Why am I blogging?

I'm asking myself, why am I doing this? People blog for so many different reasons. But why am I doing this? To be honest, I don't know if I'm honest about the reasons. I think one of my primary reasons is simply because I have always struggled to journal my thoughts in writing. Journaling is an interesting thing. Why do people journal? Therapy? Heirlooms? I'm doing this for think through subjects that I've not dared to do in writing.

Really, I'm behind the 8-ball compared to those who have gone before and have been doing this for eons. I want to guard that I'm not doing this for selfish reasons. I've thought before, "Why else do people post their thoughts for the entire world to see? Do they want to be famous? Do they want to appear intellegent? Do they do it for thearpy or to show others that they are ahead of game?" Whatever the reason - here I am...posting in blogworld.

I'm not sure yet, what this will turn into...but I want this to be authentic. If I spend my time impressing others with knowledge or finely tuned words - then I will have lost value in what this is. This is not about impressing others. It's about being real with my thoughts. In light of this, I will not be publically broadcasting that this blog exists. Maybe sometime later down the road - but not yet.

At another post soon, I'll explain the title of this blog -- "vertical resonator."
