Why Blog you might Ask?
So Why Not?
It wasn’t that long ago when everybody was asking what the heck this blogging thing was anyway, but now they’re asking why blog at all.
Sometimes I even ask myself that same question. Besides all of the fame, glory and money it brings ;-), it always comes down to the same reasons.
Some will say we blog because:
“they must join in to lend proof of, or significance to, their existence”
“maybe they just think it’s fun to blog”
But for me it’s because:
1. It keeps me connected. I’ve had my share of health issues, and despite the fact I haven’t been able to get out as much as I would like to I can still interact with the world;
2. It gives me a way to express myself besides talking to the walls. My wife once told me to stop yelling at the TV news channel and get involved. So I became a politician. But then I realized that I don’t like the politics (does anybody else notice the contradiction
3. It soothes my itch for playing with tech stuff. I just love my ‘puter and everything that goes with it. Before I discovered blogging I liked nothing more than staying up late at night fiddling with its inner workings, getting myself into trouble and then fixing it. Blogging has given me a life again;
4. It challenges me to be a better writer, a better communicator. Just when I think I’ve made the grade I discover other bloggers out there who raised the notch another level and its back to the drawing board again. Challenge keeps the brain in tune and the alzheimer’s at bay.
What are your reasons for blogging?
