Should I be funny? Should I be serious? Should I touch on politics? Should I comment on religion? Or Values? Or Guns? Should I just do the photo of the day and not bore you with my words?
Should my goal be to entertain, to inform, or merely to ramble? Why do I do this thing called bogging?
This has been a serious year, at times reflective. In some part that was influenced by everything that happened in my life. I have also drawn more caustic comments this year, I am pretty good at ignoring the trolls, though I did shut off anonymous comments. The harshest, were unwilling to identify themselves. I am sorry if that hurts the kind hearted, just create a free blogger profile and comment away.
Looking back there is some good stuff, some boring stuff, some pretty postings, some very personal postings. I have struggled more to keep up the post a day. I write and schedule ahead of time, often in batches, and at times it shows that I do that. I am not as spontaneous as others.
In the end, I blog as an outlet for what I am thinking, and to share images (the vast majority of which I have taken.) Committing to a daily posting forces me to write, and the more I write, the better my writing is (typos and all.) I didn't set out to attract a following, I started blogging for fun and friends. And I have met some wonderful friends through blogging, and there are more I would like to meet.
Why do you blog, and what is your blog address?
