OK, Grandad is totally responsible for this post. He tagged me on his site yesterday requesting or requiring me to write this post. Now of course I had one of most intriguing and beautifully written pieces of interweb literature ever put down on a laptop keyboard to post today but alas I deleted it in preference to this one.
Why do I blog?
Because it’s there.
Because I can.
Because I’m an American and it’s my God given right to blablahblahblahblah…..
‘cause I fuckin’ want to, damn it
I maintain this site because it’s fun. I do this as an exercise to better my piss poor writing ability. I write this stuff because I have a metric shitload of ideas constantly running through my head and occasionally they pop out and run down my arms and infect my fingers. Maybe I do it because I want to see how many keystrokes it takes to break my laptop.
Last Christmas time a friend whom I won’t mention is Jefferson Davis was telling me over and over that I should start blogging because I had sent him some poems and prose I wrote and he really liked them. We were doing the Podcast every week and every week he would ask me when I was going to take the plunge in to the online web journal-sphere. Just this past January I went to WordPress.com and started looking around and now yous’ guys’ are all stuck with me.
One of the things that I really enjoy as much as putting together fun, silly, thoughtful, argumentative, pedantic, dull, boring and PAROCHIAL posts for yous’ guys’ to read is reading all your blogs. Someone stated on their blog that they do not write for an audience, I do. I write most of this for me first and you secondly but it’s a good balance and I enjoy it.
I really enjoy, “blog bouncing”, and reading all these different styles and ideas and attitudes. Literally every day I find a new blog of interest. Occasionally I find one I really like. You can find those occasions listed on the right under Links I Like.
This has become a hobby of sorts(like I don’t have enough hobbies) in that rather than turning the vidiot box on I like heading off into the cyber-ocean of blogs and swimming around for a bit in the evening just to see what washes up.
Now we come to that part of the post wherein I am to TAG others so that this virtual chain letter can continue on with a life of its own. So let’s see…hmmmm, how about….nah…maybe I’ll pick…..no she won’t do it……..Oh I got it….
Kate, because I said so
