Why I Blog

Posted on July 30, 2007. Filed under: Musings |

I’ve read quite a few posts stating that blogging is narcissistic, selfish, self-absorbed, or at the very least self-indulgent.  Yes to all!  Who better to indulge than the Self?  When I wake up in the morning, the Self is there.  Self goes with me everywhere.  Actually, Self indulges Me!  Self realizes I need an outlet.  So I’ve started blogging.  It’s just the most fun I’ve had in a while.  Setting up the blog took me hours and hours, even with the support of so many great WordPress themes.  Then, writing the first few posts before I “went public” — more hours.  I began to feel a little obsessive.  I imagine I’ll calm down as I settle into this mode.

I blog beacause it gets me to learn, to research, to thoughtfully consider information.  It’s different than journaling, because, here, I care about every word I choose.  I still do spontaneous outpourings into a notebook, sometimes, but blogging seems to give me a way to find out what I really think and feel.  There’re so many impressions, reactions, and bits of information, longing to burst out of my brain and find a home.  Thank you for helping to clear out my mind, and make room for even more!  Seft indulgent?  Yes.  Salaam.
