The why behind the blog.
It's easy to write a blog when nobody is reading it. No worries about reception, writing to the audience, yada yada. While it is possible someone someday may want to revisit these posts for whatever reason, odds are nothing I am writing now matters to anyone but me. So, why blog at all? Simple: I need the practice. Really really need. I am keeping a private journal for the same reason. Every blog I put out helps tone and shape the old writing muscles, as well as helping me to work out ideas for my actual work. And hey, who knows, maybe someday someone will actually read this.
