My “online, not a real person ’cause he’s an internet boy” friend Adam told me the other day that I should post in my blog daily. “It’ll increase your readership,” he said. I told him that readership is not the reason I write here. It’s more something that I do for myself than it is something I do for you.
Sure, there are times when I hope for a reaction from y’all. (That’s the aim of most of the “mushy love” posts!) But more than anything, this little Web site is a place for me to vent. I write all the time – for the newspaper, for class, for magazines, in my journal. Those each have their places in my life. The first three are more structured, and the last is waaaay more private.
When I’m pontificating on my ideas about the world and the life I lead, I like to do it in a somewhat well-written manner. I may not always accomplish that, but it is my goal. Maybe that means decreased readership. It obviously means not posting every day. But for me, that’s the purpose this little page serves… and I kinda like it that way. 🙂
And just for kicks, a fun picture.
