Why I Blog
I really enjoyed a recent post by James Somers called More people should write. I think it captures an important part of why I got hooked on blogging. Knowing you’re going to write things down seems to make you pay more attention to what you’re doing and think about how it’s related to other things you’ve seen and done.
Of course there’s another thing which I think is related. I enjoy putting my pictures on the blog. They’re mostly not great pictures, artistically. Instead, they’re pictures that tell a story, or capture a time and place. I think that they their sort of a visual version of how he describes the act of writing. They remind me to think about what I’m seeing.
