I continue my ‘philosophical’ series by speculating why we actually blog. My day was not that productive, not much done and achieved. After some struggles, I thought ‘Damn it, I gonna do something nice for myself, something I really like and enjoy.’
And here I am writing a blog about blogging. I like expressing myself, what is on my mind, what I think. Sometimes, the posts are well-thought and well-structured. Sometimes, just some lazy random stuff. In the end, why not? 🙂 I like sharing what is on my mind, then to discuss it with the commenters (though, I am not fast with replying).
When I had the series ’90s in Russia’, some of my friends were truly shocked with particular experiences from my childhood. They simply knew nothing about that, till they read those stories here. No, there is nothing secret about it, I just didn’t feel comfortable talking about the past. I also should say that I feel much braver to write here than speaking out to the people around me. Interestingly, I might be more ‘me’ in my blogs than I am in real life. No, I don’t try to impress others or to be better than I am. I think this is just a fear of being judged, a fear of not belonging to the crowd, although I am surrounded by nice and understanding people.
These can be my true motives to write. Well, may be making some money out of it some day, too. You never know. 😉
Recently, I have talked to my friend who also blogs from time to time. For her, blogging is the way to socialize with people from far away. Another friend of mine has a more profit-oriented approach. There are people who actually have something to tell to the world, who motivate others. Our motives and roles online are as different as they are in real life. Many of us start blogging out of curiosity, but often there are also motives, which we might not fully realize.
So my friends, why do you blog? 🙂
P.S. I hope you can comment now, as there were some issues with it previously.
