I am impressed with the response to my question "why do you blog." Some people have left sincere responses -- others, as is seen quite frequently in the blogosphere, have been "cute." The responses are as varied as the bloggers themselves. I encourage visitors to read the comments above, and leave their own. So far, my hypothesis (that people blog because they want to be loved) has not been clearly supported, but I am still waiting to see what is revealed by these responses.
As a somewhat prudish (albeit liberal) middle-aged woman, I was cheered to see one reader believes blogging is healthier than porn. I trust some blogging addicts, however, might differ.
