The title’s pretty self-explanatory. Did you expect a post about deep-sea creatures or something? No? Okay, good, I’m going to talk about blogging. Yes, that means I’m blogging about blogging. Don’t think about the philosophical implications.
I’ve heard many reasons as to why people blog. Some do so because they like the attention that expressing their opinions can bring. When you post your thoughts to the interwebs, some people usually agree with you. Unless you actually supported SOPA. When people agree with you, you feel better. This is essentially the theory behind any support group. So if you blog for the attention, you’ve made your own virtual support group. Congratz.
Aside from the glory and accolades that stream from their lovely comment section, many people enjoy hearing from others and finding others’ opinions. Similar to the support group, this category differs in that the author wants people to disagree with him. Writing to stir up thoughts and prod people’s intellects, this blogger likes excitement. I think I’ll write an article on why Tom Cruise should be president!!
Others blog to inform, entertain, or just express themselves. I started blogging to learn to better express myself, improve my written communication skills, and (hopefully) entertain people. Be entertained! Be very entertained!
Do you blog? Why?
