Why Blog??

We recently went to see the movie “Julie&Julia”.  This movie actually started life as a blog written by Julie Powell.  She loved to cook and decided to cook her way through Julia Child’s cookbook and blog about it.  What a simple concept that paid off for this lady in a big, big way.

Anyway, to be perfectly honest, that is the reason a lot of us blog.  Like winning Powerball, the day dream of creating a marketable blog keeps us going day after day, week after week, year after year.  Like all of us that faithfully buy Powerball tickets, the vast majority of blog writers are going to be disappointed if dreams of a big payday are the only reason we keep blogging.  Obviously it isn’t.  We get hooked on the creative aspect of writing and the comments of the people that read it.

We started blogging in order to keep our families aware of what we are up to.  Neither of us are much for talking on the telephone so it started out as a way for us to keep in touch.  Now our blog as well as many, many others have become as common as the newspaper….and some read as much or even more.  So at the end of the day, we blog so someone will read it and hopefully, enjoy it!! AND we still by our Powerball tickets!!
