I love to talk about myself. I think I am interesting. I believe I am quite self-centered. However, I don't always like talking about myself with people because I feel like I am being self-centered. Like, sometimes I feel like I am talking too much about myself in conversations or whatever.
That is why I love blogging. I can talk about myself all I want!! Even if no one is reading because the IDEA that someone is reading is good enough.
Blogging also gives me a place to express my opinions without worrying too much about what people think. Of course they can leave comments, but since I am alone I can take the time to process it. If something is written meanly or disrespectfully I can delete it (or hide it because I still haven't figured out how to actually delete a comment. Hiding also gives me a chance to put the comment back up if it really didn;t need to be hidden in the first place. Ex -- overreaction).
On the other side of the coin, I also like hearing about other people and their lives. I am a very curious and nosy person. Reading blogs gives me the chance to get to know someone without asking a lot of prying questions. Or questions that might offend someone. People will put out what they want on a blog so you can get to know them on their terms.
That is what I love about blogging!!
Why do you blog and/or read blogs?
