I found out this morning that I was tagged by Flat Coke & Flies for this short meme, asking me to list 5 reasons why I blog. Initially, I thought, “Shoot, I don’t have 5 reasons.” And then I remembered that in my first blog post, a Preamble posted on June 3, 2005, I had listed 2 reasons, so I only need 3 more! Yay!

List 5 reasons why you blog:
1.) “If nothing else, the record created on here will show me whether my dark days are truly outnumbered by my happy days (a goal Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขm working toward), or”…
2.) …”serve as a tool for me to seek and display the silver sunlit lining around the ominous cumulonimbus clouds.”
3.) To keep exercising those writing brain muscles so that my major doesn’t totally go to waste, and to hopefully stay warmed up in case I DO get up and write that book some day.
4.) To vent when I feel about to explode, and reach 50 people at one time instead of calling each friend and venting 50 times about the same thing. (Just kidding, I don’t really do that. Just 3 or 4 times. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
5.) Cuz I’m running out of storage space for all my diaries.

I’m going to include a bonus 6th reason, because I know I cheated a little on the first 2 answers:
6.) Cuz I have a secret guilty hope that I’ll really be someone someday and after my death, people (like fans of my writing or my future generations) would be curious about who I was, and this’ll give them something to uncover.

Now I get to tag 5 people in return, so that they have to do this meme, too. I see Flat Coke has already taken Jordan and Vanessa, so…
1.) college roommie Diana
2.) Mel
3.) Wilco
4.) TurboTiger James
5.) Jade
Okay, guys, I just gave you a free blog topic. Have at it. ๐Ÿ™‚
