I wonder if the blog's staying power is related to our drive for stories? I've read recently that our brains are wired for stories, and it's clear to any fiction fan (or avid moviegoer) that stories engage us on every level.

I'm convinced that words—and stories—have power. If God made everything through words, created humanity with an inherent drive for stories, and gave His revelation of Himself in written form, it makes sense that words have staying power. Video and audio have their merits, especially for learning, but they seem so much less solid and ephemeral than writing.

I'm a writer, so I may be biased. 😉 But the point stands.
