The recent comments about whether we need more outside people, our reasons for taking part in this little human study called a blog, made me curious.
Why do you write on 49£? Is it because
a) you want to write for everyone who reads it;
b) you write for the enjoyment of the others in the group;
c) it gives you a thrill to put random crap up on the Internet;
d) you need an escape from your real life; or
e) other ?
Pondering our not having received the Irish Blogs Award, I realized something interesting for myself: I actually do this for (b)---everything I put into a post is driven, probably without exception, by my interest in sharing stuff with the other LBPs.
As I type stuff in I have absolutely no thoughts about Joe Random Human Being who may come upon a 49£ page because Google decided the choice of words looked kind of similar to what one of us wrote. I have some weird sense of comradery towards you-all, even thought I really don't know very many of you particularly well. As we get more chances to meet up face-to-face I find I know you a bit better, but at the same time I don't expect to actually know all of you. It would seem to be self-defeating to not have some level of mystery in place.
Anyway, back on topic: please share what you think is your primary reason for writing on here. Maybe after a couple of minutes thinking about it you'll discover (as I did) that your actual reason is not what you're expecting?
