ArmlessBear tagged me with the top reasons why I blog meme. So, here they are.
- I am a web geek.
Way back in the fall of 2000, I bought this domain name so I could have some web space to play around with. About a year after that I installed some blogging software because blogging was becoming popular and I wanted to try it out. Blogging and messing around with my domain has been fun for me. I cringe when I look back and read a few of my older posts, but I’m still having fun with it.
- To keep in contact with friends and family.
Blogging is a way for me to keep my friends and family up-to-date with what’s been going on in my life.
- For myself.
I document life experiences on my blog. It helps me remember details about great concerts I’ve been to, beautiful natural areas I’ve visited, etc. Occasionally I also blog to clear my mind. Writing can help clarify your thoughts and let you focus on how you really feel. Sometimes I don’t actually post these kind of entries — they’re written just for me.
- To share my passions with the world.
When you’re passionate about things, you want other people to experience and enjoy them. I feel that way about music, the outdoors, photography, my work as a librarian, the world wide web, and other things I post.
I’m supposed to list five reasons, but the above pretty much covers it.
I’m also not tagging anyone else because I am a heartless killer of memes. Yes, I am guilty. I accept all responsibility and bad luck associated with the death of a meme.
