Why Do This?
The question has been posed: Why do I do this? Why do I blog? Why do I post on a regular basis?
It really is a multi-faceted answer.
1) I enjoy writing. I see this thing as a way to develop that. I think my writing can use all of the practice that it can get, so I’d like to think that the more I do this, the better I’ll get. You can be the judge of that — and I’m a big boy, so don’t be shy with the blog-crit.
2) I am opinionated. This gives me a place to share some of those opinions. Some days, I am more comfortable than others sharing what I really think about things.
3) I enjoy being a part of this sub-culture. I enjoy the connections that develop over time as people read my blog and I read others. I like to think that from time to time I might have something to share with fellow bloggers (and blog-stalkers) that provides them with an opportunity for some vicarious learning. I know I have benefited from reading others’ posts and comments.
4) I have a really cute kid. This gives me an excuse to post pictures of him and tell goofy stories about him. And talk about how awesome he is. And about how thankful Jen and I are about being entrusted with the task and privilege of raising him (foreshadowing).
