Why am I writing this blog?
The honest answer is that I don’t know. So it is good I don’t really need to know.
I used to have a paper journal, and then decided to move it to this blog to see what would happen. Would I connect with like minded people? Would I get “hey stupid” type comments, or at least alternative perspectives, which would help me recognize something new about a topic or myself? Would it help me move beyond where I am?
I did make some connections. Disappointingly few leave “hey stupid” type comments, so not much to learn there. And I am not sure if it has helped me move beyond where I am, although it may have in some areas.
The blog is getting around 1,000 to 1,500 hits a month, although most visitors (85%) leave right away! It is understandable since the topics here may not be of interest to many people. And for the ones who are interested in these topics, there is a plethora of insightful and well-written sources out there. Each one with its unique voice, able to meet different people in different ways.
