Blogging

I recently read part of someone’s blog who was rambling about the whole psychology of blogging. How for some it’s personal and others want attention etc. It got me thinking about my reasons for blogging (no clue what they are yet). It also got me thinking about how I named my blog random thoughts only to find out that random and musings are actually some of the most common ‘topics’ that people write about. I guess we just like seeing our stream of consciousness in writing.

Also, after reading Toby’s comments about how she finally discovered how to comment on a particular story it made me think that it’s funny how complicated my blog is for most of my friends/family. I think it’s partly a generational thing, but also I find that once you set up your own blog, it’s all pretty logical and it becomes very easy to use other peoples blogs if they created them here at wordpress, although I still have a hard time finding my way around at Ingrid’s blog (live journal). I also think the whole blog community is interesting. It seems to me that most comments on blogs come from people who have their own blogs. Also, I find myself hoping someone will comment on something I write even though I don’t really try to write anything the least bit interesting (and I usually accomplish that). Also, finding interesting blogs and deciding who’s blog to bookmark is challenging. At first I wanted to bookmark every interesting blog that I came across, but now I realize that could add up really quickly, so I try to be choosey/choosy (spell check says both are correct).

I think Toby, Al and Haus Frau should set up their own blogs. It’s really easy.

  1. I saw your comment over at Bill’s (A Dying Man’s Journal) and thought I would stop in and check yours out. A very nice blog you have. Thought I would sub to you and hope to get to know you better.

  2. I was just reading about how you are not sure of the reason why you started this blog. All I can say is I am glad you did. Through it I get a chance to know you a little more, beyond the wonderful comments you leave on my site.
    I hope you keep it up and I am glad to have you as a blogging friend.
    Bill

  3. In the comment you left on my post about 100 things about me, you wrote you were worried. May I ask why? I was just wondering.

  4. Anyone who would say that people BLOG for attention is a genius in my eyes. (rolls eyes) Well I can be the first to say it isn’t about attention. IT is about being anonymous for most people so that they can write things they can’t say in the real world without REAL reprisal.

    Of course blogging is personal. Everything we do is personal. The choices we make in the real world and the cyber world are based on what suits us personally.

    I really enjoyed this post.

  5. Maybe some people blog just to work on their writing skills.
