I have asked myself over and over again, what it is that my blog is or, should be about. Most bloggers have a fairly definitive category for their blogs. Mine is simply about whatever I’ve encountered within my days. Essentially, they are akin to writing out an obsessive thought or a stick-out incident during my days. Does that make me a journaller rather than a blogger or, are most blogs more like a journal?
I’ve also asked myself why I’m writing a blog rather than simply writing in a book with a key like in highschool and calling it my diary? Do I have an ego and feel that my points of view are so valuable that anyone who stumbles across my blog should read? Afterall, who am I really? Why does anyone care what I think or what happens during my day?
As I look at the stats that run across the top bar of this entry while writing this, I have to wonder who cares anyway? The views are approximately one per day. Essentially, that means that no one is really paying attention anyway so, what does it matter whether I have a focus or cause or not? What is the real intention for me blogging in the first place? Why does anyone blog to begin with?
I suppose that I’m just like everyone else who decides to start a blog. It’s the same as anyone who likes to tweet on Twitter or, post what they’re thinking or doing as their Facebook status. Unless you’re a celebrity, it’s simply a social way of expressing or sharing our thoughts and feelings or, experiences. Maybe, that’s enough. Perhaps, that’s all that there should be to it. And, perhaps, one day, more than one person, other than myself, will find something that I have shared, of interest or help. Who knows? At least there’s a chance that someone will comment. A journal can’t respond.
