I still don't know all the ins and outs of blogging. But it can certainly suck time from you. There are some hilarious sites I follow just for that reason. And there are some fantastic quilting sites I follow. And of course I follow my friends, to keep up with their lives.
This world of blogging is quite unique, and everyone does it for a different reason. I do it for 2 reasons.
I had been trying to get my head around the personal aspect of it, yet the openness of it all. You write whatever your private thoughts are, yet the whole world, thanks to internet, has the ability to read it.
A friend of mine put it into perspective yesterday. She said, "your blog is like your living room, you can say whatever you want in it, and no one can tell you what you can and can't do in your own house." (barring copyright issues=)
I thought that was very insightful and very true. So I will continue to blog along expressing myself and you can choose to visit me in my living room or not.
