Blog 2: What is good writing?

In this blog post, I want you to describe what you think good writing is.  I don’t care what others say about this topic yet–focus on your personal opinion and experiences.

What type of writing moves you (or us) to act or change our minds?  When is writing enjoyable to read (or write)?  How do you know when it is good?  Does good writing matter anymore in the Internet age when seemingly everybody’s voice is picked up and broadcast to the world to influence others?
