Ok, I have a question for you. I want to know why you blog. The reason I want to know this is because I’m preparing a lecture on autobiography and blogging, and I want to know what the medium of the blog uniquely offers those who choose to blog. I am particularly interested in why people choose to blog about their personal experience of the everyday, rather than those who blog for professional or business reasons; however, I do appreciate all thoughts, opinions and perspectives on this topic!
So, what does the form of the blog do for your writing? Do you blog to help you reflect and articulate, or do you blog to share, connect and build a community? If both, which is more important to you? Would you blog if no-one was reading?
I will be using a selection of responses in my lecture, which is as part of an undergraduate unit at Stirling University on Digital Media, and I will be feeding back to this blog too with results and conclusions. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!!
