Have you noticed that "weblog" sounds a lot like ...

... why blog?

I never thought I'd do a blog. It's so much more fun to read other people's blogs.

I don't think I'm doing this because it's fun. It's more like I can't help myself. I sometimes have "outsized" thoughts that don't fit neatly into the interest groups or other places I've been posting. I don't want to burden my friends with everything. And keeping things bottled up doesn't feel right.

Will anyone read it? The only thing I've concluded about blogs is that it would be very embarrassing to have a blog no one reads. It would be like someone reading your diary and falling asleep.

lol I know what you mean....but I didn't even think of my blog as being public when I started or even that people would read it.....

I was just doing it for myself....and perhaps for anyone reading my profile to read (which wouldn't be many as locals online are few compared to other area's)

do it for yourself and be glad if we view it...

and whatever you do don't think that comments are a reflection of your writings being read....

oftimes people see a post as a conclusion in itself....majority of my posts never get comments and those that do only ever get one or two usually....I think im only on the lists because I am an addict to be honest and the sheer number of my posts....in comparison to others...try to post every day if you can

We all have different reason for starting our blogs. I started reading other people blogs, and found some of them very interesting. I saw blogging as a way of meeting new people. Some of them have become good friends, and I post comments on their blogs every day.

So keep blogging and let your thoughts become words. Many people will read you blogs, and a few will leave comments.

Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

Wow, thank you all for your comments and support. There's obviously a lot to this I hadn't thought of. But I think I'm off to a good start. I'm going to try my best to post something every day. I appreciate the encouragement.
