I have been blogging daily for over a year and a half. I have been blogging for 8 years (some of that on LiveJournal). I have slightly changed what all I post about over the years.
I blog for me. It isn't that I don't care about readers. It's not that at all. I love readers. I just mainly blog for me. I think if I blogged for others, I would have lost interest ages ago. I blog for the chronology of my life. I like to be able to go back a year or two and pick a random day and know what I did. I know that many people find my life boring, heck I find it boring too, but it is still my life and I still post about it.
Over the past 1.5 years, my favorite blogs have changed. I have started to enjoy some more and some less. I don't particularly favor a type of blogger over another, other than I enjoy the bloggers who actually post more about their lives. I think this is because I post about my life and that's what I enjoy. If I didn't write about my boring life, I'd have a post a month if that. If I blogged only when I had something thoughtful and exciting to write about, that would also be rare.
I blog to share about my life with others. I blog to interest with others. Some of my interactions with people are solely commenting on each others blogs.
I probably blog for all the wrong reasons according to big or famous blogs out there but these seem right for me. Blogging and getting my thoughts down has been great and I feel like I've been happier over the years after writing things.
Why do you blog? (Or if you don't blog, why don't you?)
