It’s Friday, and today I’m in love with, you guessed it, Blogging! It’s been too long since I’ve been active at writing of any sort, and this is my (hopeful) launch back into it.
This morning in my Trove email was a link to AZSpot’s post about what blogging is to him. I thought I’d give it a go, too. Let’s have at it: why do you blog? Why do you read blogs? What are you favorite blogs and why? I love going straight to a site (I’m a typography and coding dork deep down) and have never been able to get into a reader (what else are bookmarks for, right?) – what about you? Do you use an RSS feed? An e-reader with wifi? How do you read blogs? Why do you love them? (And is anyone out there still using Trove?)
For me… Blogging is connection. Blogging is keeping up with friends, family, favorite authors, and fun celebrities. Blogging is organized thought. Blogging is artistic and emotional release. Blogging is challenging. Blogging is design and coding bliss. Blogging is practicing my crafts (journalism, design, photography, prose and poetry) as often and openly as possible. Blogging is asking tough questions. Blogging is participation. Blogging is exploration. Blogging is new technology and happy hours. Blogging is getting to know a city and a community. Blogging is thinking about complex topics, personal growth, and totally rad pop culture. Blogging is gabbing away with you all.
Blogging is fun! What is it for you…?
