Why Do You Blog?

Q: Yo, JB, what's up?

Q: Everyday, you write these blog posts.

Q: About work, your personal life, things in general.

Q: Why do you do it?

JB: Self expression.

JB: A platform where free association rules on various topics.

JB: Where creativity blossoms, where the truth is revealed.

JB: And topics can be thought out in a public space.

JB: Some blogs revolve around the world of Business Intelligence.  Others about the IT industry.  And what it's like to work in the programming profession.

Q: Right on.  So you must be making tons of money off this site,

JB: Sure, if you mean no money whatsoever.  I haven't earned a dime off this.  However, it helps to build an online brand if you will.  We've had over 27,000 views on this blog which has been up and running for a few years now.  Surely somebody is interested in what I've got to say.

Q: So do you consider yourself a professional blogger?

JB: Well, I do enjoy typing away at the keyboard, armed with only an idea or concept.  And within a few minutes, that idea has taken form and is sent off into the world of the internet.  I usually write the blog from start to finish in under 5 minutes, with very little concept of the final product or even blog title.  It's basically like a tornado of thoughts captured in space and given birth to a new entry.

Q: Who would you say is your typically reader?

JB: Perhaps prison inmates with a lot of free time on their hands.  Perhaps the FBI, just kidding of course.  And perhaps some people in the IT industry at large.  My style is unique and the topics vary greatly in short periods of time so the reader is always guessing what type of article will be next.  I would have to say that if weren't for blogging, I would not be a blogger today.

And there you have it!
