Why blog?

So I thought I would see what this blog thing is all about. I have never been one to keep a journal tho I always wanted to be. I start journals and swear I will keep up with them and don't. I do however, keep random notes throughout everything. Great quotes written on my calendar, thoughts about backpacking trips in the margins of guide books, poetry written here and there, scraps of songs or ideas stuffed into places on my desk or my shelves. I suppose its very cathartic tho I often 'loose' these thoughts for years then come across them and wonder what in the hell did I mean by that. I do enjoy reading other people's blogs. I can keep up with what is going on in friend's lives (tho wouldn't a phone call be better?), I read some very interesting ideas from all sorts of people, I get new knitting patterns or great links to helpful sites. So that is why I started my own. This way family and friends from far away can see what is going on in our lives. The test will be to see if I actually use it. Will I sit at the computer even more when I should be doing stuff with the boys or chores around the farm? Will I get less sleep? Keep your eyes open...
