Why blog?

Recent­ly I have want­ed to blog a lot more than I have done. It’s been inter­est­ing kind of sit­u­a­tion where I have want­ed to blog, but once I have sat down at my iMac/iBook I have just not been able to think of what it is I want to say. It’s prompt­ed me to think a lot about why I blog and what it is I want to achieve. So, I’ve decid­ed I’m going to try and answer those two ques­tions, start­ing with why.
I first start­ed want­i­ng to blog because I dis­cov­ered some “famous” blogs that looked good. When I say looked good, I mean in the visu­al sense. The first one I came across was Bina­ry Bon­sai I just real­ly liked its appear­ance and start­ed to read it reg­u­lar­ly. It made me want to have my own blog, which I could design and play with. So I start­ed blog­ging. As an ini­tial rea­son to want to blog that seems to have been met, the appear­ance of this blog has changed incred­i­bly, but quite often because I haven’t real­ly found a pur­pose for it. Even now I want to change it as it does­n’t feel right yet. This brings me to why do I do it now. Well, I enjoy it, sim­ply put it’s some­thing I like to do. I like to sit and write some­thing and think I have some­thing to say. Often I don’t and the amount of time I have been doing this and the num­ber of read­ers I have kind of sug­gest I don’t, but need­less to say it will not deter me.
This then brings me to the sec­ond ques­tion. What do I want to achieve? To be hon­est I don’t real­ly know, hence why I find myself ask­ing these ques­tion so reg­u­lar­ly. One thing that I feel a blog should be is some­thing that reflects its own­er. Some­thing that is per­son­al but not too per­son­al and some­thing that is that per­son. So I want my blog to reflect that, in both how it looks and what it says. As a result it’s lead me to one con­clu­sion. As I am a Chris­t­ian and my pur­pose in life is to Glo­ri­fy God, then that should be the aim of this blog. What I want to achieve is to glo­ri­fy God through what I write and to be open to what it is he wants me to say. So whilst I try to achieve this, I need to pray about it, I will con­tin­ue to blog, maybe not in a big way but in a way that can glo­ri­fy Him. For those of you read­ing who are think­ing my blog will become a Chris­t­ian blog exclu­sive­ly, it won’t, it will be a big part of it, it has to be, but it will still con­tain bits that I am inter­st­ed in.
I’m get­ting con­si­cous that I’m ram­bling a lit­tle bit so I am going to go now. Please do drop a com­ment if you are read­ing and I don’t know you, it would be nice to hear from some peo­ple, maybe let me know what it is you like about my blog or what it is you think I could improve etc.
