Why a blog?

“I’m so excited! I switched web hosts today and I’m going to set up my blog tonight.”
Why are you making a blog again?”

I guess it’s a legitimate question, and one I feel I should answer before I get too carried away. So here we go.

First of all, to have a place to express my thoughts. That’s what a journal is for, right? But that answer won’t suffice, because it’s a lot more straightforward (and a lot more private) to just keep it on your computer.

So what else is there? Not much. My good friend Vince had an awesome blog while it lasted, so maybe I just want to take up the torch. See if I can match wit with an expert. Or, as with Vince, this can be a way to communicate the fun stories of my life (or the trite and boring ones) to my friends and family at home.

I’m not gonna push this or complain if nobody reads it. Really, it’s primarily for me, so if it goes unread I could care less. That said, if you check back every now and again, I might just have something profound to say. And if I happen to encourage someone to think about something in a new way, then I guess thats a good enough reason to blog.

The conversation continues...

    Yo! This blog is AWESOME! I can see it is already the new hot spot on the web, glad I could be a part of it and get in on the ground floor.

What do you think?
