Many people probably believe that blogging is simply a way for people to waste a lot of time while indulging their narcissistic tendencies and/or posting pictures of cats. This view is mostly correct.

But that’s not all there is to blogging. Blogging can also be a fulfilling pastime which stimulates your creative energy and helps you vent some of the bitter rage that you harbor for the untimely cancellation of “Get A Life”. And while it isn’t always necessarily a good thing, blogging can help you look within yourself and obtain a clearer understanding of who you really are.

As an example, you might think that your mind is teeming with interesting ideas that you just can’t wait to share with the world. The best way to disabuse yourself of this notion is to actually set up a blog and then try to post have some crap to your site on even a semi-regular basis. This works wonders.
