"Why do you blog?" Emily asks

A lifeline?

A rope to the outside world?

A chance to remember who I have been; reveal who I currently am; develop who I am becoming?

I don't just share things with people - sometimes I can't hold things in, but for the most part, I have to remind myself its important to talk to my roommates at the end of the day. I have to remind myself that friends will pick up the phone and talk to their friends about life.

I don't do these things well.

The whole reason I started a blog was to keep people updated on what I was up to, because I was tired of sending out mass emails. Or getting many emails from people wanting to know how I was doing.

All of that said, what has it become? Like Emily, I blog because it's mine. Is that my selfishness revealed or honorable, that the only claim I require is a bit of cyberspace? I guess this is my half-only-child side showing.

I run a preschool and supervise a staff; I am the PR representative of my preschool to parents, my superiors and the entire town; This is a small town and most everyone has 3* of separation; I live with two roommates; I have my game-face on most of the time - I have to; I am getting an online degree because the school has asked me to... I don't have many things that I do because I want to.

Even blogging took a near hit when my new teacher induction required that I start one. That blog doesn't get nearly the attention The Mountain Brooke does, but I do what is required.
