Why Do You Blog?
What's your reason? Why do you blog?
The impulse for my asking just arose while reading someone's fashion blog this morning. I could sense the blogger isn't into fashion, per se. Her daily posting of similar, ordinary outfits seems like an excuse to blog, not the reason. I believe, from reading her blog for months, that she wants attention and connection. She wants people to see her and talk to her. The blog is a calling card.
These are normal human needs that everyone shares. Perhaps the blogger isn't getting appreciated enough in real-life and is seeking social interaction online. To be honest, that motivated me when I started blogging.
Why do you blog? Is it because of your ostensible subject (fashion, beauty, etc.) or something deeper?
