I love that phrase "delicious ambiguity." This is post number 759.
This morning I went through my blog links and read every new post. Two of the blogs were talking about our blog lives, why we blog, the friends we have made through our blogs, etc. That got me thinking about why I do it. The answer? I have no idea.
I began this blog as an outlet to help me deal with something I was having a hard time dealing with. That issue resolved itself (as things tend to do) and now I find myself almost 2 1/2 years later still blogging. At this point I can't say how long I will continue to blog, but I can say that the nature of this blog has changed. It is less personal than it used to be, but it is still my outlet. At one point I was posting several times a day, but these days I force myself to limit it to one post a day (unless, of course, something just screams to be talked about).
A couple of my blog friends have not posted anything new in over two months. I had thought about removing the links, but I like them, and I keep hoping they will resume. One of the missing was my very first link, but his life has moved on and the blog seems to have been left behind. But still.. I cannot remove the link. Maybe after a year or two.
I have watched one particular blogger go from not even knowing what a blog was to becoming one of the nominees for the Bloggers Choice awards, among many, many other awards. (Gooooooo Odat!)
I've seen people's lives change and read daily about how they deal with the changes.
My life has changed dramatically from what it was just last year ago. I still have the same job, same home, same family, but one has been added to the mix that I suspect will bring more (welcome) changes to me and mine.
So now I must go to work with the Insane Potty Monitor, the goofy office partner and the most excellent boss dude (a/k/a AcidBrother). And yes, I will continue to blog about it all, because at this point, it is what I do.
