Why blog?

I'm not sure what my intentions were when I started this blog last year. To be honest, I'm not sure what they are now. I know I like having someplace to share things or use as a diary of sorts. Is that narcissistic? I'm sure some may view blogs that way. I use the computer pretty much daily, so to utilize it in a diary fashion just makes sense to me. Do I post deep, dark secrets? Nope, you're out of luck. ;) I may share something very personal, but usually save the top secret stuff for myself.

Jason asked last night if I have people read my blog. My response, "It's more for my benefit than someone elses." Yes, I know I have a few people who check in (but never comment--you know who you are) and Jen, my wonderful friend Jen, comments when she comes to visit. Do I want to flood this page with the masses? Uh,uh, too much traffic then. I use this to organize some thoughts and whatnot. If you don't like what I'm posting, then don't read. I'm doing this for me.

It's also nice to have my own blogger account for using when I post comments on someone elses blog. I have to admit that I've developed a hankering for blog reading. There are a few that I check every other day, and some weekly, etc.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by if you did. I do hope you come out of the woodwork and at least post a "hi" as a comment someday.

I'm not sure if you know this, but you can add a web site meter to your blog home page. It will give you an idea of how many people are visiting, and if you're like me, it is hilarious to see how people stumble on your blog when they enter search terms on Google and such. I use, but there are many others. All-in-all, it is fun to see the visit meter ticking upward. Sharing...
