Why do People Blog? It blows up the couch potatoe theory.

I've been studying this question of why do people blog.

I think it's interesting since the amount of time and energy going into blogging real blows the "couch potato" theory of modern people out of the water.

I have a few explanations of why people blog:
- novelty. Maybe it's a craze that will end in another year of so. A little like pet rocks, flag pole sitting, hippydom, and disco.
- new life style ambitions. an enormous interest in making money from home and gaining independence
- a staggering commitment to self-expression and finding souls and community of similar interests
- self education and improvement by reading and learning

I just took a beginners course on blogging which was one of the funnest things I've ever done online. Took about wo hours a week. Very social (albeit online) and I learned tons. Phenomenal experience. Highly highly recommend it.
