On Blogging

So, my daughter randomly asked me a couple of weeks ago, "Why do people keep a journal on their website? Like, why do YOU do that?" And I responded with, "Because I can," because that's just the type of thing I like to say to my child. I later explained to her that it's just a different medium for writing. It's a book, published on the web for the world to see. I also explained that my blog is less of a journal these days and more of a random compilation of crap in my brain that needs to be purged.

However, since that conversation, I've really wondered what has become of my blog and why I walked away from doing the self-expression thing on the web. For me, I think this blog - if that's what you want to call it - serves the purpose of being a sounding board for me. Ever since I've had a website, I've had a sounding board. It's just that the posts during the demise of my first marriage and my angst with life were far more interesting than the posts these days that really say a whole lot of nothing. And that's fine with me. I tend not to force myself to type words if I don't feel the urge.

So that's my take on blogging. I thought you'd want to know.
