Why Do You Blog?

Rosie the Blogger

It seems like such an easy question to ask, but I’ve found that the answers are myriad. They sometimes surprise me. I recently had an interesting discussion with a friend who couldn’t understand the impulse, despite admitting that he lurked on blogs and Twitter, to read content in order to avoid boredom. 


Mine are simply to:

  • Be better at articulating my views
  • Challenge my opinions  
  • Meet lots of interesting people be it over the web or in the flesh
  • Learn more about the world around me
  • Keep my curiosity piqued in music, design or reading great prose
What’s your excuse?

    I actually find it very theraputic, being able to click the ‘Publish’ button and then launching my ideas into the wide world.
