Why do We Blog?

I generally spend about 4 hours a day, sometimes as many as 8 hours, on the ‘net, mostly adding to my blogs or rearranging my photos. The most obvious response is "Oh my God, why?". Well, I never really seem to wonder why. Birds make nests, lions hunt antelopes, bees make honey and bloggers blog. Once you start, it’s hard to stop, as you are in a sense carving out territory in Cyberspace for your ideas, your memories, your very existence… you start to live there, you have no desire to stop. What is most amazing is that anyone can see it- people all over the world can see what I’m up to, through photos and blog, not just when I write it, but any time they care to look.

Who knows what will happen to them. Will they one day become a book or books? Will some future society use them as part of their history program? Will my grandchildren or great-grandchildren read them, laughing at my low-tech lifestyle and how I could have endured typing into a PC when they just think something, and their high IQ computer writes it out for them? Or will the ‘net simply vanish for reasons we can’t imagine now? Who knows! For the time being I and so many others, continue to blog. Have time, make blog, just happy to have the freedom to say whatever we want in whatever way we please!
