Why Do We Blog?

Blogs are all over the internet. It is a person's voice; a platform to let your views be known, share information about yourself, talk about a topic of interest to you. The possibilities are endless.

There are blogs dedicated to famous people, family members, subject matter, etc. I could go on and on.

Personally, I started the blog to just get things off my chest, share information and talk about nothing in particular. As I have stated on many occasions, I hope that I say something that makes you laugh, makes you think or just tell you something you didn't know already. There are days that I am just blank and cannot think of a thing (I hate days like that).

My friends, family and co-workers always say that my head is filled with all kinds of information. It comes from reading, watching television and watching people. My head is like a sponge, it is amazing the things that I retain - most of it really has no significance, but it just hangs around for some reason. It does help when I'm watching Jeopardy.

Now, why do people read blogs? Well usually readers have blogs they frequent because they want to keep up with the blogger. They agree with what he/she says, and then the last reason is they are just plain nosey and want to think they are learning something about the person.

Those of you in Barryland know my name (probably first and last) but I wouldn't put it here. You know I live in Georgia and a few other things about me, but on a blog that is public I am really careful of what I put out there. Call it paranoid, but that's just me.

Now back to why people read blogs ... I don't really know why. I read blogs because I am curious of what people have to say. Many of the blogs I follow are associated with Barry, so of course I am interested. You just never know when you will come across something you didn't know. Learning is fundamental. :)

I agree. But the question should be, why do people write blogs?

Fascinating subject.
