A friend of mine, who does not now and never will blog, asked me the other day why people blog? What do they have to say that anyone would want to read? Hmmmm…what makes me wonder why I think that anyone out there has any interest in what I write. I don’t think of myself as being self-centered, self-absorbed, but maybe…

No Lynna, you don’t have the potential to be self absorbed. It’s a good way to catch up with what is going on with those who do blog. I enjoy reading the very few (select:) blogs that I read! Don’t stop!
Who says anybody has to be interested in what you write? I mean, I’m interested, and probably all of your WSM friends are interested (we’ve been reading everything you write for about 15 years now, after all!). But, that’s not the point. I don’t blog for other people. I blog for me.
I think of my blog sort of like a regular old diary, but with the added benefit of sometimes getting feedback in the way of comments. I like to be able to look back once in a while at the words and pictures to see what I was doing or thinking a year ago or six months ago.
If other people want to look at my blog, that’s fine, and if they don’t then that’s fine too! I like when people do read and comment, but it’s okay with me if nobody’s interested.
There is one blog out there that I read regularly that the author refers to as his “blog garden.” I think that’s a cool way of looking at it. Just a creative little space to grow whatever you want to grow.
Great minds ….
Right after I wrote my first comment, I clicked over to a blog that I recently started reading.
Guess what she blogged about today?
To me, that’s like asking “why do people have friends? What makes you think you’re worthwhile enough to have friends, anyway?”
