I've been thinking recently about why I keep this blog. Don't worry, I know that sounds ominous but I'm not getting rid of my blog. At least not now. But why do I blog?
It has been a journal that has been with me a long time, and when it started it was the only way I had to share things going on with me. I have to admit that Twitter and Facebook have changed the way I share my personal news. That's a very hard admission for me to make. People talk about the blog being dead and I hate that, but I have to admit that things change. I do not react well to change. It's not like I'm going to be blogging when I'm 70. Or will I? Why do I blog?
All the cool kids are using Tumblr as a new more dynamic form of blog. I'm not wild about Tumblr and probably won't move over there, but one day there might be a compelling alternative to the traditional blog and I'll have to make some decisions. And that day I'll really have to know why I blog.
