Why blog?

I think a combination of a few things motivate people to create web logs:

  • A desire to be heard and to express one's views.
  • A desire to capture a daily "stream of consciousness" of one's thoughts.

I'm trying it out as a way to publish thoughts and ideas, and as a trial to see if it could be used by my family as a way to share stories and articles.

I had rather hoped that Blogger would have more intelligence in how it chooses to add <br />, <p>, and other markup into my text. My initial tests reveal very rudimentary logic, unfortunately. I'll probably try making all my entries in pure HTML.
