Starting posts with “hi”

Recently, I’ve seen a large number of blog posts starting with “hi.” The authors are obviously greeting their readers before getting into business. This has always intrigued me. Actually I find it quite weird. I can understand a greeting in the first post of a new blog, but why do people greet their readers in every single post? Maybe they are trying to be courteous and/or more appealing to the masses? My best guess for this behavior is that this is a reminiscent from sending emails. I also think that it is not a good practice.

    I would say that each author is responsible by his/her posts. I already saw some blogs that each post started with “F… all”, hehe. I agree it’s weird but, good practice or not? I don’t know…

    PS: My posts do not start with “Hi..” hehe

    IMO they are too used with email.🙂
