Quotes To Summarise The Reasons For Blogging

Today I stumbled across a quote from Cyril Connolly, that perhaps sums up the whole point of blogging, better than any other: “Better to write for yourself and have no public, than write for your public and have no self.” Many people always wonder why other people blog, and they wonder even more why I blog, after all, it can appear self indulgent writing about yourself or your beliefs constantly. However I think this is half the fun. Taking time out of your busy schedule to put key to keyboard to and construct a valid argument on your chosen topic not only enables thoughtful debate, but increases your knowledge as you research the topic in question. As Steven Droke said: “Knowledge is power, and enthusiasm pulls the switch.” So whats stopping you, start up your free WordPress blog now and get blogging. Its great fun, and I personally find it a great way to unwind and de-stress!
