Bloggers are our modern day storytellers. They’re not marketers, as many like to think, but humans with emotions, history, baggage – and specific views of the world. In other words, they are all walking stories, ready to be told.
Stories are more powerful today than ever. Why?
- We are drowning in information. Good stories can cut through the noise.
- Personal stories feel “real” vs abstract concepts, statistics, or logical arguments
- Stories capture people on an emotional level, creating a deeper, intimate bond.
- Stories are memorable. People forget facts but remember stories.

.Storytelling, both positive and negative, is one of the most powerful of all human capabilities. It is surely one of the devil's most valuable tools. (Yes, there really is a devil, but it exists only in the 'Mind' of mankind. It is simply the dark side of Human Imagination.) Storytelling is used in every conceivable way to influence motivate and dominate people. It is easy to spot the evil storytellers on television and in the other media today spinning or singing) their tales of hate. People who agitate hatred and anger against other people, who falsely accuse their neighbors of wrong doing, or start false rumors are examples of evil storytellers or singing) their tales of hate.
