I’m curious to discover why DO we blog? Why are 1.44 million of us sitting at computers typing 500 to 1500 words on average, in hopes that someone else will sit at a computer and read them. We further hope that people will leave a comment; share our work with their networks, friends and connections; or take some other action on our site. Please let me know your main and secondary reasons for blogging in the comments; I know they can be complicated and inter-related. I’d love to hear your answers below.This is a quick post that I hope will be up here for a long time generating comments.
When I mention the name of my blog, I get asked… “Why do you blog?” I blog because I enjoy the process of researching and sharing information. In another life I would have been a teacher. I have also always been fascinated by people and am full of curiosity. I’ve also been a writer for most of my life, mostly because I enjoy it, rather than as a profession (other than writing for work). I’m also a PR pro of 20 years, and a part of my role in PR has been to help people connect with information of interest to them. What better way than a blog?
So I ask again – Why Do You Blog?
If you are on Twitter, feel free to mention your twitter name, I have a plugin that will make it a link to your account – I’d love to connect there too. On Twitter you can find me at @WhyDoWeBlog and @CathyWebSavvyPR.
