    To Blog or Not To Blog

    that is the question.

    Should I blog?

    If I did blog, what would I blog about?

    Do people read others blogs?

    Why is it called "blog"?

    Sure, go ahead a start a blog, and if you don't like it, then stop. Give it a try. I think there's alot of people here that read the blogs. and "blog" is short for "weblog". I didn't vote in the poll because there wasn't an option of "sure, if you feel like it."

    I say "Why not?".

    I accidentally clicked on the link that would create my own blog. So now I have one. I haven't officially begun it, though. I have honestly always been somewhat interested in beginning one. So I guess I will on this site (the accidental slip of the finger made me decide this).

    So, when I can finally get my chance to really get going with it, I will. If I get tired of it (oh, but to have a place to rant and rave about people!!), I will stop.

    So, I agree with the previous post, create your blog. If you don't want to keep up with it any longer, stop. Like I said, those are my plans.

    I too voted 'polls are for suckers'! But Papaya - why not give it a go, what have you got to lose? You can always delete it later.

    Why is it called "blog"?
    It was a toss between Diary and Log and Webpage
    I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
    Some letter of that After-life to spell:
    And by and by my Soul return'd to me,
    And answer'd "I Myself am Heav'n and Hell :"

    Might be interesting. We can all hear about your curly hair on a regular basis.

    If I did blog, what would I blog about?
    Hair spray? I guess there are three reasons people blog. One, it's a sort of diary for themselves where they can document their lives and interests. Two, it's a means of mass communication where you can jot down what happened to you and everyone interested can log on to read. And three, a place to display your writing or photos.

    Do people read others blogs?
    I glance at them. No time to read them all. There are a couple I look to regularly.

    blog is short for web log. I read everyone's blog, but don't always comment. I would love to read your blog. You could talk about any silly thing you're thinking of or any little think that happened and I would enjoy reading it.

    I say, no Papaya, do not give in to blogging. If you do, it will undo the universe as it is known today. Besides, if you start blogging because of the poll result, it will be based on what others expect from you, and will diminish the value of your blog. Don't do it!!

    That's the thing - you already do in the "Coffee Anyone?" thread. I put all my random thoughts in the Random thought thread and my dreams in the dream thread. Imagine if I had that all available in one place? I might frighten myself!!

    On the other hand, your blog could be the only way to save the universe. If you don't blog, what will we do?

    That's true too. every undoing of the universe creates a new version of the universe. It'll be different, but you'll safe it just for yourself to blog in.
