I am starting to care whether or not I finish my dissertation.
My blog is worth $24,146.14.How much is your blog worth?
I blog because it gives me an outlet for the crazies. Oddly, my blog was funnier when I was depressed. Go figure.
My blog is worth $29.99. I'm in it for the money, obviously.Other reason: MITTENS!
Therapy, mainly. And to recreate the lunchroom kinda "this is what I'm going to let you see of my life" relationships that I miss now that I work from home. I think most people are funnier when they are depressed. It's like it gives you this odd clarity about the ridiculousness inherent in everyday life. I'm not a fan of depression, but I am somewhat of a learned-on-the-job expert, and I think perhaps spot-on, edgy, neurotic humor is one of its very few accompanying gifts.
I blog to find hot teachers to knit me socks.
Aside from exercising my pen as a writer and as a bit of therapy as a person, I don't know. Part of it is curiosity about what others would say in response to me if they could hear what I say to myself in the confines of my cranium, some of which does end up being fodder for the blog. But I discovered not long after I began blogging that I tend to give in to the tendency to write 'out'; write knowing others are listening or could be or might in the future. This changes the dynamic of my process somewhat, even though I know I'm regularly read by about 4.35 people.
re "...tend to give in to the tendency..."This would be why I need to exercise my pen. :P Jeez, that whole comment could have used a bit more attention.
My blog is worth about $5k. What is that about?I blog because I am a big fat attention whore.
I have kept a journal in one way or another since 1978... this is just an extension of that. I have always written to entertain myself and keep a record of how my thought processes have changed throughout my life... plus, when I die in a hail of gunfire, everyone will know why.
I don't want to know what my blog is worth. I don't need more reasons to be depressed.Why blog? For exposure, for creativity, for community building, for free therapy...lots of reasons...
Therapy, creativity, attention, friends, validation, venting...all of the above. And because I want the aforementioned "hot teacher" to knit me fuzzy slippers in exchange for parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Well, gosh I'm only worth $4,516.32.For me it is all about the interaction with interesting people from all over the world. I enjoy reading and commenting on blogs more than writing on mine. But of course I also enjoy getting my thoughts out there on whatever subject crosses my crazy mind on any given day.
That Web site said I was worthless.
$4,516.32I blog so that I have somewhere to dump out the contents of my head, and because I can't admit to anyone that I know in real life how I really feel. It's the only place I can tell the truth.
wow... good question. it gives me a sense of connecting with others, while documenting my life--both of those things fulfill needs in me.i'm so surprised avitable wants socks and not a penis cozy. i voted for penis cozy, even though i have no penis. it just sounds so... cozy. i would think anyone with a winkle would want to keep it cozy.
So that I can make up stuff... and no one calls me a liar. ;)But I want socks too.
i blog b/c i have no life, what-so-ever so this is my only really accounts of outside life. i also blog so that i can brag about my wonderful kids and how amazing they are without getting "that" look. i can be me, with out worrying about what anyone else will think, b/c i can always delete their comment. ha! i also blog so i can procrastinate more on all the stuff i should and could be doing around here, and that could have been done a million freakin' times over if i would just stop typing and get off the computer. i also blog b/c i can't afford therapy, which i think i really need.
I blog because I like to write, and if i'm honest i like the comments even more.
As you may or may not remember, I have blogged for 5 years. When I started blogging, it was to have a place to record my knitting. No more, no less. But what happened along the way was a community. Women (and a couple of men) who became my personal friends, not just on the computer screen but in real life. My life has truly been changed by blogging. I would be a lonely woman, one who no one "gets".:)
I blog because it helps me with my writing and it helps me clarify tomyself what I am feeling. I also loveall my new blog friends :-)
My blog is worth $58,147.62? Ha.I really wish that meant something, because in 4 years I'll need at least that to cover Daughter's first year of college.I blog to babble on about most anything and not be committed.
