I blog, and I'm not ashamed of it. Sure it's addictive and I could probably put the time I spend on it to better uses like showering, eating, or going to work. However I feel that being smelly, malnourished, and unemployed is a small price to pay for having a blog that gets updated daily.
In an effort to educate the masses I have decided to share with the world the top 5 reasons why I blog. Hopefully one or more of these points will resonate with a few of my readers and they will be moved to start blogging, or worse case scenario, read and comment on my blog daily.
Believe it or not, I have no life. I know, I know, when you read my articles, hubs, and tweets it seems like I have soooo much going on, but it's all just a clever facade. I'm really just sitting in my room staring at the lime sherbert colored walls and wishing that I had remembered to Tivo something interesting to watch. Blogging is a great way to break up the monotony and keep me from slitting my wrist or worse watching FOX News.
2. I Hope To Get Filthy Rich
Perhaps the word ‘filthy’ doesn't correct describe how rich I hope to get from blogging. But I guess it's close enough for you to get the general idea. I want my blog to make me so much money that I'll have to take 2 hour showers just to get the money smell off me. I want a yacht, 3 mansions, (one for summer, one for winter and one for Black History Month) at least 15 cars, and as many servants as the law will allow before I have to get them Workers Comp insurance(I've heard it's expensive). I also want a teeny, tiny dog and a blinged-out manpurse to carry it around in.
Of course, I haven't figured out how I'm going to make all that money off my blog but I'm sure it'll involve Facebook, Suze Orman, and Google Adsense.
3. Doesn't Everybody?
These days it seems like everyone has a blog. I think they give them away a puberty. It's like a rite of passage. Turn 15, lose your virginity, start a blog. I know people whose pets have blogs. My garbage man has a blog. My mother. . . wait, well maybe not everybody. My point is that blogging is like shopping at Wal-Mart: everyone else is doing it and, like it or not, sooner or later you will too. Actually, I guess this isn't a reason why I blog as much as it is a reason why I don't not blog but you get the point.
4. Chicks Dig Bloggers
Rapper, pro athletes, and actors are out. Bloggers are the new sex symbols. No longer are doctors, lawyers, and firemen the guys that attract the fairer sex. Nope, these days the ladies want the bloggers. Who cares how much you make a year, the hot model chicks want to know how often you update and how many loyal readers you have. Don't believe me? That's fine, I don't care if you believe me or not. . . just don't wake me up from this awesome dream.
5. For The People
The People need hope. They need dreams. They need something to look forward to everyday when they drag in from work and log on to cyberspace. My blog provides that. Nothing cures having a horrible day and almost getting fired like reading about what my roommate left on the floor of the bathroom this morning. Nothing takes your mind off being married to a spouse that you haven't loved for the past 15 years like reading wee bits of poetry that I thought up on the toilet. Nothing makes you realize how good your life really is like the pictures of my possessions and the true-life stories that I post on my blog. Keep that in mind while you are laughing your heads off people. . . I do it for you!
