Top 10 Reasons Why I Blog

January 5, 2011 by Jen

There’s something about writing a thesis prospectus that produces existential qualms, which in turn lead to quality questioning of the most quotidian aspects of life (and an inexplicable desire to alliterate with the letter “q”). So, while quaffing coffee, I found myself thinking of the following quips about the somewhat-antiquated practice of keeping a blog.

Enjoy.

Top 10 Reasons Why I Blog

10. Someone’s got to do it.

9. I have something to say. Maybe.

8. At least SOMEONE will listen to me (or at least I can pretend…)

7. It’s cheaper than a journal and doesn’t require white-out.

6. Job skills: “Familiar with digital media platforms and web publishing.”

5. The one in 5,241,678 (million) chance I might be discovered, get a book deal, and win a Blooker Prize.

4. Everyone else [was] doing it [five years ago].

3. Once you start, you can’t stop. (See Why Having a Blog is Like Pet-Sitting.)

2. I sold my soul to Google in a Faustus-like bid to survive graduate school.

…and the number one reason why I blog is…

1. Facebook is temporarily unavailable, and I need to procrastinate LATER!!!
