I’m taking another break from the festival saga to participate in a meme. I was tagged by Archie and am quite honored. The question is: Why do I blog? It’s a good one, because I’ve been asking myself that question since I started. Here we go.
1. To, for the first time in my life, keep a fairly consistent journal of events, thoughts, rants, rambles, and un-p.c. opinions. As the blog progresses I’ve extended it to include: featuring bands I like and therefore think everyone else in the world should, let skilled journalist expose the idiocy going on in my country, extend the blog to include people I would never be able to meet in my humble corner of the world, and play backgammon instead of doing school work.
2. Who are we kidding? To stroke my ego. As Archie says, everyone likes to do their best and when someone I respect extends his or her hand through cyberspace and pats me on the back it ticks my mood up a notch, can’t help it, it just does.
3. To make my dog even more bored with me. He can tell when I’m going to sit down and write a post—he actually sighs, because he knows we won’t be going on a walk tonight, but I took him on a long one this morning.
4. To overcome my all-thumbs ability in spelling, grammar, punctuation and typing. So far, since the beginning, I’ve been backsliding consistently, and I’ll bet since you’ve been reading this you’ve caught one typo or misuse of grammar that I’ve missed (please excuse all the contractions). Keep trying they told me, and that’s what I’ll do.
5.To reconnect with my sisters. This one is corny I know, but for a while we were flung all over the globe. I’m not much of a correspondent when it comes to the phone or email, but since I’ve been doing this I find I keep up with them almost better than when we were kids.
So I tag Emily, Charlotte, Froshty, and Danny.
