Meme Time - 5 Reasons Why I Blog

Well, this is a different meme and one that fellow blogger Indigo Luna had posted, so here goes!

1. I had gotten laid-off and actually had the time to sit down and figure it out and also to find my voice. I had been reading everyone else's blogs for some time and knew that I could fit somewhere inbetween.

2. None of my local friends even know that I do this, so it serves as an outlet for the really crappy days and I can bitch about them and they will never know!

3. It is an opportunity to dialog with like minded, and when they are not at least they are intelligent and open to discussion, people about issues that I consider important.

4. It is a way to make my opinions known even if readership is small. There are not that many people in my scope of the world who actually want to discuss some of these topics, so this is my chance to put it out there.

5.It is fun! I look forward to the running conversations, or not, and the friendly banter. Adding photos and other misc. serves as an enjoyable passtime.

Why do you blog?

I began blogging because I was pissed off! I started right after the 2004 presidential election, and the first few months of blogging were pretty intense. Then, I think it was around Christmas in 2005, I deleted my blog and went on hiatus for a month. I wasn't sure if I was going to come back to it or not. But, I missed it, and I started up again. I still blog about politics, but I also post about things I find interesting and even about my personal life. I've made what I consider some very good friends this way (especially you!) and I am very glad I went back to blogging.

I actually hadn't put any real thought into why I blog until now.

First of all, I love to write. It relaxes me somehow. Another thing is that I love to talk about politics but most of my friends/coworkers are completely uninterested in it. So here on the internet you can always find someone willing to engage in discussion/debate. Even though its futile because I am always right :)

And, like you, no one knows about my blog. Not family, friends, anybody. I have no intention of telling them at this point. It's like my own little thing that is just mine. I like that.

I concur with both of you 100%.

Well, people start blogging for reasons. For me, I want to share opinion about kaizen with people around the world.
