Why Blog?

There are basically three reasons I have decided to set this blog up. Firstly, I find myself spending a lot of time posting on Usenet, too much really, so I thought this could use up even more time! No, not really, I am hoping this will save time. Time I spend composing essentially the same thoughts repeatedly and time I spend searching via Google Groups for past postings so that I can be quicker at repeating myself. If I find a particular topic or thought compelling enough to repeat, perhaps turning it into a blog post will help refine it and provide an easier reference for myself and others who might be interested enough to click a link.

Secondly, I think blogs are a great phenomenon, an exciting way to express ones' unique perspective and assert one's individuality.

Thirdly, everyone else is doing it.

The rest is about to become just more history. I hope you do not regret your time spent reading or, hopefully, posting comments here.

    Don't you mean "Why not blog?"

    I'm considering selling my "Empty" blogname on ebay. Seems like there could be quite a bidding war :-)

    My first comment! Hi James. How exciting..er embarassing. I didn't think this would be seen just yet...I have a pile of posts incubating, no really.

    I feel like I have something to prove now. :) (Yes, Empty Blog must be apropos quite a few blogs out there...)
