To blog, or not to blog; that is the question

Recently, a friend of mine has started blogging, and its somewhat re-kindled in me the desire to blog.  I really enjoy the process of writing out my thoughts, molding the misty concepts into a concrete, and (hopefully) well-written, post.

The problem is, though, what should I write about?  I have so many interests and hobbies, many in odd juxtaposition to each other, that, other than myself, and people close to me, I really can’t see anyone following what I’ve got to say, even if they should happen to stumble upon me and my blog.  It just seems really unlikely that someone who might be interested in one of my programming posts would also be interested in a worship music post too.  Or that someone interested in my fusion power posts would care to hear about the latest discovery of a great Irish folk/rock band.

You see what I’m saying here.  I need to pare down what I write about.  I can’t really blog about “everything under the sun.”  Its just too wide a gulf.  So, what should I write about?  Of course, nobody’s listening to me right now anyhow, so this is really more of a rhetorical sort of question, but, hey, if you’re out there, listening to my ravings, feel free to let me know what you’re thinking.  I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Why not write about an IT-centric, fusion powered, Irish folk band that prays? I’d read that!

  2. Well, the question is, are you blogging for you or for someone else? If it’s for you, write about anything and everything that you want to!

    • Well, you see, I think the answer is both of your choices. If it was just for me, I’d just keep a journal. But, I also would like to think, that once in a while I’ve got some good points to make.

      Or, maybe, its just an ego trip, and I really just want to share my personal journal with you lot, and get you all to tell me how fantastic I am!
