Why the heck do you blog?

Dear Undies:

The other day my friend Cherishy blogged about blogging. In that particular post she asked her audience of 15 million readers, "why do you blog?" At first, I looked around and said in a
Deniro-ish fashion; "You tawkin' to me?" No one answered. Which was surprising because I was in the public library.

Anyways, I decided to write about why I blog.

Let's have a looksee:

It all started on July 12th 1975. It was a cold winter's day. I reeked of baby juices and other oozy gooky icky stuff. Yes! Finally, after 29 days of labor, Undr was born. At first the doctors had to convince my mom not to throw me away and keep the placenta. (Till this day my mom says to me; "Why can't you be more like your big brother Placenty" That always stings a little bit.)

Fortunately, they drugged her and before she knew it, I was 12 years old.

Okay, maybe that is too far back.


Where was I? Oh yes! I was 12 and at this point I had had my fill of army men stuck inside my nostrils and so I decided that it was time I made my mark on this world. I wanted to be somebody. Not just anybody but a somebody, like Yahoo Serious.

That is when I decided to start blogging. Of course, the internet had just been invented by Al Gore, so most of my original blogging was done on semi-used napkins from nice family restaurants like the "Dollhouse Gentleman's Club" , "The Shake and Grab Gentleman's club" and TGI Fridays.

Unfortunately, most of these posts are no longer legible, since I used them to clean up after eating Barbecue Spare Ribs. MMMMMM!

Then, the internet was invented in 2005 and I found a site called "BlackMenReallyHave..." um wait not that one... I meant to say Blogger. In Feb 2005 right smack in the middle of Summer I began blogging.

Anyways, the question is, why for you blog? Well, nosey, the truth is I started blogging because of an article I read in Time Magazine. Reading this article about the made me want to make an impact on this world with a thought provoking, sociopolitical, Barbecue Pop Tart recipe sharing blog. But seeing that I ain't so smart, I started writing stupid things. Stupid stuff like the crap you are currently reading. (Sorry, those 10 minutes are lost and you will never regain them. Never!)

Truthfully though, I feel that blogging is a type of therapy for me. It helps me keep my life in perspective and to make sure I don't start fires again.

The added bonus to blogging is that I have met some of the most beautiful people in the world who currently aren't porn stars. Which is pretty darn spiffy, if you ask me.

As always, Thank you for reading this steaming pile of Grade-A poop!



PS: If you haven't done so, please tell me why in the fool you blog and make sure you give credit to the one and only Cherishina! Love ya, mean it!

PPS ...or you can just stop by and say "Hello". Come on! You know you want to.

Yay! I'm first! what do I win? haha Great posting yet again and we cant have you starting fires.

Let's see...I started blogging in May of 2005. Few friends had their programming geek blogs and I wanted one too - except I also have a love for photography and silly stuff - thats about it ..nothing too exciting.

However, I believe I exchange one vice for another - so now I dont play online poker ...I blog...therefore I am.

Ramblin' Girl--LOL!

I started blogging because my sister was doing it and it looked like fun and was quick and easy to get started.

Once I started getting readers it made it a lot more fun. But seriously, I didn't really know what it was in the beginning, but now I enjoy it as an outlet; a vice to gripe, and complain and also be happy and geeky.

It helps sometimes when I feel like just diving in front of a tain.

And I've met some WAY cool blogger bloggers. Yes, Undr, you're one of them. ;)

I was just going to say hello, but I suppose I may as well tell you why I blog... It's because I need an outlet for the rubbish that I keep thinking up. It stops me from exploding with weirdness in public places. Very healthy activity I must say.
