Why I blog (with apologies to Metro for my lack of punctuality)

Filed under: blogging, Metro, societal niceties, survey says!, Wordpress, writing — Frontier Former Editor @ 2:06 pm

I’m an idiot on many levels. One of those levels is not knowing when I’ve been tagged by my friends and acquaintances (thanks, Metro)

Five reasons why I blog:

1) Because 14 years of professional writing left me too word-weary to put down all the thoughts I had before

2) Because it makes me think about the crap that comes out of my thought processes

3) Because I like talking with people despite my anti-social exterior

4) Because everyone wants their existence to be acknowledged

5) Because I want to define what I’ve been and will be

That hurt my brain. I’m going to go bleed out my nose and ears for a bit.


  1. HEY FFE,

    I hope you don’t mind but I blogrolled you on my site.

    If you do mind, then tough shit.

  2. Guess it’s a double helping of “I don’t mind” and “tough shit” then.

    Yummmmmmmm yum!

  3. No apologies required. The blogosphere is a compulsion-free zone.

    Thanks for answering, though. I was curious.

  5. You forgot “because I’m an attention whore” and “A successful post helps me to cry less at night.”
    Oh, wait…yeah, that’s me
