It made me think back to why I started blogging in the first place. The answer is simply as a writer it was something that the great THEY said you had to do. I had just come home from a summer in the Bahamas where I'd started a blog with my hubbie that we called Adventures in Life.
It didn't make sense to continue using that blog and so I started Miss Steps and Milestones. It is a rambling hit and miss kind of blog where I post my rants, my quirky observations and things I find out on the webz that amuse me and I hope will amuse you as well.
I suppose the goal of my blog then is simply: To Blog
Jenny also said this:
"For awhile there everybody had a blog, and then there was that rumor going around that blogs were no longer The Thing and everybody went to Facebook, and now I don’t know what the Convention Wisdom is, I just know I like blogs"
I like blogs too. Last summer DH decided to use Facebook to chronicle his adventures rather than continue using Adventures in Life. I was not pleased with the results. It was great that the Spot locater automatically posted to Facebook. But the flow of his adventure got lost amid the Farmville requests and the other random babbling of the people I know.
I'm not a fan of Facebook, but I can see how it can be used to stay in touch when you don't have a lot to say. Ya know, you want to post a picture of yourself planking, owling, Bradying or whatever the new thing of the day is. Awesome. Cool Dude. Thumbs up.
I like blogs because they are an in depth look at what the blogger wanted to share about themselves and it doesn't get lost in the busy chitter chater of Facebook.
Someday WHEN I have a book that is being published I'll probably start a new blog that can promote my book and do all the things that a well behaved blog should be brought up to do... but for now it is simply the random stuff that makes up my life.
Well, that went on and on....
Why do you blog?
