LSG Blog Prompt: Why Do You Blog?
If you know what LSG is, hi hoar!
If you don’t know and you knit and read this blog you may want to come visit us on Ravelry.
If you don’t know and you do not knit…just pretend I called the post something else.
I blog because I have all these words. They are in my brain and they want to get out. I see problems and more importantly I see patterns. The post I did previously outlining the Jim Crow decisions that the Florida legislature have been making? That pattern seemed obvious to me. It was only when I mentioned it to a couple of other people that I realized it may require an explanation.
I blog because this is my voice.
I blog because I feel and have always felt that it is my function to learn as much as I can in this life and then teach what I have learned to as many people as will stand still long enough to listen. But I don’t like kids so much and as such being an actual teacher was right out.
I blog because my pie in the sky dream is to be Rachel Maddow on a very small scale when I grow up. (For the record; I am 37. No word on when that growing up thing is actually going to happen.)
I blog because I am a fan of Angel the Series. I blog because of a few lines in the second season.
If there’s no great glorious end to all this, if … nothing we do matters … then all that matters is what we do. ‘Cause that’s all there is. What we do. Now. Today.
Today, I choose to try and make the world better, smarter, more informed.
I blog because I am a Dr. Who fan and the fundamental lesson of The Doctor is to reach out to other people. You don’t have to be a super hero or a genius. You just have to try. You have to try and keep trying and maybe, just maybe, this extraordinary madman with a box will come ask you to be his friend. If that were to ever happen don’t be between me and the police box. I will not hesitate.
I blog because sometimes it helps me work out a cogent position on an issue.
I blog because sometimes I want to talk about knitting.
Or maybe I’m self important and I want to convince myself that something I say matters to people who aren’t me.
