I Caved

Adrian tagged me with a challenge. Namely, list five reasons why I blog.

As most of you know, I don’t particularly care for lists. But since Adrian is a friend of mine, I figured I would rise to the challenge.

So, why do I blog?

It’s hard to put something like this into words, but I’ll give it a shot. Certainly my reasons may be different from when I first started, so for a list of five reasons as of this very moment…

1 – Amusement

I quite enjoy writing. It’s a lot of fun. Some of my friends say that I’m funny. And some of the things that occur in everyday life are just too good to keep to myself. Sharing them here makes me laugh even more sometimes.

2 – Challenge

Every once in a while, I will tell Dave a story about either something that happened to me, or something that I saw. He usually asks if I will blog about it, and I profess uncertainty. It is at this point that the challenge is issued: Can Jorge write a story and get the same reaction from the audience that he did when he used the spoken word? I’m pretty stubborn. Backing down from a challenge is usually not the way to go for me. So I hit the keys and see if I can do it.

3 – Information Dissemination

I like keeping my friends in the loop. At the same time, I’m not really a brag letter kinda guy. Important events and such that take place are usually relayed here in some form or another. Due to certain aspects of my life which I like to keep away from the public eye, some of these events are in code. You have to be in the club to understand.

4 – No Good Reason

Just because. Moving on…

5 – People

I enjoy attention. I like to make people laugh. I like to make people happy. At times, I find it helpful when I can make people understand how I feel by using my words and making them feel the same way. Without people, this would just be a diary. And if it was that, I’d just use a little notebook. I love comments. I love the interaction.

Now, it’s Your Turn

In true tagging form, I will ask the following people to answer the call. What are five of your reasons for blogging?

  1. You’re pretty successful at getting the reaction you’re looking for. And so, in true TAGGED form, I present: The Excuse.

    I’ll do it tomorrow. I’m sleepy.

  2. Wow! My first ever tag!! Jorge has popped my tag cherry! Wait, was that TMI?

  3. Thank g*d you didn’t tag me! I’m in no mood to question why I blog since I am currently questioning every single sentence I have written in my dissertation. beh. You, though, have great reasons for blogging. 🙂

  4. p.s. the “your getting taller” comment made me laugh.
