Blogging for Bloggings Sake

To blog or not to blog! Right? Only time will tell.

I have found myself reading blogs more frequently over the last year – often finding a wealth of information that I can devour and regurgitate at my pleasure.

But why am I here – writing for this blog when I have so little spare time in my life?

I think it is therapeutic for one. I purchase a product and am frustrated at how crappy it is or I want to vent my disgust at how some corporations seems to excel when other, and sometimes better companies, seem to be overshadowed. Where can I vent my passion? The guys at work, my wife, they have all heard it before.

So what is my plan you ask? Gotta have, at least, a high level project definition and perhaps schedule in mind right? I sat down and put together about a dozen topics I can write about off the top of my head – easy stuff – good shit. Therefore I shall attempt two blog entries a month. So this project can easily run a few months without any glimmer of a new idea from me.

What the hell can I possibly talk about that someone else may be interested in?

Shit – that’s what. Really – don’t read this, I don’t care. But I shall write product reviews for some toys that I get handed – some cool code snippets from languages that I am enjoying – some hate-filled rebuke about company’s moronic practices – whatever the hell I want really.

That’s right – it’s all about me!

In other words, you have nothing else to offer than all other bloggers. But hey!? Isn't "me" what all blogs are about, anyway?
