I am constantly asked why I don't use
my blog to make money. It
seemed like a simple enough question, but the truth
is, I was stumped. Why do I blog? Not
for money certainly, although I continue to hold out hope that one day I will. Is it a creative exercise from which I
derive great pleasure? Not really. I've always felt that the act of blogging
isn't nearly as enjoyable as the feeling that comes from "having blogged."
So why do I do it?
Well, after careful consideration
I've come to believe that had I been even a moderately enlighten human being in
my formative years; I would feel little compulsion to communicate now. This
leads me to wonder, would it have been
appropriate to have said that I write these blog entries because I was
incapable of expressing myself as a youngster, a situation which caused me
unbearable anguish and is only now beginning to dissipate? Maybe...Why do you blog?
