمه آن هم وجود ندارد . بنابراین عین عبارات آن را به زبان انگلیسی درج می کنیم .
