Why do I blog?

8 December, 2004 7:59 AM

Bene asks 'Why do you Blog' - thought I'd give it a go.

My reasons for blogging have changed quite a bit since I started. Originally I just wanted a place to record my journey, to keep ideas and to talk out loud as I sorted through what I was doing and thinking. I also saw it as something of a discipline that would help shape and refine me. I reflect upon these reasons now and think it was a fairly insular view of blogging - all about me really. My ideas soon evolved to also include a relational aspect to blogging.

It didn't take long to realize that blogging wasn't just about bloggers themselves but that it was a medium that had incredible potential to connect people with one another. Blogging became about mutual learning relationships, sharing ideas and experiences and building friendships.



was interested to read why you started to blog. My blog is nearly a week old, why don't you visit and read my first post on why I'm bloging?
