Why I have a personal blog
We're All Just Saying Things on the Internet
This post has been sitting in Drafts for several days. The reason, I've been thinking about it a lot and didn't know if I wanted to publish it. But here we go.
I've been reading Chris Hannah's blog for several years. I found what he wrote about “saying things on the internet” to be very thoughtful. So I want to share it with you.
I like to think that my blog is just an online representation of myself, my thoughts, opinions, and maybe also just things that I think others may find interesting.
So why would people read my blog?
Well, I guess it's for the same reason that I follow people on Mastodon, why I subscribe to people on YouTube, and why I read so many blogs.
Most of the “content” I consume seems to stem from people going onto the internet to either express their thoughts or share their perspectives. That all seems rather simplistic, but I think it's true.
Does that mean a blog is someone just saying things on the internet? I think that's what I do. I think it's what other people do as well. And I think I like it.
Now on to more current thoughts, is this blog post, me talking to myself, or am I talking to the internet? I'm not sure. But if you've read this far, then you have just caught a small glimpse into what goes on inside my head.
Well put Chris! This is why me and many others have a personal blog.
