Robbie asks "Why do I BLOG?"

Why Do I blog?  Simple.  In one sentence, three reasons —

    • to explore, express, and share my ideas & feelings,
    • to meet new friends, and
    • to market my band.

Back in 2009, I accepted a challenge to list 25 interesting things about me.  If you have a moment right now, please read a few of them.  If something I said catches your attention, please tell me.  I’d like to know more about you, too.

One of those 25 things was my relatively new habit of blogging.  Here’s what I said:

“I love to daydream about our future, and I think blogging has astonishing potential.  Each of us (with only a desktop computer, or a cellphone, and a little imagination) has the power to keep a diary online, broadcast it worldwide in an instant, and dialogue online with others about THEIR broadcasts.  Look at mine.

So far, the early consequences of blogging are enormous — think about nearly universal personal communication and the widespread transmission of our ideas, how human society is bound more tightly now, and how political institutions are changing worldwide. Progress is moving fast, it never stops, and these consequences are only the beginning…”

It’s several years later, and I still agree with all that enthusiasm.  In some ways, it’s even truer today, although newer voices in social media seem to be growing more influential.

Through a few more years of training and lots of practice, I feel my blog has helped me grow more effective at sharing ideas and feelings, meeting new friends, and marketing my band.  And I intend to continue building on that success.

And in these years, I’ve discovered two more benefits for why I blog:

    • First, I get to explore some interesting ideas that are new to me, and
    • Second, I think more deeply about ideas I’ve been taking for granted.

Sometimes I wonder about blogging when I get really busy—but I get so much out of it! I love the connections I make with fellow bloggers!

Thanks, Tazim, Being busy is good, but you can’t stay busy all the time. However you can always blog, and visit other blogs. A blog post can remain online forever (I think), so all of us can never run out of new friends and inspirations.


I’m new to blogging and absolutely love it. I hope I still feel this passionate about it in a few years like you do! I especially enjoyed your thought about the potential of blogging. I liked your facebook page so I can check back again.
