Why Do You Blog?

Permanent Linkby CrackedGirl on Fri Sep 23, 2011 6:24 am

I was thinking about why I blog and what I am doing it for.

I think it is self centredly mainly for me. Since I was little I have kept a diary and I view blogging in a similar way. I write what is going on in my life and when I read it back later it reminds me of where i was at a certain point in my life.

I think that is why I am maybe more open than i should be - because I look on it like a diary. I know here is anonymous but I do sometimes wonder if I have said too much, but I also know I do have boundaries and there are somethings I would not say.

I also make myself do it even if I am feeling crap because I think it is important to capture how I was feeling at that time as well as when things are better.

Do I do it because ppl read it? To some extent yes and I am so grateful to anyone who reads the mundane drivel that comes out of my head. But I think I would still do it anyhow. But there must be something wonderful about the support i get from ppl here as it encourages me to keep going - so thank you.

So I am curious about you all. Why do you blog and why do you read ppls' blogs?

I suppose I write blogs to organise my own thoughts and feelings. I've never done diaries for long, I always forget them in the end. I also feel that some of my deep-thinking ideas and thoughts need an outlet. Family and friends are out for now so I turn to blogs.
I'm amazed that anyone read most of the stuff I post on here.As for reading others, I'm interested in how others think and view life.

If you say so, Cracked. I personally find it slightly difficult to believe, but I'll take your word for it.
That's also the reason why ppl read yours ;)

I think other people's insights about their lives encourage me to think differently about my life... People's insights into their own lives are so interesting...

I'm always writing things here and there: diary entries, poems, prose, lyrics I have no idea how to write music to, starts of stories I'll never finish. Why I blog? For some reason, I feel like I ought to post some item here. I read other blogs here when something about the title or the teaser lures me in. I sometimes hope to read about an experience I can relate to. Sometimes I just want to know what's on that person's mind or know more about that person.
