Why Blog?

Ok, so apparently blogging is just not one of the things I am very good at. Then again, I was never one of those girls who kept a diary either. It isn't that I have a problem expressing myself, it is just that most of the time I don't really have anything interesting to say!

I have read blogs where people give every mundane detail of their lives, and while that is great for them, it just isn't what I want to do...I don't think that anyone really wants to hear about how I got up this morning and brushed my teeth and drove to work in the cold having forgotten to start my car in advance so that it could warm up. Nor is anyone particularly interested in how many FEMA forms I cataloged this week or any of the other multitude of tedious tasks that I have accomplished (or failed to accomplish). Or probably even that I got my second character to 80 on World of Warcraft over the Thanksgiving weekend...Maybe if I had a more interesting life I would feel more compelled to share it, or maybe if my life was more interesting I wouldn't have time to is hard to say.

So what is it that makes some people feel the need to share their experiences (even the most routine) with others, while other people are content to remain unheard and unnoticed?
