in between the election and the renovations, i've been thinking about the class on blogging im expected to give on thursday evening. (i also have a radio show to do that afternoon - it never rains, but it pours.)
i've been thinking about blogging, about why i blog, about why others blog. but besides the question why blog at all, i wondered what makes people start in the first place.
i started blogging over a year ago, just around the time we moved my grandmother out of her house at the jersey shore where she had lived for nearly 100 years, and up here to connecticut. on the one hand, i know the blog serves as an outlet, a cathartic release, a blend of public rant and private whine. if no will remember me for my secret thoughts, what better place to make them public?
but sometimes it feels like more than that.
so what about you, gentle readers-who-also-blog? what got you started?
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
what made you start?
