My blogging life

I don't know how much of a blogger you are, or even if you're a blogger at all (a blogger is someone who writes for a blog; usually their own, but not always), but I am a blogger. To me, being a blogger means that I go through life thinking about what I can write about on my blog. The people that I see, the places that I go, the things that I do. I'm always thinking, how can I write about this on my blog?

Most of what I do never gets to see the light of (a blog's) day, but the thought is always there in the back of my mind. How can I turn this into a story, or an article? If I take a photo of it, will it be interesting enough to put on my blog?

I read other people's blogs, or I read the news or some article, and I'm wondering if any emotional reaction I feel is worth blogging about. Most of the time it's not, but sometimes it is.

And then when I write, I wonder how I can frame it in such a way that it'll be interesting to the readers. I want it to have a feeling that is unique to me, but that is interesting in some way to someone who doesn't know me.

Most of all, I write about things that are important to me, that interest me, intrigue me, that cause a reaction in me. I write about things that I see, feel, hear, touch, and smell. Well, sometimes that I smell...

I write about my life, through my eyes. I love writing about it. I love writing it for me, and for you. I hope you enjoy my blogging life as much as I do. :-)

Alan,
I agree. Blogging does seem to have changed my consciousness in some ways. It's like having an extended asynchronous conversation and being able to save what were once stray thoughts.
As I've said, I visit your site because it is so openly what's on your mind as opposed to some agenda.
