For some, blogging is a method of venting and getting their frustrations out of their bodies. Others use blogging as a way to convey information. Whether it be about the latest celebrity gossip, or how to fix a car, everyone blogs for a reason.
"I blog because you make me."
"The only reason why I ever decide to write anything is because you are sitting here at this computer all of the time. I would much rather be out somewhere around people. You know I thrive off of human contact."
Well maybe if you stage a coup d'etat and seize control of my body you will get your wish. Until then, just be happy with the fact that I allow you to express yourself.
I like to think that I blog to provoke thought. Now, I know that have not presented you with anything that has made you reach into the recesses of your brain and pull out some deep seeded logic. This has not been my aim. I want to provoke "everyday" kinds of thoughts. The type of thoughts that would ordinarily be discussed over a glass of wine.
Have I done this? (Not rhetorical. Answer me.)
Now, on to those who read blogs. These are the people that I am most fascinated with. Why do you read blogs? In some instances, it is obvious why you do. If you want to find out who the new HOT celebrity couple is, blogs make it easy. The best recipe for chicken pot pie, there is a blog for you. New music, movies, technology, you name it there is a blog that has it. It is obvious why people read these blogs, these are not the blogs that spark my curiosity.
I am referring to the blogs like the ones that I have listed in my "Some Folks I'm Feeling" section of my sidebar. I am referring to my blog, and any other blog out there that does not serve a "specific" purpose.
Are you fascinated by the love of art that Niki and Tuesdai Noelle display on SingleBubblePop & Another Good Thought?
Do the antics of The Karrie B. & viva.la.lohan have you lusting to hear their newest stories?
Does -1-'s personalized writing style on ..::don't call it a comeback::.. make you beg for more?
Maybe it's the way 12kyle keeps it all the way real on 12th planet.
Does MsPuddin keep you thinking "Is she that wild and crazy?" when you read A Fresh Taste of Banana Puddin? Is that why you keep going back?
We all can not wait to see where Eb the Celeb is going to end up and the story she is going to have to tell on Renaissance Black Woman.
Is it the respect you have for kid.a's straight to the point style on through my plastic glasses i see...?
These reasons and more keep me reading what I call "Life Blogs". I like to know other people's stories. I like to know what makes someone tick.
So whatever reasons you read blogs, make sure you show love to some of your favorite bloggers, and let them know that you are there.
I just did.
